Gransfors Bruk Axes have a legacy going back more than 100 years. They are ideal companions for a wide range of outdoor pursuits. This is the axe you’ll use for many years and may even become an heirloom piece in your family.

Each Gransfors Bruk Axe is hand-forged in Sweden and is stamped with the smith’s initials. All of their axes come with a 20-year guarantee. An incredible amount of care and attention to quality goes into each one of these axes. They come pre-sharpened with a razor-sharp edge and protected by a tanned leather sheath. The hardened steel holds its edge under serious use.

We carry four different models of Gransfors Bruk Axes and each one fits a different niche to cover a wide range of uses. Whether you keep it at home, at the cabin, in your truck or around camp, you’ll certainly appreciate the craftsmanship and quality that goes into these axes.

Here’s the lineup from largest to smallest:

Scandanavian Forest Axe #430

This is the largest Gransfors Bruk Axe that we carry. The Scandanavian Forest Axe is built with a 2-pound head and a 25-inch handle. It’s ideal for felling small trees, limbing, splitting kindling or small firewood for your wood stove at camp or at home. This is a great, all-purpose axe. You can order yours here.


Small Forest Axe #420

The Small Forest Axe is an excellent compact tool that’s great for field use. It has a 2-pound head and a 19-inch handle. This gives it more power than a hatchet, while still being able to slide it into a backpack or keep it tucked away under a truck seat. If you’re looking for a more compact axe that can still handle tough work when needed, this is a great option. Your can order the Small Forest Axe here.

Hunter’s Axe #418

The aptly named Hunter’s Axe is ready to go wherever your hunting adventures take you. With a 2-pound head and an 18.5-inch handle, this compact axe is easily packable but still wields more power than a hatchet. Perhaps the most unique feature of the Hunter’s Axe is the rounded ‘flay poll’, a polished back that can be used for removing the hide from a big game animal. Learn more and order yours here.

Wildlife Hatchet #415

The Wildlife Hatchet is your go-anywhere camp companion. It’s built with a 1-pound head and a 13.5-inch handle. At this size, you can pack it on any adventure. But the handle still carries enough length and power to take on surprisingly big tasks. From pounding in tent stakes to splitting kindling for your wood stove, you’ll never want to be at camp without it. You can order your wildlife hatchet here.
