Gransfors Bruks Large Splitting Axe Long Handle #445

The everyday splitting axe for wood rounds for taller people. Also preferred by tree surgeons that split rounds on the job without a chopping block

The Gransfors Bruks Large Splitting Axe is designed for splitting larger chunks of wood, or "rounds". Forged and ground to a concave, quite thin blade at the bit, this design helps the axe to go fast into the wood, and then efficiently split as the broader section pushes apart the wood.

The axe head is quite heavy with forged cheeks on both sides of the blade, "splitting wedge shaped crests" which power apart the grain of the wood. A Splitting Axe does not just have to slice into the wood, the thick axe blade pushes apart the wood.

Not for sale to any one under 18 years old.
The poll of this axe, like the poll on most axes, is definitely not designed for heavy pounding on a wedge.

The axe has a 3" face and a 70cm hickory handle and the head weighs 2.4 kg.

This splitting axe sells out very quickly in Autumn and Winter so worth buying yours when we have them in stock and you can split your wood so it seasons well for winter.

This is a popular splitting axe, especially amongst taller users and people used to a longer axe.

This is is the kind of size splitting axe you will see in most hardware stores and is great for average size people upwards.

The poll of this axe, like the poll on most axes, is not designed for heavy pounding on a wedge.
