Hand carved Gransfors Swedish Carving Axe

Hand carved Gransfors Swedish Carving Axe


Gränsfors Bruks Swedish carving axe - Great condition, could use a slight sharpen up. I carved a couple blanks with this before boxing it up. I carved this handle years ago as the stock one had some fatal flaws from the factory. Tried and true, it's on there and works well. Red and blue milk paint was what I was into at the time. But the helve can easily be sawed off so you could install your own. Replacements can be found online, or if you're like me.. hit the woods and make your own!

This axe is used where efficient production and a rough-hewn texture are your goals. This axe has a wide 4-1/2 inch curved edge, carried well above the eye. The textured handle is 14 inches long; head weighs 2 lbs.

ord on the street says this axe has been virtually impossible to find in stock anywhere for over six months.

The standard version of the carving axe is the double bevel but has been modified to be a bit closer to a right handed asymmetrical grind. Stock it would have full bevels ground on both sides of the cutting edge and should be able to handle the vast majority of axe carving tasks. If you've never used a carving axe or don't know what to get, this is the carving axe for you.
