Here is how Gransfors Bruk describe the Gransfors Bruk FROE:
“used to split wood very finely, for example when making shingles for a roof. Wood to be split is placed under the edge, the user steadies the tool with one hand on the vertical handle and strikes the blade with a mallet using the other hand. A removeable handle makes it easier to transport.”
For greenwoodworking, the Gransfors Bruk FROE is a great tool to have in the tool kit. It’s a substantial tool, tough enough for all splitting jobs.
Whilst not a cutting tool, starting a split is so much easier with a sharp edge. The Gransfors Bruk FROE comes with a very sharp edge from new.
The blade’s long gentle bevels contribute to good control when used with a cleaving brake.
The hickory handle is lightly oiled and waxed and 44 cm (17”) long. A taper to the blades eye ensures that when the back of the blade is struck with a mallet the handle becomes tighter.
This is a tough froe, suitable for tough work.
Cutting edge: approx. 30 cm (12″).
Have a look at our SHEATH Gransfors Bruk Froe. Because this tool comes with such a sharp edge, one of these is very sensible.
