A very popular axe for camping and bushcraft, the Small Forest Axe by Gransfors Bruks is well suited to splitting sticks for the campfire and performing many more tasks. Hand forged in Sweden by experienced blacksmiths, the axe comes stamped with the individual blacksmiths initials and is shaving sharp straight out of the sheath.
The Gransfors Bruk Small Forest Axe is the same size as the Hunter's Axe but has a more traditional pattern and poll. The blade is thin and will bite under its own weight. 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 Small Forest Axe has proved very popular and is one of the most frequently recommended axes for bushcraft and camping tasks. Length: 49 cm Weight: 0.9 kg
