A small axe for the outdoors.
- well made
- perfect size
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.
Here's what other sites are saying:
Same size as the Gransfors Bruks Hunter's Axe, but a more traditional pattern and poll. The blade is thin. 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. Practical for splitting small sticks for the fire or cutting small-diameter limbwood for starter fuel in a fireplace. The axe has a 3 1/4" face and a 19" hickory handle and the head weighs 1 1/2 lb. It comes with a grain-leather sheath.
