Here is how Gransfors describe this tool:
"The Gränsfors Froe is used to split wood very finely, for example when making shingles for a roof. The 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.The handle is removeable making it easier to transport."
The handle is a taper fit so when the back of the blade is struck with a mallet the handle becomes tighter.
Tough froe suitable for tough work.
Hickory handle lightly oiled and waxed.
Handle Length: 44 cm (17”)
Cutting edge: 30 cm (12").
Beautiful, hand stitched leather sheaths available
