Description

The Gränsfors Large Carving Axe is used for woodworking and shaping wood. The axe has been developed in collaboration with master craftsmen Wille Sundqvist and Onni Linnanheimo, with inspiration from old designs. The Large Carving Axe has a relatively long, curved cutting edge which is double-sided as standard. The axe is also available as a special order with the edge ground specifically for right-handed or left-handed carving.

The Large Carving Axe, Grinded left side, has a short bevel face on the right side of the edge, if the axe is held in the right hand with the handle down and head up. The left side of the edge has a longer, slightly concave bevel face, which provides excellent support when carving.

Right-handed persons normally use Large Carving Axe, Grinded left side, while the longer slightly concave bevel face come near the wood and therefore provides excellent support when carving.

The handle has an uneven surface, giving good friction for a firm grip. The axe is also available as a special order with a carved handle, giving even better grip and control.
