GRANSFORS BRUK HOPE TO BE FORGING THIS ADZE AGAIN EARLY IN 2020
BY ALL MEANS SIGN UP FOR AN EMAIL ALERT BELOW FOR WHEN THEY DO RETURN TO STOCK BUT IT MAY BE SOME TIME!
Large doubly curved adze from renowned Swedish axe makers Gransfors Bruk.
Described by Gransfors Bruk as an ancient replica, but be under no illusion this is a serious tool, capable of some real graft.
Originally designed to carve out wooden gutters (some fantastic examples on buildings at Maihaugen Museum, Lillehamer, Norway) and other hollowing-out work.
Its main use today tends to be to for the hollowing out of large wooden bowls, large sculptural works and chair seats.
The cutting edge from corner to corner is 90mm (3 1/2") long with a large sweep, from cutting edge to poll is 210mm (8 1/4").
The single external bevel is ground to about 30 degrees and relatively straight forward to sharpen. Use a hard slipstone to remove the burr from inside of cutting edge.
The gently curved American hickory handle is 635m (25") long. Weight including handle is 1.8 kgs (2.5lbs).
Comes with a grain leather sheath, the Gransfors Bruk Axe Book and a 20 year forging guarantee.
