Large Splitting Axe - Gransfors Bruk
Designed for splitting wood. The axe head is quite heavy with forged cheeks on both sides of the blade, “splitting wedge shaped crests” which power apart the grain of the wood. A Splitting Axe does not just have to slice into the wood, the thick axe blade also pushes apart the wood. The poll of this axe, like the poll on most axes, is definitely not designed for heavy pounding on a wedge. The axe has a 3” face and a 27” hickory handle and the head weighs 3 1/2 lb.
