Gransfors Bruks' passion for axes is beyond the call of duty and indisputable.
Not only do they make high quality everyday axes for a range of specialised uses but also make a series of replica axes of Northern Europe.
The axe has developed over many thousands of years, and at Gransfors Bruks knowing about the culture and social history of the axe provides them with a better underatanding of the design and functions of axes used today.
Mostly the axes in this section are forged by specialist axesmith Paul Alford.
The axes in this series are based on original axes from the iron age and the viking age. The design and final shaping is adapted so that it corresponds as far as possible to the original. These replicas not only resemble the original as closely as possible but also fulfill the demands of quality expected of a utility tool today, probably of better quality than the originals ever were.
The whole range of Ancient Axes is difficult to keep in stock due to to their specialised nature but we can order any axe from Gransfors Bruks. Be prepared for a lengthy wait!
Each axe comes with a copy of Gransfors Bruks Axe Book and 'Ancient Northern European Axes'.
