Gransfors Bruk Small Forest Axe 420
Don't get the idea that these are crude. They are %$#!@ gorgeous, excuse the computer swearing. They are precisely made, incredibly consistent, but the superficial vagaries that adorn (not afflict, not infect) any product made by humans more than machines, and made of natural materials and old-world processes.
It may be that you are not a good match for a hand-made, traditional tool. But if you are, you will love your Gransfors! It looks great when new, better when used.
