The Gränsfors Splitting Hatchet can be used with one or two hands for smaller firewood. It is forged and ground to a concave, quite thin blade at the bit. The axe cuts quickly and easily into the wood and then effectively splits it as the broader section pushes apart the wood. The handle has a protective steel collar below the axe head and circular grooves towards the end for an extra firm grip.
Splitting Axes should not be used for striking a wedge or as a wedge. Only the Splitting Maul is designed for this.
- Length with handle: 18″ (48 cm)
- Weight: 3.3 lbs. (1.5 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.
