Double-bit Working Axe / Throwing Axe

Different models of double-bit axes have been popular in the US since the last quarter of the 19th century because of its balanced feel and verysatility. Typically, one blade was sharpened to a finely honed, narrow "felling edge", while the second blade was ground slightly blunter, and used or knots and cutting near the ground where a finely sharpened blade was more likely to be damaged. Today the double-bit axe is used as a Working Axe or as a Throwing Axe for timber sports.

The head weighs 3lb and the face of the bits are about 6". The only difference between our working axe and throwing is is the handle. The throwing axe has a 29" straight hickory handle and the Working Axe has a 31" or a 35" straight hickory handle with swell-knob at the end. They come with two grain-leather sheaths.


American Felling Axe

35" curved handle
31" curved handle

Carpenter's Axe


This axe has a straight edge and thin blade with low angle of the bevel face, suited for work in dry wood. The forged inward curve from the heel to the lip of the head permits your hand to grip almost straight above the center of the edge. This, and the long straight cutting edge, gives rigidity, stability, and control when cutting. Functions like a good heavy knife. The axe poll is ground and can be used as a hammer.

The head weighs 1 1/2 lb and has a 3 1/2" face. The axe has an 18" hickory handle and a grain-leather sheath.


Swedish Carving Axe

A chop axe for hewing bowls and other wooden objects, artistic wood carving and architectural work. The characteristic curved shape of the cutting edge, carried well above the head's eye, the position of the edge in proportion to he handle, the rather thick bit and the big angle of the wide beveled face makes this axe a good carving tool. You "cut on the beveled face" with curved movements. This new axe pattern, based on old Swedish carving techniques, was developed by Wille Sundqvist, master craftsman and author of "Swedish Carving Techniques" in cooperation with craftman adviser Onni Linnanheimo. The handle is "rugged" to give a good grip.

The axe has a 4 1/3" face and a 14" hickory handle and the head weighs 2 lb. It comes with a grain-leather sheath

Mini Hatchet

Developed by Lennart Pettersson (LP) at Gränsfors Bruks in Sweden. Lennart, axe smith, knife smith, back-packer and fisherman has created a little hatchet which can be used as an axe and a knife. The poll, slightly rounded, functions like a "priest".
The roots of Gränsfors Mini Belt Hatchet go back many thousand years. In the old days in Europe it was common to carry a belt axe which could be used as a knife and an axe, a valuable tool and a weapon. A nice belt axe was also a symbol of status. In the 16th and 17th century, the French began trading axes with the American Indians. The small Belt Axe, light and narrow, become the "trade axe" and was transformed into the tomahawk. But Gränsfors Mini Belt Hatchet is neither a tomahawk nor a scaled down axe. It is a functional new design by Lennart Pettersson. It is hand forged of high carbon Swedish steel and tempered at the bit to a hardness of 57 Rockwell C. To forge a small axe with the hole in the head requires great craftsman skill. T
his little hatchet has a 2½ inches cut-ting edge, a 10 inches hickory handle and weighs only about 12 oz. The hatchet comes with a grain-leather sheath.


Hand Hatchet

Hand Hatchet (Kubben) uses the head of the Wildlife Hatchet, but with a much shorter handle made from hickory. This little hand hatchet can be used for heavy work, ideal for splitting kindling. The Gransfors Hand Hachet is great for packing in a rucksack while camping or driving up to the mountains for a bonfire. The Hand Hatchet is 9.5 inches long, with a total weight of 23 ounces. It comes with a leather sheath.


Hunter's Axe

Specially made for hunter. The poll is forged thinner than normal and gently rounded and burnished to a Flay Poll to be used when skinning an animal. You pull the hide with one hand at the same time you hit with the Flay Poll of the axe between the hide and the flesh; and stroke by stroke the hide comes off. The axe is good for chopping, in wood as well as meat. The grip of the handle has circular grooves which gives a steady grip even if your hands are wet or sticky. This axe has received, as the first and only axe in Sweden, a design award from The Swedish Society of Crafts and Design.
