    Perfect carpenter’s axe! Razor-sharp as delivered. The workmanship is first-rate. The hickory handle has tight grains which are perfectly oriented. Metal-to-wood fit is super tight. This is an axe to last a lifetime and you certainly get what you paid for. No wonder it is #1. Highly recommended!

    This axe is awesome it’s my first Gransfors Bruks product and it was worth the money. The sheath came with it was kinda chincy, I got a new one. I ve tried other carpenters axes and have not been completely happy. This is a quality product. I’ve got some miles on it.

    I have never reviewed anything online before. I’ve always been a usurper of opinions I suppose. However, one interaction with this thing, and you know you have the real deal in your hand. It seemed only proper for me to comment. I only buy good quality hand tools, but I typically shudder at paying top prices like this. So, I usually just hit the antique shops or farm/garage sales to find what I what or rely on my FIL who is on the look out as well. The stamped metal in most of the tools you will find in stores is just not able to withstand the punishment I put my things through. There is ZERO buyers remorse here. For starters. As another review said, it is not meant for bushwork. It can do the job, sure, but there are others in Gransfors lineup that will do that much better based on their size, blade shape, etc. (probably some much cheaper options for that matter if you are just going to hack at stuff) This is make to work wood. I bought it specifically as I have recently started messing around with hewing beams as I clear some timber we own on our property. The shape makes a huge difference compared to the other axes I own in regards to controlled penetration and cleanliness of the material removed. This thing is sharp and it almost acts like a hand plane (or more appropriately worded….a chisel.) The straight handle is perfectly balanced and by moving your hand up or down the handle you can alter the speed /strength but doesn’t change your impact point much. Pick up a curved handled hatchet and you will see what I mean. The blade has recess where you can place your forefinger directly against it and you can apply the force directly through the center of the blade. Very surprising to see just how easy it was to maneuver something with an 18 inch handle. It really does seem to fight above its weight. By no means will I every be a guest star on The Yankee Workshop, but this is really easy to learn to use. As for construction: The steel is top notch. The wood handle is very nicely oiled. The sheath is a little pedestrian given just how gorgeous and put together the rest of this is, but it seems in line with the Swedish minimalist thing. I won’t be taking this camping with me so it really doest matter. Its just there to make sure I don’t slice open my femoral artery (this thing IS crazy sharp). After playing with it a while I can see why it differs from the carving axe or hatchet. The curved blade of the others will allow you to roll cut and etch more than this would and thats fine for me. I wanted to be able to rough shape more. If there was really intricate stuff to do I would probably just use a chisel and gouge. I was looking for a good quality tool that would be able to blend the functions of a small broad axe and a carving tool and it seems to have hit the mark as far as my needs go. With any luck, my daughters will fight over this when I am dead or send it with me to Valhalla.

    A little research on Gransfors Bruks should be enough to convince a serious consumer that you get what you pay for. This being the top of the line, I have yet to hear a reasonable complaint about a product of theirs.This is my second axe from them. This is a true wood-crafting tool and does not even belong in the same category as the ‘hatchets’.It’s medium size and weight allows for a wide range of work. I’d see the biggest reason to buy the carpenter version vs any other axe from GB is it’s ability to work and flatten a surface.Do not buy if you need something for firewood, or splitting kindling, this is more for shaping wood. Yes it will do those things but it’s true potential shines through when shaping wood.

    This axe is top notch quality. I ordered it for my husband after having used many of axes and the quality of this axe is the best he has seen. The only problem was that the sheath was cut during transit but because the axe was so sharp! Which is great and when I contacted them their customer service was also top notch. They sent us a new sheath right away and it arrived a couple days later. All in all we are super pleased and highly recommend this axe!

  8. Soma

    Personally, for its intended use I think this steel should be a bit harder, say 59-60 HRC but I understand that people may misuse and chip the edge if the steel were too hard.

  9. Amazon Customer

    I like the weight, and size of the axe. It’s very light, and sharp out of the box. I don’t notice any dings or chips in the blade. The only problem I have is the axe book that came with it is in German, and I speak English. I was under the impression the axe book would be written in English from the pictures I’ve seen.

    Super nice finish, very hard steel. All as expected for a GB. But if it`s your first “axe”, be aware that it is a hatchet size axe. For me, the husqvarna 26 inch multipurpose axe is a small/ medium axe. This a good size to go in the backpack though. Fit my small backpack. Not crazy sharp and polished out of the box, but really good. Maybe you can find a better price on Ray Mear`s site.
