430 Gransfors Bruks Scandinavian Forest Axe
The Gränsfors Burk Scandinavian Forest Axe is a more professional axe, ideal for felling larger trees and for limbing a felled tree. The axe is forged to a curved bit, making it suitable for cutting into fresh, resinous wood such as spruce or pine. The long handle also gives more power to the cut.

Bought Axe for my hubby’s bday gift beautifully made
Beautiful axe. It's handle is great, it feels much more safer than the small options. Bought a 3 axes from here, ALL of them were perfect. This one would be the one to pick of all the GFB. It's far better than the smaller ones, chops better, swings better. I may have to sell one of the others and get another.
Service from Dawn Mowers, Excellent. Received order in 8 days. Arrived boxed with booklet, Razor Sharp. Axe is sturdy, beautiful handle, nice leather axe head cover. Very impresed. Cheers. Doug
Compared to the American felling axe the bite is not far off, if you want something half the weight and need something that can swing in a lot less room this is the axe you should buy. The axe is like a half hachet half felling axe, you can almost use with one arm depending on you strength, the axe comes pre linseed oiled and sharp as a knife. The only down fall is its a little bit harder to fell a big tree but still very much possible. Where the axe excels is limbing big and small branches, perfect axe for camping and hiking.
