Gransfors Bruk Hunters Axe 418
The Hunters Axe is specially made for hunters. The Poll is forged thinner than normal and gently rounded and burnished to a Flay Poll to be used when skinning an animal. Besides that the axe is good for chopping, in wood as well as meat and bones. All handles are made of selected high quality (prima) American hickory. Gränsfors Bruks axe handles are soaked in hot linseed oil and dripped dry. They are then covered with beeswax to help keep the dirt off. The grip of the handle has circular grooves which gives a steady grip even if your hands are wet or sticky. This axe has received, as the first and only axe in Sweden, a design award from The Swedish Society of Crafts and Design. The axe has a 3 1/4" face and a 19" hickory handle and the head weighs 1 1/2 lb. It comes with a grain-leather sheath.
