Gransfors Bruk Small Splitting Axe 441
The Gränsfors Bruk Small Splitting Axe can be managed with one hand. It is forged and ground to a concave, quite thin blade at the bit. This design helps the axe to go fast into the wood - and then split efficiently when the thicker part hits and pushes apart the wood. The poll of this axe, like the poll on most axes, is not designed for pounding on a wedge.
The head weighs 2 lb.
The face is 2 1/2”.
The 20” hickory handle has circular grooves at the grip and steel collar near the head. It comes with a grain-leather sheath.
All Gränsfors axes are forged by very professional smiths. The proof of this professionalism is that they are able to forge axes with such precision that no supplementary work, to hide mistakes in the forging, is needed. When the smith is satisfied with his work, he marks the head with his initials. All Gränsfors axes provide a 20 year guarantee.
