Gransfors Bruks Swedish Broad Axe #4801 Straight handle double bevel

Broad axes are perfect for building log houses and shaping large items. Choose from double, left and right grinds.

The design of the Swedish Broad Axe is based on old traditional Swedish logging techniques for squaring logs and structural timbers, for example when building a log house.

The design provides sufficient space between the "blade’s beard" and the handle for the user’s fingers. The blade of the Swedish Broad Axe is beveled on both sides (double beveled).

The handle is roughened towards the head for extra grip and precision.

The pattern of the Broad Axe and the handle is based on old Swedish logging techniques for squaring logs and structural timbers of all kinds. The eye (and the direction of the handle) may be straight or sideways angled, right or left, to protect the knuckles. One side beveled, left side, normally goes with an eye angled sideways to the right. If you want deeper visible cuts when squaring logs, you may even have a broad axe, double beveled, with the blade bent and the eye angled sideways to the right or to the left.

The broad axe has a 7" face and a 20" hickory handle and the head weighs 3 lb. It comes with a grain-leather sheath.
