The team at Gransfors Bruks also has a strong calling to the proper ethical treatment and awareness of our natural resources. Because of a combination between their forging expertise, and their use less, waste less philosophy, they offer an amazing 20 Year Product Guarantee on each of their hand forged items. There is an "Axe-Guarantee-Card" inside the Axe Book attached to your product that should be filled out and submitted to Gransfors Bruks, as well as proper care guidelines for your tool, which will help keep it in excellent condition for those extra heavy workloads. As with any high quality tool, it is important to properly maintain, clean, and oil for a prolonged life span. With the right care, you'll be passing these tools down for generations to come!
The distinguishing feature of the Gränsfors Hand Hatchet is its short handle relative to the size of its head. It is extremely practical to carry in your rucksack on forest walks, or to keep in the car as it takes up very little space. The shape of the sheath, which covers the edge and the top part of the poll, also stops the axe head cutting into your rucksack. The Hand Hatchet makes an excellent scouting and camping axe. Despite its short handle, the axe can be used to fell small trees. It is also great for limbing and for splitting kindling and firewood.
Each Gransfors Bruks axe is hand forged, one at a time, and may be created by a smith differing from the one shown in the, thus resulting in a different Initial Stamp. Be assured, each and every Gransfors Smith is on par with one another, and you will get a fine item regardless of who the craftsman was. If you prefer a certain Gransfors Smith, send us a Message and we will try to accommodate your request.
