Some users have been experiencing a problem - the 'Add to basket' button yields an empty basket. This is an intermittent problem, and doesn't effect all users. If you do have this problem, please don't keep trying. The best thing to do is email me your requirement, so I can book the stock for you, then we can catch up on the phone. Apologies for any inconvenience. Tim

Important product news from Gransfors:

‘We have now made design changes on some products. The steel wedge on the top of the handle will be removed. The steel wedge works as an extra support for the wooden wedge that is used to fix the axe head to the handle. The reliability in process when attaching the handles has been improved, which means that the steel wedge is not necessary. Based on trials and experience we have now decided to remove the steel wedge on the products listed below. Since we continuously strive for not using more materials and components than necessary, without compromising on functionality, we have therefore decided to stop using steel wedge on:
413-Hand (Kubben) Hatchet
415-Wildlife Hatchet
473-R, RH, RV-Small Carving Hatchet (all variants)
474-R, RH, RV-Large Carving Hatchet (all variants)
475, -R, -RH, -RV-Large Carving Axe (all variants)
Naturally there will be a mixture of axes with and without steel wedge during the transition.

We are helped by getting swift feed-back if you discover that the performance of the axe is degraded.

Real and tough use of the product is what matters in the end.’

Greenwood Direct celebrates 10 years!

Greenwood Direct came into being in 2004. We're very proud to have achieved our 10th anniversary.
Since then, we've built many oak frames, including this one, our first, which was an office for Alistair Sawday Publishers, and sold thousands of axes. We've helped restore historic builings, and enhanced public and private environments alike with our beautiful pergolas and other oak strcutures.
We've faced many challenges over the decade, from planning complexities to the dreaded financial crash, but we believe we've emerged stronger than ever.
We're very much looking forward to the years ahead.
