Gransfors Bruks Small Splitting Axe
Can be managed with one hand. Forged and ground to a concave, quite thin blade at the bit. This design helps the axe to go fast into the wood - and then split efficiently when the thicker part hits and pushes apart the wood.
The poll of this axe, like the poll on most axes, is not designed for pounding on a wedge.
The head weighs 2 lb. The face is 2 1/2 ". The 20" hickory handle has circular grooves at the grip and steel collar near the head. It comes with a grain-leather sheath.
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTE
Anyone removing a sheath from the Gränsfors Bruk axe must replace it gently by first feeding the heel of the cutting edge into the base of the sheath, (there is that little pocket at the bottom of the sheath), followed by feeding the top portion of the cutting edge into the top of the sheath. This should prevent a sheath from being damaged. A cut sheath is usually damaged by someone trying to simultaneously feed the whole edge into the sheath at once or wiggling it in spite of feeling some resistance.
The axes are VERY sharp and will readily cut a sheath that is not put on with care.
If and when such damage occurs replacement sheaths are available for purchase.
