Large Splitting Axe Long handle

{Description}

The Axe can be used for medium-sized firewood. It is forged and ground to a concave, quite thin blade at the bit. The Axe cuts quickly and easily into the wood and then effectively splits it as the broader section pushes apart the wood. The handle has a protective steel collar below the Axe head and circular grooves towards the end for an extra firm grip. Splitting Axes should not be used for striking a wedge or as a wedge. Only the Splitting Maul is designed for this.

{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.
