Gränsfors Bruk Hand Hatchet
The Gränsfors Hand Hatchet is a beautifully balanced short handled axe that's great for carving and camping adventures in the bush.
The axe has the same head as the longer handled Wildlife Hatchet, so despite its short length it still has the weight to slice through wood with ease.
Like all Gränsfors axes it is hand forged in Sweden using superb quality carbon steel and it comes really sharp and ready to carve.
The axe is great for camping trips too. It's small enough to pack in a backpack, and capable of lopping off branches and splitting small logs for the campfire.
It comes with a great quality leather sheath and a copy of the Gränsfors Axe Book which has lots of info about their axes and how they are made.
A great little carver.
Note: the handle on the hand hatchet is made intentionally rough to increase grip.
