Hand Hatchet

Regular price $259.00 AUD $0.00 AUD


A lightweight Axe ideal for scouting and camping. Like all Gransfors Bruk Forest Axes, the head is specially designed to cut across the grain of the wood fibres (in contrast to the Gransfors Bruk Splitting Axes which are specially designed to cut along the grain of the wood fibres). The hatchet has a short stocky handle relative to the size of its head. The dimensions of the Axe provides purchase and control. The Axe is excellent for felling small trees and limbing and splitting smaller branches for firewood.

{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.
