Carpenter's Axe
Regular price $239.00 AUD $0.00 AUD

{Description}

The Axe has a long, thin and straight edge with a straight bevel face and a narrower poll, giving an even cutting surface for great carving. The forged inward curve from the heel to the lip of the head allows your hand to grip almost straight above the centre of the cutting edge, which is important when your work requires stability and precision. The handle is straight to suit all grips. Its flat, straight shape makes this Axe suitable for work in dry wood.

{Information}Care Instructions

Axes should be kept in a dry place, but not so dry or warm that the handle risks shrinking in the axe head. Make sure that the axe head and sheath are not wet when you put on the sheath. Oil the axe head before the axe is put away for some time. An un-oiled axe head may rust. We recommend oiling the head with camellia oil. All axes from Gransfors Bruk come with properly dried handles. Handles need to be maintained. Oil handles for a protective coat against heat and water. Unoiled handles may cause the handle to crack and weaken. We recommend oiling the handle with boiled linseed oil. Frequency depends on conditions. At the very least oil the handle once a year. Please contact us if a replacement handle or sheath is required.
