Great axe and even better shipping turn around from this vendor. First time using them but can’t wait to find another excuse to buy something else from them!

Our son is super happy about it! Cutting logs for the fire is now possible! The old ax wouldn’t do it. He seems to really like the weight. Of course, the handmade factor is great - with the initials of the maker - Wow!

  • The "Large Splitting Axe with Collar Guard" is forged & ground to a concave with a thin, but very tough sharp blade at the bit. This special design helps the axe go fast into the wood, & then split efficiently when the thicker part of the axe pushes apart the wood. The 3" head face of the axe is made of the highest quality Swedish steel available. The axe is excellent for splitting larger round chunks of wood. It also has a steel collar guard for extra durability & sturdiness as well. The bottom grip of the 27" long hickory handle is roughened which gives a steady grip even when one's hands are wet or sticky. Also of important note, these splitting axes are not designed for pounding wedges! Only the "Splitting Maul" No. 450 is designed for this! Axe weighs 5-1/4 lb. & includes a grain leather sheath.

       Each axe head is hand-forged from special Swedish steel which is then honed, tempered, & annealed to the perfect hardness by the experienced Gränsfors Bruk Swedish smiths who stamp their initials on the head, creating a one-of-a-kind masterpiece you'll treasure for years to come.
