Gransfors Bruk SMALL CARVING HATCHET is a beautiful small carving axe fitted with an exquisite carved handle.
Faceted carved handle improves balance, grip and control and therefore its usefulness as an axe for smaller craft work.
Lighter weight axe that will find many uses in greenwoodworking, particularly spoon carving.
Available in 3 different grinds:
- Double-sided Ground with equal bevels, suitable for right and left handed users. Equal bevels makes this the most generally useful axe especially when removing wood from slightly concave features, such as spoon blanks. Will more willingly go where you want it to go compared to Right or Left Ground Axes. For most people, equal bevels, a relatively thin bit and lighter weight will make this a good axe for small projects. Preparing spoon blanks and coat hook blanks is the type of work the Double-sided Ground Small Hatchet will excel at.
- Right Ground is a handed axe suitable only for right-handed users. Asymmetric bevels, short on the right, long on the left. Right Ground axes work in a slightly different way, they cut at a lower angle, ‘biting’ readily and work on straight or convex faces. They don’t come out of concave shapes well.
- Left Ground is a handed axe suitable only for left-handed users. Asymmetric bevels, short on the left, long on the right. Left Ground axes work in a slightly different way, they cut at a lower angle, ‘biting’ readily and work on straight or convex faces. They don’t come out of concave shapes well.
