Gransfors Bruks Large Carving Axe #475

A large carving axe with a long curved edge for great slicing cuts.

The Gransfors Bruks Large Carving Axe (previously known as the Swedish Carving Axe) is an excellent tool for artistic wood carving and architectural work.

Developed in collaboration with master craftsmen Wille Sundqvist and Onni Linnanheimo, with inspiration from old designs, the axe features a characteristic curved edge, carried well above the heads eye. The position of the edge in proportion to the handle, the rather thick bit and the big angle of the wide beveled face makes the axe a good carving tool.

A chop axe for hewing bowls and other wooden objects, artistic wood carving and architectural work. The characteristic curved shape of the cutting edge, carried well above the heads eye, the position of the edge in proportion to the handle, the rather thick bit and the big angle of the wide beveled face makes the axe a good carving tool. You "cut on the beveled face" with curved movements. This new axe pattern, based on old Swedish carving techniques, is developed by Wille Sundqvist, master craftsman and author of Swedish Carving Techniques in cooperation with craftsman adviser Onni Linnanheimo. The handle is "rugged" to give a good grip.

The axe has a 4 1/3" face and a 14" hickory handle and the head weighs 2 lb. It comes with a grain-leather sheath.
