The Gränsfors Small Forest Axe has a larger head and a longer handle than the Wildlife Hatchet and therefore provides more chopping power. However, it is still small enough to fit into a rucksack. The Small Forest Axe is excellent for felling trees and limbing. 

Each Gransfors Axe head is hand-forged from high quality Swedish steel that is honed, tempered & annealed to the perfect hardness by the experienced Gränfors Bruk Swedish Smiths who stamp their initials on the head. Each Gransfors axe is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece you'll treasure for years to come.

Great Light weight little axe. Not as sharp as I would have expected in this price range.

best little axe

I was given this axe 2 years ago and have used it heavily since felling and limbing 6-8" trees, mostly softwood. I like it enough I'm buying the slightly larger version of the same. I've been very impressed with the durability of its edge and the quality of the handle. The handle shows minor wear, but hasn't split, splintered or dented at all - something about quality of the hickory and the keel shape the handle has right behind the bit, maybe. The steel is good - hard for an axe but not so hard it chips easily. Don't even try to sharpen it with a cheap file, it won't work. For me and what I'm cutting it's been the right trade-off of hard to sharpen but holds a sharp edge longer. The 19" handle lets it do MUCH more than a hatchet can and lets me work in tight growth and thickets with it, tucks into the belt easily too. The sheath works well and is easy to loose, maybe I should tie flagging to it. This axe has taken heavy use and my hundreds of small mistakes in stride so far, and if I keep on treating it right, I'm sure it will go right on past the 20 year mark.

I love the 420 Small Forest Axe I ordered from you. It arrived razor sharp and had a great looking handle. It arrived quickly and was well packed.
