The Gransfors Bruk Small Forest Axe has a 1.5 lb head and a 19" handle which puts it in the 'Goldilocks' zone; meaning you can use it one handed for clearing trails, or choking up to de-bark or do some carving or finer work, but the handle is long enough that you can still take two hands to it for heavier work if needed.
The head of the axe - like all Gransfors axes - is hand forged in Sweden and is stamped with the initials of the smith who made it. That forging, along with its design, makes all the differences with these axes.
If you're looking for a highly portable (in that you can wear it on your hip or on your pack), general purpose, classic axe, the Gransfors Small Forest Axe is an ideal choice.
The Small Forest Axe is the same size as the Hunter’s Axe but with a more traditional pattern and poll. The blade is thin. The handle is long enough to allow powerful chopping but not too long, so it will fit into a rucksack, the back of a car or a boat.
Practical for splitting small sticks, or for cutting small diameter limb wood for starter fuel in a fireplace or campfire.
