**Axe is currently not available for purchase**

The Gransfors Bruks Scandinavian Forest Axe, 430 is a more professional axe for those who want to limb a felled tree in the traditional way. The Gransfors Bruks Scandinavian Forest Axe, 430 is forged to a thin, curved a bit and sharpened to make it suitable for cutting branches in fresh, resinous wood, spruce or pine. The long handle of the Gransfors Bruks Scandinavian Forest Axe, 430 gives extra strength and power to the cut. The Gransfors Bruks Scandinavian Forest Axe, 430 has a 3 1/2" face and a 25" hickory handle and the head weighs 2 lb. The Gransfors Bruks Scandinavian Forest Axe, 430 comes with a grain leather sheath.
Old traditions are adapted to today's demand. Most of the handles of Gransfors Bruks axes have a unique ergonomic design which gives a steady grip around the handle. All Gransfors Bruks handles are made of selected high quality (prima) American hickory. Fiberglass handles are stronger than hickory handles but Gransfors Bruks believes that wooden handles are more ecological. Gransfors Bruks axe handles are soaked in hot linseed oil and dripped dry. They are then covered with beeswax to help keep the dirt off.
Gransfors Axes are forged by very professional smiths. The proof of this professionalism is that they are able to forge axes with such precision that no supplementary work, to hide mistakes in the forging, is needed.
At Gransfors Bruks the forging craft is allowed to take its time. The smiths do not work by the piece. They take care and do the right forging from the beginning. There is no need to stone or grind or smooth or paint the axes in order to hide or eliminate imperfections in the forging.
A smith at Gransfors Bruks has nothing to hide and he is proud of his professional standards. When he is satisfied with his work and has accepted his axe, he marks the head with his initials beside the company's crown label:

In 1990 Gransfors Bruks' Axes were awarded a prize in "Ecological Design" from The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation in cooperation with The Swedish Society of Crafts and Design. In 1995 Gransfors Bruks received another award from The Swedish Society of Crafts and Design for the "Hunter's Axe".

  1. Scandanavian Forest Axe 430

    Posted by on

    Having now acquired the 430 and have used the small forest axe (GB420) for 5 years now. The 430 gives me the extra weight for chopping without it becoming unmanageable. I have tried using an American axe with a three and a half pound head, but I don't have sufficient strength and mass as counter weight to counter it for controlled chopping. I'm 5' 11" and weigh 148 lb; the 430 is a good match for my strength and mass and still can chop down a tree more efficiently than I could with the 420. The 420 is excellent for small (less than 4 inch diamater) and limbing, but for larger trees, the 420 is an exercise in patience and a lot of swings to bring down a tree. Aside from this, the quality I expected from Granfors Burks is there and completely satisified. I'd recommend this axe to anyone needing a lighter axe. The waiting period was 5 months; I wasn't in a hurry, and it's worth the wait. I'm going to have a good spring cleaning up old trees on my land.
