Forest Axes

Our selection of forest axes is specifically designed for woodland environments, perfect for felling trees and snedding. We carry a variety of forest axes from reputable Swedish manufacturers including Gransfors Bruk and Hultafors. Both brands offer a range of dedicated forest axes that cater to a wide range of practical woodland management and forest duties. These axes feature long, rounded cutting edges with gently convex bevels and elongated heads, distinguishing them from other axes.

Forest axes are ideal for cutting across the grain of wood fibres, making them suitable for felling and limbing tasks. Unlike log splitting, where the axe moves along the grain of the wood fibres, forest axes must endure harsh and edge-dulling conditions. Therefore, the bevels on forest axes are gently convex, ensuring a longer-lasting sharp edge.
