Current Stock Update

Hultafors Updates:
Unfortunately big delays still regarding most premium Hultafors axes - We will not see good stock no until June-August.
The Wetterhall double-bit throwing axe will not be forged until end of this year - so that most likely means we will unfortunately not see any until next year.
The Aby Forest axes (Very limited no), ARVIKA axes and more Tasmanian Felling axes will not arrive until first week of July.
More available Aby Forest axes in August and October.
840601 Wood Chopper's Maul 2.5 and 840620 Splitting wedge - Has been discontinued and back-orders cancelled by the forge for at least the rest of this year.
Agdor Yankee 0.8 & 1.0 & Agdor Norweegian 0.85 & Agdor Hatchet 0.8 - Will be completely discontinued after the forge back-order logs are cleared. 
(But we have some in stock and/or more on order and on the way - so we should be good for most part of this year regarding these models).
 Gransfors Update:
418 Hunters Axe- Will not be forged again until approx August (Due to complete renovations of one of the forging hammers) - So more stock will not arrive to 
us until approx October-November.
460 Splitting Wedge - Will unfortunately not become available from us again until approx October.
473-R, 474-R & 475-R - Should become available from us again sometime in July/August (Delays due to production delays regarding hand-carved handles).
490-1 & 490-2 Earliest we could see some of these models is October-November (GB has only planned one forging session this year -  in August-September).
We will not have any spare stock of 425 Outdoor Axes until next delivery (Mid-May)

  • The handle on Gränsfors Bruk’s axes was designed by Hans Erik Persson. Old traditions have been embraced and adapted to the demands of today’s users. The ergonomic shape provides a steady, comfortable grip on the handle, even at arm’s length. Gränsfors Bruk’s handle is made from hickory, the perfect wood because it is both strong and flexible, with long, parallel fibres. This increases the life of the handle and thus helps reduce consumption of nature’s resources. 

The wood is dried before turning. This is so that the wood will not dry out any further and shrink, once the axe head has been set on the handle. One of the most common causes of an axe head coming loose from its handle is that a green, undried handle has been used, which then dries out, shrinks and comes loose.

In order to further improve the quality of the handle, it is soaked in hot linseed oil. The handle is then treated with beeswax to make it more resistant to dirt and water.
