A traditional scouting and camping axe that's compact and powerful.
The Gransfors Wildlife Hatchet has a long handle for a hatchet so you get the extra power to fell trees, chop down fairly large branches and split logs for the campfire. The small size allows this axe to easily fit into any pack and the shape of the sheath, which covers the edge and the top part of the poll, stops the axe head cutting into your backpack.
When it comes to the quality and feel of Gransfors axes, much depends on the experience and skill of the individual craftsman. Each axe is signed with the smith’s initials as a guarantee of quality.
