A slightly belated but very big thank you for the knife roll. It arrived perfectly on time and was perfect.
The latest new model to come out of the renowned Swedish axe makers 'Ancient Axe' forge.
This axe has been individually hand forged by talented Gransfors Bruks axesmith Paul Alford.
This may be an 'ancient axe' but will perform exceptionally and uniquely as a lightweight carving axe.
Space behind the blade for the fingers gets force directly behind the cutting edge when doing fine work.
The four lugs above and below the eye give a very firm fix to the handle.
The handle curves backwards toward the small swell knob producing a well balanced feel and and makes a slicing action easy to induce.
A surprisingly light axe at 425 grams (1 lbs), the 100mm (4") gently curved cutting edge is ground to a relatively fine 25 degrees.
The handle is 330mm (13") long and made from American hickory.
Comes with a copy of the Gransfors Bruks Axe Book, a copy of Ancient Northern European Axes and a twenty year forging guarantee.
Comes not only with a Gransfors replica leather sheath but also with a unique WOODSMITH stitched thick leather sheath which is far safer and more practical.
One of the most beautiful axes available.
