Gränsfors Forest Axes are made to be used in the forest for everything from felling large trees to limbing small logs. The distinguishing feature of Forest Axes is a long, rounded edge, with a flat elongated axe head. Forest Axes are specially designed to cut across the grain of the wood fibres, for example when felling and limbing, in contrast to log splitting, where the axe goes along the grain.

 

A bestseller! The most popular axe from Gransfors - powerful and versatile, but convenient to carry and use. With a handle long enough to allow powerful chopping, but short enough to fit comfortably into your backpack, car boot or boat, it’s easy to see why this is the most popular axe.

A snedder's delight! A true forester’s axe, lightweight for prolonged use, but powerful enough to limb a felled tree safely, and ecologically. The thin, curved bit is sharpened to make it particularly suitable for cutting branches of fresh, resinous timber, such as spruce or pine.

  • Head weight 2lb / 0.91kg
  • Handle length 25” / 635mm

Felling Axes

A powerful thing of beauty! Developed by Gransfors, in conjunction with axe collector Lawrence Lyford and boat builder Geoffrey Burke, this axe is great for felling, if you like to do it old school! It’s also great for hewing, especially for notching and chipping. There is one type of head, but 3 handles to choose from.
