Gransfors Bruks Large Swedish Carving Axe is a chop axe for hewing bowls and other wooden objects, artistic wood carving and architectural work.

The carving hatchet’s characteristic curved shape of the cutting edge, carried well above the head’s eye, the position of the edge in proportion to the handle, the rather thick bit and the big angle of the wide, beveled face make this axe a good carving tool.

You “cut on the beveled face” with curved movements. This new axe pattern, based on old Swedish carving techniques, was developed by Wille Sundqvist, master craftsman and author of “Swedish Carving Techniques” in cooperation with craftsman adviser Onni Linnanheimo. The handle is “rugged” to give a good grip.

The Large Carving Axe has a relatively long, curved cutting edge which is double-sided as standard. The axe is also available as a special order with the edge ground specifically for right-handed or left-handed carving. Right-handed persons normally use Large Carving Axe, Grinded left side, and Left-handed persons normally use Large Carving Axe, Grinded right side, while the longer slightly concave bevel face come near the wood and therefore provides excellent support when carving. The handle has an uneven surface, giving good friction for a firm grip.

The wood carving axe is also available as a special order with a carved handle, giving even better grip and control. This Axe has a 4-1/3 inch (11 cm) face, a 14 inch (36 cm) handle and a 2.2 lb (1 kg) head. All of the Gränsfors Axes come with the Axe Book and a 20-year guarantee. This Axe is also shipped with a leather sheath.
