Forest Axes

This category includes all those axes that have a role working in the woods be that felling trees or snedding (cleaning stems by removing side branches).


Our two main brands are renowned Swedish manufacturers Gransfors Bruk and Hultafors. 

Forest axes from both of these world renowned manufacturers are made to be used in the forest for everything from felling large trees to limbing small logs. The distinguishing feature are a long rounded edge with a flat elongated axe head.

Specially designed to cut across the grain of the wood fibres, for example when felling and limbing, in contrast to log splitting, where the axe goes along the grain of the wood fibres.  


Forest axes work in a dirty, edge dulling environment so the bevels are gently convex to help keep the edge sharper for longer.
