{Description}

The Axe is used for woodworking and shaping wood. The Axe has a relatively long, curved cutting edge which comes ground on both sides as standard. The Axe is also available with the edge ground specifically for right-handed or left-handed carving. Please contact us to enquire about the latter. The edge grinded left-hand side has a short bevel face on the right side of the edge, if the Axe is held in the right hand with the handle down and head up. The left side of the edge has a longer, slightly concave bevel face, which provides excellent support when carving. A right-handed person would normally use the Axe grinded on the left-hand side. The edge grinded right-hand side has a short bevel face on the left side of the edge, if the Axe is held in the left hand with the handle down and head up. The right side of the edge has a longer, slightly concave bevel face, which provides excellent support when carving. A left-handed person would normally use the Axe grinded on the right-hand side. The handle has an uneven surface, giving good friction for a firm grip. The Axe is also available with a carved handle, giving even better grip and control.

{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.
