The Gränsfors Splitting Hatchet can be used with one or two hands for smaller firewood. It is forged and ground to a concave, quite thin blade at the bit. The axe cuts quickly and easily into the wood and then effectively splits it as the broader section pushes apart the wood. The handle has a protective steel collar below the axe head and circular grooves towards the end for an extra firm grip. *Splitting Axes should not be used for striking a wedge or be used as a wedge. Only the Splitting Maul is designed for this. 

Chopping & stacking CORDs of wood in the White Mountains of Arizona with my dad in fall was a welcomed ceremony. The smells, the labor and the reward of warm fires that kept us sustained throughout the winter, were things I looked forward too every year. I also looked forward to swinging a proper axe...without a good axe the task would have been inefficient and not enjoyable. I was taught early on to always have well crafted tools for the task at hand.

All the axes produced by Gränsfors Bruk are forged by hand. Any piecework arrangements have been scrapped so that the smiths can put more time into forging a good axe, removing the need for the excessive post-production work that other manufacturers might use to conceal faults in their forging. This is something that sets Gränsfors Bruk’s axes apart from axes made on an industrial scale. At Gränsfors Bruk, the forging is allowed to take its time.
