Gränsfors Bruk Wildlife Hatchet (415)
415 Gransfors Bruks Wildlife Hatchet Axe
The Gränsfors Wildlife Hatchet is a traditional scouting and camping axe, with the same head as the Hand Hatchet but on a longer handle. This longer handle lends the axe more power, not least when felling trees. Practical for carrying in your rucksack when you need a small axe with plenty of power. The axe is capable of lopping off quite large branches or splitting small logs for the campfire. The shape of the sheath, which covers the edge and the top part of the poll, stops the axe head cutting into your rucksack.

Perfect. Skin a steer, split some kindling, wittle. Whatever.This will do it.
Superb balance and quality, fit and finish is not bad too. This small axe only weights around 600g, the slim axe head makes chopping wood quick and easy, cutting edge is extremely sharp unlike most of the mass-produced axes out there. I particularly like the way they put the head and handle together, they use a wooden wedge and a steel wedge to further tighten the handle head which helps to make sure the axe head will probably never become loose. Gransfors Bruks is one of the very few traditional axe makers in Sweden, their axes are certainly not cheap but in my opinion you get what you pay for.
