Axes

A range of more than 60 axes from renowned Swedish makers:

Gransfors Bruk, Wetterlings, Svante Djarv and Hans Karlsson. 

All directly imported from the makers.

We first visited the Gransfors Bruk works more 12 years ago where we met up with the CEO at the time Gabriel Branby and saw two of their axesmiths working, Lennart Pettersson (LP) who forges many different types of axes, and Mattias Mattsson who mainly specialises in the Wildlife Hatchet and its variants.  All Gransfors Bruk axes are stamped with the initials of the person who forged the head, so only if it is perfect will it leave the forge. All Gransfors Bruk products are guaranteed against forging faults for 20 years. Each axe comes with a grain leather sheath and the famous Axe Book.

Following our visit in August 2011 to Swedish axe makers Wetterlings, we were delighted to be become one of the few UK direct importers of axes and forestry tools from the oldest axe factory in Sweden. Wetterlings are so confident that the axes they make are efficient and durable  that each one comes with a 20 year forging guarantee.

Svante Djarv and Hans Karlsson are specialist tool makers who include a small selection of axes in their portfolios, hand made in relatively small numbers.

Should you lose or damage your leather sheath we stock genuine replacements for most of the axes we stock.  Also if you break a handle, we now stock replacements for most Gransfors Bruk and Wetterlings axes.
