{Description}

A lightweight Axe ideal for hiking. 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). Despite its diminutive size, the axe is excellent for limbing and splitting smaller branches for firewood. The slightly rounded butt (also known as the poll) functions like a ?priest? for dispatching fish.

{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 Gr?nsfors 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.
