Gransfors Bruks Axes

Gransfors 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 Carving Axe

Swedish Carving Axe

A chop axe for hewing bowls and other wooden objects, artistic wood carving and architectural work. The characteristic curved shape of the cutting edge, carried well above the head's eye, the position of the edge in proportion to the handle, the rather thick bit and the big angle of the wide beveled face makes this axe a good carving tool. You "cut on the beveled face" with curved movements. The handle is rugged to give a good grip. The axe has a 4 1/3" face and a 14" hickory handle. The head weighs 2lb.

Gransfors Carving Axe can be sharpened either on both sides, "Double-Sided sharpened", or only one side, "Single-Sided Sharpened" (Scissors-Sharpened).

Gransfors Bruks Broad Axe

Gransfors Swedish Broad Axe, model 1900

Old 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).

11th Century Broad Axe

Gransfors Bruks 11th Century Broad Axe

The Eleventh Century Broad Axe transports you back to the era of the Vikings. It is a hand forged replica of an actual 11th century axe, however, the general design probably originated many years before then. The original axe is on display at the Viking museum in Roskilde Denmark. Traditionally broad axes are used for woodworking such as squaring up timbers, and house or boat building.

The 11th Century Broad Axe is beveled on one edge for ease of making smooth cuts. Like all Gransfors axes it comes with an American hickory handle. Total length is 26", blade length is 14 1/2", and handle length is 19 1/2".

The Eleventh Century design works today, as well as in that bygone era, and it does so with a unique flare. The 11th Century Axe is exciting for re-enactors, living-history actors, and anyone with a fancy for the past, or those who love hands on woodworking.
