I’ve had my eye on the Gransfors Bruk Outdoor Axe for some time. I would like to know what people who have used them or own them think about them. If you have used one, what tasks did you do with it?
Though not specific to the Outdoor Axe, here is a similar thread with some GB experience:
FWIW, as you may already know, the head weight of the Gransfors Bruks Outdoor Axe (0.75 lbs.) is a little under half that of the Flying Fox Woodsman Hatchet (1.625 lbs.) on a slightly shorter handle (14.5 vs 16 inches).
There’s nothing wrong with them, really- they’re just priced high for what they are and have a lot of hype surrounding them. If you like the idea of owning one you might be completely satisfied. They serve lots of folks just fine.I’ll have a look. Honestly, I was hoping for a Swedish axe, but I often buy American with knives and other tools otherwise.
Quick question for you- do you use other axes?I love my ones, I got my first small forest about 10 years ago and still use it every ither day.
I have 2 x small forest 1 x large forest 1 Scandinavia and a couple of the small wood working ones.
I use them for everything, from chopping down pine to bush craft carving.
Love them all hehe
A bit of everything, limbing, fire prep, driving tarp pegs, just general camp chores.
