Detailed Description

Gränsfors Bruks Swedish Carving Axe

Gränsfors Bruks Swedish carving axe is used where efficient production and a rough-hewn texture are your goals. This axe has a wide 4-1/2 inch curved edge, carried well above the eye. The textured handle is 14 inches long; head weighs 2 lbs.

Double Bevel Carving Axe

The standard version of the carving axe is the double bevel. It has full bevels ground on both sides of the cutting edge and should be able to handle the vast majority of axe carving tasks. If you've never used a carving axe or don't know what to get, this is the carving axe for you.

Single Bevel Carving Axes

Single bevel carving axes are designed for experienced axe carvers. Gränsfors Bruk initially offered them as special order tools at the request of some professional carvers.

  • The left-bevel carving axe has a long bevel ground on the left side of the cutting edge when looking at the axe from behind. The right side of the cutting edge has a short bevel, but is basically flat.
  • The right-bevel carving axe has a long bevel ground on the right side of the cutting edge when looking at the axe from behind. The left side of the cutting edge has a short bevel, but is basically flat.

So, which one should I get? Selection of a single bevel carving axe is really about personal preference. In general, carvers who work left-handed will prefer a right-bevel carving axe and carvers who work right-handed will prefer a left-bevel carving axe. However, you may prefer the opposite. If you're unsure or have never used a carving axe, we strongly recommend the double-bevel carving axe.
