The Gransfors Bruk Small Forest Axe is a great addition to my light car camp and canoe camp kits. I had admired the Bruk axes for some time and always thought I would like to have one. They have a very good reputation and are a thing of beauty to look at. I finally settled on the Small Forest Axe as my choice for style and size. It fits between other axes I already own, a 1.5lb hand axe and a 2.75lb "boys axe". I was looking for an axe I could process arm sized wood with as well as for roughing… Full review
Definitely a minimalist hatchet. I'd recommend a bigger one for most real hatchet work, or a quality large knife instead. I'm generally a fan of large knives for wilderness tasks.

A small axe for the outdoors. At around 32 ounces and 19 inches long, this is a great small axe for hiking and the outdoors. It is a handmade Swedish axe that has seen some serious use in the two years I've owned it, and it still looks brand new. It came shaving sharp and is a treat to use and admire. It's the kind of tool you pass down to your children. It comes with an exqusite leather sheath and a book on how to use an axe called The Axe Book. Full review
Gränsfors Bruk has been handcrafting axes in Sweden since 1902.
