ABOUT GRANSFORS BRUK
For more than 100 years, Gränsfors Bruk has built up a business around the production of hand-forged axes and axe knowledge. With a main focus on quality and environmental responsibility.
We are often asked about what type of axe to choose. When selecting your axe, it becomes crucial to determine its intended purpose. Are you planning to use it for chopping wood in the forest or constructing a log house?
The main difference between axes is the edge. Most commonly, the edge faces the direction of travel, parallel with the handle. There are also axes where the edge is perpendicular, although these are less common. Examples include Gränsfors Bruk’s Straight Adzes and Gutter Adzes.
A typical chopper is Gränsfors Bruk’s Splitting Axe, which has quite a thin edge but a much broader and thicker poll. This helps to split the wood apart. A prime example of a carving axe is Gränsfors Bruk’s Carpenter’s Axe. This has a long, thin and straight edge with a straight, pointed bevel face and a narrower poll, which makes it perfect for carving. The Carpenter’s Axe is not suitable for heavier work such as tree felling and log splitting. The pointed angle of the blade is not designed for that.
In today’s world, people primarily use axes as tools, and they can be categorized into three main groups: Forest Axes, Splitting Axes, and Log-building Axes.
