Gransfors Bruk Large Carving Axe, Carved Handle

0/5 0 reviews

Good all-round greenwoodworking axe.

The long curved cutting edge extends above the head's eye which makes slicing cuts easier to achieve.

The addition of a carved handle gives even better grip, balance and control.

Originally developed in collaboration with Swedish master wood craftsman Wille Sundqvist with inspiration from old axe designs.

Quite a heavily bearded axe which allows you to get your hand directly behind the bit for close-up fine work.

Available in 3 different grinds:

  • Double-sided Ground with equal bevels, suitable for right and left handed users.  Equal bevels makes this the most generally useful axe especially when removing wood from slightly concave features, such as spoon blanks. Will more willingly go where you want it to go compared to the Right or Left Ground Axes. It can be used by right or left handed users. For most people, equal bevels, a relatively thin bit and medium weight will make this a good generalist axe. 
  • Right Ground is a handed axe suitable only for right-handed users. Asymetric bevels, short on the right, long on the left. Right Ground axes work in a slightly different way,  they cut at a lower angle, 'biting' readily and work on straight or convex surfaces.  They don't come out of concave shapes. Preparing billets ready for the pole lathe and shaping the outside of bowl blanks is work Right Ground axes excell at. 
  • Left Ground is a handed axe suitable only for left-handed users. Asymetric bevels, short on the left, long on the right.  Left Ground axes work in a slightly different way,  they cut at a lower angle, 'biting' readily and work on straight or convex surfaces.  They don't come out of concave shapes. Preparing billets ready for the pole lathe and shaping the outside of bowl blanks is work Left Ground axes excell at.
