The Gransfors Bruks Scandinavian forest axe is a great axe.
A traditional, functional, non-tacticool, D3V axehead design with a hickory handle would be awesome. I’d imagine that it wouldn’t be cheap.
If you were to Make a cube around that axe head, what would be the three dimensions?Aside from the large splitter, the ScFA is the only GB I've used. I find it to be a very handy size, especially for logs ~6" or smaller, kinda lacks the oomph for larger stuff. Like I mentioned in one of the other threads regarding a Carothers axe, something around a pound heavier, maybe an inch or so more cutting edge and 2" longer overall would make a great axe for smaller stuff.
Here's a pic, because everything is better with pictures and to give those unaware an idea of the size of the axe we're talking about.
Probably not. I know less than anybody though.
D3V would make an amazing edge for an ax.Probably not. I know less than anybody though.
Theres a reason axe heads generally tend to be high carbon type steels. Toughness is probably the most important thing I'm guessing.
