The Gransfors Bruk 425 Outdoor Axe/Hatchet was developed with the help of survival expert Lars Fält, and is ideal for those who want to use an axe in different ways when out and about in the countryside. Although it is light, it can be used to fell a tree, thanks to its relatively long handle and heavy, elongated head. The axe is also excellent for limbing a tree. The handle has a protective steel collar near the head so that the axe can be used for light wood splitting tasks. It can also be used as a large knife.
Lars Fält, who worked with Gransfors Bruk to design the Gransfors Bruk Outdoor Axe, established the Swedish Armed Forces Survival School and has trained the Swedish Army Ranger Battalion for 35 years at the Ranger School and Parachute Ranger School. He has also written 10 books on survival and outdoor pursuits.

Bought this axe for the purpose of making kindling to go in a backyard firepit. If you buy wood that is already split, this axe is useful to process that wood in to smaller pieces.
Happy this local Ohio store supplies Gransfors. Feels good to buy local.
Great quality Axe with multiple purposes in the field. Lovin it.
I love this compact, versatile axe. (Might be called a hatchet.) Hand-forged in Sweden, the quality and craftsmanship are amazing.
I haven’t taken this one out yet, but I’ve used my brother’s, which is why I bought my own, and it is amazing. This little axe can do just about anything. Great craftmanship. It handles itself like a much bigger axe. Appalachian Trail Outfitters shipped it faster than I expected, and it came well packed and undamaged.
