The Great Axe is a new world gem that can be found in the game Diablo 3. This gem can be socketed into any weapon and will provide a significant damage boost to the weapon. The Great Axe is a rare gem and is therefore quite valuable.
A small version of the Scandinavian Forest Axe. 19″ handle and 1 1/2 lb. head. Due to high demand, some styles of Gransfors Bruks hand-forged axes may be back-ordered. A note regarding Axe Handles: It is important to keep your axe handle well protected from the effects of moisture, excessive dryness and temperature extremes.
Routine axe handle maintenance should include periodic use of any product marked suitable for unconditioned wood. Howard’s Feed N Wax, (a mix of beeswax and orange oil), Boiled Linseed Oil, even traditional Paste Wax, are excellent products with which to treat your axe handle.
These products are not expensive and routinely available at most hardware stores. Periodically conditioning your axe handle will significantly negate any opportunity for the wood grain to contract. Such contraction when left unchecked, allows an axe head to become loose on its handle.
Should you notice your axe head seeming loose without apparent cause, soaking the entire head overnight in Boiled Linseed Oil, will in most cases allow the wood grain inside the eye fitting to hydrate and expand.
This should provide a long-lasting solution. Axe handles are a natural material and may vary in color.
I researched this for several weeks before I made the decision on this axe. I had expectations from the reviews and tests that I had seen, but I was blown away at the quality. First thing, the edge is SHAVING sharp.
Not just taking a couple of hairs off, I mean SHARP. The handle is nice and smooth, no varnish, or weird finish. The handle was hung solid, no rocking or play at all. Perfectly contoured and extremely comfortable to use.
Perfect weight and balance for a pack axe. The hand forged head has its blemishes, but it makes it look like its meant to be used. Just like with any new wooden handle it needs some boiled linseed oil ever now and then.
Take it for what you will, but I believe this is the finest axe made in its class.
This is truly the ultimate one-volume book every hobbyist, jeweler, jewelry maker, and rockhound will ever need Following the spectacular success of the first four editions of Gemstones of the World, the revised fifth edition exhibits important updates and a beautiful new cover.
All the gemstones ever discovered–now over 1,900–are treated in their many variations. More than 1,500 full-color photos showcase each precious and semiprecious stone in both its rough natural state and its polished and cut renditions.
Each entry offers complete information on a gemstone’s formation and structure, physical properties and characteristics, methods of working, cutting, and polishing. You’ll find full treatments of lesser-known gems, from andalusite to vesuvian, and a special section devoted to rocks as precious stones, including alabaster, onyx, obsidian, and fossils.
Organic gem materials, such as coral, ivory, amber, and pearl, are also covered along with new-on-the-market stones like charcoite. Additionally, this all-inclusive volume includes imitations, synthetics, and combined stones.
Charts and tables help you identify unknown gemstones and–when you’re in the market–how to check for genuineness.
I work in the jewellery industry in Australia and I was recommended this book by a friend who’s been in the industry for 40 years. It really is an invaluable tool, an easy go-to when you need a quick answer or if you want more in-depth info.
I have bookmarked each section which makes it even easier. :).
I can start by saying yes,that I would buy it again. It was not at first what I was expecting,as I was looking for something to identify finished gemstones when I come across an unknown batch of them.
Instead I got that plus a book you can actually lie down on the beach and read for enjoyment. It’s full of facts you probably didn’t know about many gemstones, and of course has loads of color plates showing what the stones look like when faceted/finished and ready for use.
Although there’s nothing I actually disliked about it, I would have liked several photos of each finished stone in various shades and from various angles and lighting conditions,and with the stones shown larger size for more ease of comparison with actual stones I might be trying to identify.
but that would have required a much greater use of color plates and pages. I’d still give it five-stars.
A very informational book, a must have for anyone that has an extreme interest in stones, wonderful for the average rock hounder, collector and lapidary artist. The photos could have been better but the information is beyond what the average person would need.
(If your looking for a book that tells you the healing properties, if bypass this and go to the crystal bible. This is more scientific. ) A wonderful addition to my gem boom collection!.
“Made in the USA this Estwing E45A 26 inch camper axe is the ideal axe for camping, hunting and farm use. It has a forged steel head with has a bonded and molded Shock Reduction Grip that reduces shock up to 70 percent and will not come off.
The 4″ cutting edge makes deeper faster cuts and easier chopping. Includes a nylon sheath. Ideal camping axe that is lightweight but tough for cutting and chopping small to medium size wood and branches for fire wood.
This is the best axe for all seniors. Light weight, easy to swing. Solid made axe and soft grip handle. I would recommend this fine axe to all senior outdoors men and outdoors woman. The handle is long enough to get both hands on it for a good swing.
Excellent campfire axe. Made in the USA. The riveted nylon sheath protecting the axe head has a sewn strap so it can be worn on a belt. Light weight for back packing trips.
I am a Canadian Canoe Guide in the summer and have led trips in northern Ontario for nearly 20 years. An axe in my pack is always one of my important tools from clearing portages to camp firewood, my axe gets used every day.
