Gransfors Bruks Small Forest Axe

Same size as the Hunter's Axe, but a more traditional pattern and poll. The blade is thin. The handle is long enough to allow powerful chopping but not too long so it will fit into a rucksack, the back of a car or a boat. Practical for splitting small sticks for the fire or cutting small-diameter limbwood for starter fuel in a fireplace.

The axe has a 3 1/4" face and a 19" hickory handle and the head weighs 1 1/2 lb.

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.
