Gransfors Bruks Hand forging an Axe head

Note: If "Check Availability" is indicated for an axe please call (888) 723-3779 to check our inventory before placing your Axe Order. Some Models (In particular the Small Forest Axe) may be on backorder with Gransfors if we have exceeded our quota.

Arguably the best axes available, these axes are hand-forged in Sweden to the highest standards by the smiths at Gransfors Bruks. Every axe head is individually shaped under the forging hammers from a special axe steel and then tempered and annealed to the right toughness. Each head is then sharpened, oiled and signed with the smith's initials. Axe heads are fitted to shafts made from select American hickory that has been soaked in hot linseed oil.

Gransfors has axes for felling, hunting, carving, chopping, splitting and even throwing. Used by carpenters, campers, log-home builders and home owners, each axe is a wonderful tool designed and crafted for it's intended use and we believe the very best value in cutting tools available. Axe heads come with a 20 year warranty.

American Traders offers an axe handle replacement service, should you damage or break an axe handle, you can return the axe and we will fit a new handle for you. Please contact customer service for return information.
