The Gransfors Bruk SMALL HATCHET is a very light, compact axe with a narrow blade.
Developed by former Gransfors Bruk axesmith Lennart Pettersson (LP). As a fisherman he wanted a small axe that could top and tail his catch and use the poll like a ‘priest’. However, this little axe is suitable for a much wider range of work.
You could almost treat this axe like a favorite knife, take it almost anywhere with you (well maybe not in your flight hand luggage!).
Perfect for carving small spoon blanks.
This axe is a little more expensive than some of the larger axes, this is because it’s more difficult to forge and get right.
To forge the hole in the head of a small axe requires great craftsmanship.
Total weight 12oz, the cutting edge is 65mm (2 1/2″) long, the American hickory handle is 260mm (10″) long.
Forged of high carbon Swedish steel and tempered to a hardness of 57 Rockwell.
Comes with a grain leather sheath, the Gransfors Bruk Axe Book and a twenty year forging guarantee.
The head of the Gransfors Bruk SMALL HATCHET is the basis of the Gransfors Bruk SMALL CARVING HATCHET
