Gränsfors Bruk has committed over 100 years to manufacturing and developing axes. Every axe is specifically designed to meet a particular function, with a tireless focus on high quality and area of use. A considerable amount of effort has also been put into producing axes with sound green credentials, avoiding any unnecessary consumption of natural resources.
Gränsfors Bruk’s axes are divided into five different categories, based on their specific areas of use. The five categories are: Forest Axes, Splitting Axes, Log-building and Carpentry Tools, Double Bit Axes and Ancient Axes.
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 versatility. Typically, one blade was sharpened to a finely honed, narrow "felling edge", while the second blade was ground slightly blunter, and used on 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". Throwing Axe has a 29.5" straight hickory handle with swell-knob.
They come with two grain-leather sheaths.
