Gränsfors Bruks Axes

Gränsfors Bruks has committed over 100 years to manufacturing and developing axes. Every axe is specifically designed to meet a particular function, with a tireless focus on high quality and area of use. A considerable amount of effort has also been put into producing axes with sound green credentials, avoiding any unnecessary consumption of natural resources.

Gränsfors Bruks axes are divided into five different categories, based on their specific areas of use. The five categories are: Forest Axes, Splitting Axes, Log-building and Carpentry Tools, Double Bit Axes and Ancient Axes.

Availability of axes can vary depending on time of year so feel free to call us at 724-962-4561 or email parts@kerola.com to check current inventory and prices. Images used in photos are stock images and as such crafters initials may vary as well as the color of the wooden handle.
