Although most splitting axes generally look similar, it's the finer details of the Gransfors Bruks Splitting Axe that sets it apart from the rest. Each axe is forged by hand in Sweden and bears a stamp of the individual blacksmith's initials.
The head has a 3" face and weighs 3.5 lbs. The handle is 20" long and made of hickory wood that is textured for confident grip with or without gloves. Another fine details is the inclusion of a steel sheath where the handle meets the axe head - this reduces damage to the handle when the axe is driven through a log.
Pair this up with a good saw and you'll have all the necessary tools to make some great firewood.
