Log-Building and Carpentry Tools

      48u0565s2.jpg  

Gränsfors Log-building and Carpentry Tools have been specially developed for use in log house building, carpentry and wood sculpting. These axes and tools have been designed in collaboration with expert woodsmen and carpenters.

Traditional tools have provided a template for the models that Gränsfors Bruk now produces, but they have been modified and developed in partnership with specialists and professionals to meet the demands of today’s users. Each type of axe is designed for a specific function, hence the considerable variation in axe head design, grind and handles.
