These axes have a large and heavy head that is forged and ground into a concave shape with a thin edge. Designed to chop along the grain of the wood fibres the edge goes quickly and easily into the wood and the broader section pushes the wood apart efficiently splitting it & helping to prevent the axe head from sticking in the wood.

All Gransfors Bruks Splitting axes are fitted with a metal collar to protect the handle which is grooved towards the end for an extra firm grip.
