{Description}

The Axe is a specialist Axe designed for hewing sills and notches in joints. The Axe has a long, narrow head, making it easier to work on large logs. The shape enables you to hew a long way down into the notch, where otherwise you would have to use a chisel. With a little practice, the Mortise Axe makes the job faster and more efficient.

{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.
