Gransfors Bruks Small Forest Axe. The Gransfors Bruks Small Forest Axe has long been heralded by Bushcrafters as "the number one axe choice for Bushcraft".  The Gransfors model 420 Small Forest Axe is an extremely popular axe and an ideal all-round model. This small axe is the same size as the Hunters Axe but a more traditional pattern and poll, or butt. The handle is long enough to allow powerful chopping but not too long so it will fit into a rucksack, the back of a car, or a boat. The axe has a 3 1/4" face and a 19" hickory handle and the head weighs 1 lb. It comes with a grain-leather sheath. A 36 page Axe book is included with each purchase. 20 Year Guarantee.

When it comes to axe enthusiasts, the Swedes are the world's greatest, and Gransfors Bruks is one of their finest forges. Each axe is carefully forged by an experienced smith who shows his pride in his work by stamping his initials on the head next to the company logo and each smith is introduced in the 36 page booklet that accompanies every Gransfors Bruks axe. After forging, each blade is ground to a 25 degree bevel and honed to a razor edge. Each axe is fitted with a tight-grained hickory handle and provided with a grain-leather sheath with snap fastener.

Best axe for the best price . This axe lives up to the reviews and for me , it was worth every penny . Hard to describe in words but once you pick this axe up, you just know your handling a really well made axe. The balance is super, this axe was made to work hard and get on going! Nice apple seed grind polished to a razor edge . Very happy with this purchase!
