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 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).
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.
