Here’s the axe: http://amzn.to/1R0cd19
The Gransfors Bruks small forest axe is an axe that is loved by many in the outdoor community. At only 19 inches long and roughly 2-3 pounds (1.5lbs of which is in the head itself), this is a very packable axe for hikers, backpackers, bushcraft, and campers. The handle is solid hickory and comes with a pre-drilled hole in the butt of the handle to add a wrist strap or to hang etc.
Each axe from Gransfors Bruks is hand made by skilled blacksmiths. The axe comes with a beautiful full-grain leather sheath as well as the Gransfors “Axe Book”, and a full 20 year warranty.
I will say that this particular axe is a bit on the pricey side. BUT if you can afford it, it is more than worth it (I had to save up for a while 🙂 . Gransfors’ axe’s are a work of art and have been known to stay in the families of those who love the outdoors. Each axe is stamped with the initials of the blacksmith who forged the axe.
Out of the box this axe was razor sharp and could easily create feathersticks for lighting fires with. It also chops through appropriate-sized wood like a charm.
Again, I can’t recommend this axe enough for bushcrafters, backpackers or other woodsmen/women who need a bomb-proof axe to depend upon in the woods.
In this video I give an overview of the axe and give you a very up-close view of the entire thing. I then go on to demonstrate some of its capabilities right out of the box.
Feel free to comment if you own a product by Gransfors. They are a top-notch company when it comes to these kinds of products and I already have my eye on a few other tools for other miscellaneous projects in the woods.
