Product Information

Description

The Gränsfors Large Carving Axe is used for woodworking and shaping wood.  The axe has been developed in collaboration with master craftsmen Wille Sundqvist and Onni Linnanheimo, with inspiration from old designs.  The Large Carving Axe has a relatively long, curved cutting edge which is double-sided as standard.  The axe is also available as a special order with the edge ground specifically for right-handed or left-handed carving.  The Large Carving Axe, Grinded left side, has a short bevel face on the right side of the edge, if the axe is held in the right hand with the handle down and head up.  The left side of the edge has a longer, slightly concave bevel face, which provides excellent support when carving.

The Large Carving Axe, Grinded right side, has a short bevel face on the left side of the edge, if the axe is held in the left hand with the handle down and head up. The right side of the edge has a longer, slightly concave bevel face, which provides excellent support when carving.

Right-handed persons normally use Large Carving Axe, Grinded left side, and Left-handed persons normally use Large Carving Axe, Grinded right side, while the longer slightly concave bevel face come near the wood and therefore provides excellent support when carving.

The handle has an uneven surface, giving good friction for a firm grip.  The axe is also available as a special order with a carved handle, giving even better grip and control.

  • Length with handle: 14.5″  (37 cm)
  • Weight: 2.2 lbs. (1 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.
