Gransfors Bruks Scandinavian Forest Axe Review

Gransfors Bruks Scandinavian Forest Axe is a more professional axe, ideal for felling larger trees and for limbing a felled tree.

The Gransfors Bruks Forest axe is forged to a curved bit, making it suitable for cutting into fresh, resinous wood such as spruce or pine. The long handle also gives more power to the cut. It is the finest hand made Scandinavian Forest Axe in the world that still comes with a 20 year warranty!

Long handle also gives more power to the cut.

The axe is everything you would expect from a Gransfors Bruks axe. The alignment and finish are perfect. It comes with a nice leather sheath. Everything seems to have been well thought out and checked before the axe was put on the market.

The Scandinavian Forest Axe is a serious tool. It has a much more substantial feel than the Small Forest Axe, although it is still light enough to be carried in a backpack or used with one hand when carving. This size axe however is towards the high end of what I would consider carrying in a backpack over an extended distance.

The Forest Axe is for those who want to limb a felled tree in a traditional way. The axe is forged to a thin, curved bit and sharpened to make it suitable for cutting branches in fresh, resinous, spruce or pine wood. The long handle of the Scandinavian Forest Axe gives extra strength and power to the cut.

Worth the money

I’ve shopped around for a while looking at this axe and that axe. At one point, I convinced myself that a Big Box brand would be good enough–because that’s all I could afford. However, I am extremely grateful that I waited to make a purchase. This axe is fantastic! It arrived extremely sharp, and made quick work of the 5″ poplar sapling. I haven’t had this long, but I expect this will do more than I could imagine.

I would recommend this product to anyone looking to own a legacy …

This is one fine axe, I was able to shave hairs from my arm right out of the box. One must be careful putting the leather cover back on the blade, as to not accidentally cut through it as it it fully seated. Once seated, it is perfectly safe. Can’t wait to go camping with it!

Very nice!

I’d pondered the idea of the GB and Wetterlings axes and hatchets for a few years before being able to afford them. I initially chose the GB over the Wetterlings based on my research, which indicated the more expensive GB axes and hatchets are better finished than the Wetterlings. I never got the chance to handle the Wetterlings in person before purchasing to compare the two side by side. I handled the GB in person before pulling the trigger and decided it was worth the price.
