Gransfors Bruks AxesGransfors Bruks is one of only a few axe manufacturers that completely hand forge. Forging is important. Gransfors Bruks are forged from a special Swedish steel for axes, and the blades are tempered and annealed to the right toughness. The handles are made of 1st quality hickory and the axeheads are oiled and provided with a grain-leather sheath.
What you see is what you get. No grinding, sanding or cover ups are needed as the smiths take care, and do the right forging from the beginning. When a Gransfors Bruks smith is satisfied with his work and has accepted his axe, he marks the head with his initials beside the company's crown label.
Each axe comes with "the Axe Book". This little book is crammed with information on the company, their integrity and craftsmanship, their history, information on the products they carry, and information on proper uses and care of their products.
Gransfors Swedish Broad Axe, model 1900Old Swedish logging techniques for squaring logs and structural timbers inspired this axe. It has sufficient space between the blade's beard and the handle for the user's fingers. The broad ax has a 7" face and a 20" hickory handle, and the head weights 3lbs.
While at Plymouth Plantation we had the wonderful opportunity to see the living history pilgrim and his broad axe in action. With a few swift blows he had the whole length of the log neatly squared. It was truely amazing to see what an experienced man and his fine tool could accomplish.
By the way, you can shape your logs with a chain saw or electrical equipment, but then you will not have the same nice surface as you will having used a broad axe.On the 1900 Model Broad Axe the handle can be straight, angled to the right or angled to the left. With angled handles, the handle and your hands remain at a distance from the timber, there-by minimizing the risk of injury. Gransfors bends the poll and the eye 10° to the left or right. When Gransfors Bruks 1900 Model Broad Ax is used as a carving axe it often has an angled handle. When the Gransfors Bruks 1900 Model Broad Axe is used as a Chopping Broad Axe the handle is usually attached straight.
Gransfors 1900 Model Broad Axe can be sharpened either on both sides, "Double-Sided sharpened", or only one side, "Single-Sided Sharpened" (Scissors-Sharpened).
