The Gränsfors Small Hatchet is the lightest of all the axes from Gränsfors Bruk, making it perfect for hiking, when every kilo counts. The axe is excellent for limbing and splitting firewood, despite its diminutive size. The Small Hatchet was developed by Lennart Pettersson (LP), axe smith, knife smith and keen angler, who was looking to create a very light axe that still retained that axe feel. The slightly rounded poll functions like a ‘priest’ (used to hit fish over the head).
- Length with handle: 10” (36 cm)
- Weight: 0.7 lb. (0,3 kg)
- Sheath in vegetable-tanned leather
Gränsfors Bruk has committed over 100 years to manufacturing and developing axes. Every axe is specifically designed to meet a particular function, with a tireless focus on high quality and area of use. A considerable amount of effort has also been put into producing axes with sound green credentials, avoiding any unnecessary consumption of natural resources.
When it comes to the quality and feel of the axes, much depends on the experience and skill of the individual craftsman. Each axe is signed with the smith’s initials as a guarantee of quality.
