Gransfors Swedish Carving Axe

Item M-618

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 head's eye, the position of the edge in proportion to he handle, the rather thick bit and the big angle of the wide beveled face makes this axe a good carving tool. You "cut on the beveled face" with curved movements. This new axe pattern, based on old Swedish carving techniques, was developed by Wille Sundqvist, master craftsman and author of "Swedish Carving Techniques" in cooperation with craftman 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.
$179.00

I bought this and the Gransfors adze as gifts for my sweetie who is an avid carver. She wanted to make wooden bowls, and these products made it possible. They take and hold an edge and when I purchased them they were sharp enough to shave with! They still are. These are works of art. I protect them fiercely and would never let anyone but her handle or use them. Besides, they are so sharp I don't want to be responsible! LOL They are put away always in a safe keeping place.