I recently switched to an Estwing 26 inch Camper Axe because over the years, my wooden handled axes ended up rotting over time from sitting in water at the bottom of the canoe. The Estwing’s all steel handle is an outstanding design, super durable and is my go-to tool.
The only complaints that I have, is that the head is a bit thin for splitting wood and can bury deep in softer wood, and when the axe is old and worn as mine is, it is hard to see when you put it down in the woods to gather an armload of firewood.
Also I wish it were about 3 inches shorter because when I have it on the side of my pack and I roll my canoe up to my shoulder, the handle catches the gunnel and often bumps up against the inside of the canoe when I carry it.
The first two complaints are easy to remedy by just not using it to split and by putting some bright tape on the handle – mine is a bit worn and all of the blue came off. I recently bought the same exact Estwing for my wife who is also a northwoods canoe guide and she loves it.
She and I have used Gransfors axes for years and she finally retired her shorter handles Gransfors for the Estwing. I would highly recommend this axe for backwoods travel and when I am not on trail, it lives under the seat of my 4×4 – ready for action.
Åby Forest Axe from Hultafors has a straigther edge and grinding, and a good finger notch below the head for increased precision. The long, thin ergonomic handle minimizes the weight, at the same time giving you great force when striking.
This axe is perfect for shelter building, processing firewood, and carving as well as precision work. In short, it is your perfect forest companion. The axe is hand forged and made from Swedish quality steel in the forge at Hults Bruk.
The forging tradition goes as far back as 1697, and the steel head is struck 40-60 times to increase density and durability to the head.
The Hultafors Aby axe is a perfect blend of workmanship and design and is a must-own tool for any serious woodsman or homeowner. The 700g (1. 5 lb) head is perfectly balanced with the US sourced and finely hung 61cm (24-inch) hickory handle.
This rather light forged head is easily handled by anyone. The 24″ handle generates ample head speed for cutting and splitting yet allows great control when doing more careful bushcraft work like carving or shaping.
It would also be great for big game butchering use as the Swedish steel head is extremely sharp and easy to maintain. I use a double sided puck stone with 180/600 grit and a leather strop to keep the keen edge sharp and it holds that edge through a long day of work.
I did a paracord wrap on the handle to protect it from overstrikes and also drilled a hole in the handle and added a leather lanyard to make sure I don’t lose the axe when working around water (see photo).
I also lightly sanded the handle with 150 grit sandpaper, and put 3 more coats of boiled linseed oil on it until it wouldn’t take any more oil. It is now what I consider to be the perfect light woodsmanship axe with a price point that makes it perhaps the best value in its class.
Kent of Inglewood shipped my axe the same day. As a US buyer I was concerned about the International DHL shipping, but I literally got my axe in only two days which was a day earlier than anticipated.
If you need a medium forest axe you can’t go wrong buying the Hultafors Aby from Kent of Inglewood. I just can’t say enough positives about the axe quality and the buying experience. You will be delighted.
First of all, the fit and finish of this axe is beautiful. Quickly after unboxing, I shaved off a few too many arm hairs testing the edge. Although I did expect it to be razor sharp, it still surprised me just how sharp it was.
I just returned from an 8 day canoe trip at Murtle lake in British Columbia. I used this axe extensively everyday on the trip. There was supposed to be some fire wood provided at the sites so I thought I would only have to split wood.
It turned out that the wood was provided as 8′ – 12′ logs varying in diameter up to 10 inches. I did not bring a buck saw as this was not expected, so I had to use the axe to chop the logs into useable sizes.
I have tried this on occasion with cheap hardware store axes and had absolutely no success. But the Abey forest axe bit deep into the grain and made me feel like a real lumber jack. It gave me extra man points with my wife and kids to process such large logs with relative ease and efficiency.
I also used the axe to limb the logs ahead of chopping them which again was no problem. Some of the wood was full of knots which gave me a bit of trouble while splitting them, as they usually do with anything but a maul.
Other than that, the axe split wood effectively. I highly recommend this axe to anyone venturing out into the back country. The size, weight and versatility make this tool worth it’s weight in your pack.
A great axe for lighter work – you could fell a small tree but it is really an incredibly well balanced axe for limbing, splitting logs, shaving (not your beard) and carving. Well balanced for me because it has a relatively long handle compared to the weight of the head.
It comes in a nice box and it’s very sharp. I’m impressed.

Product arrived, impressed when took it out of packaging. Comes with sewing kit and fish hook in twist on/twist off base of axe handle. Handsomely made. Sharp! Love that it comes with safety cover as well as rubber slip on/slip off for Axe blade.
Carpenters Axe has a straight edge and thin blade with a low angle bevel face, suited for work in dry wood. The forged inward curve from the heel to the lip of the head allows your hand to grip almost straight above the center of the edge.
This, and the long straight cutting edge, gives rigidity, stability, and control when cutting. Functions like a good heavy knife. The axe poll is ground and can be used as a hammer. 3-1/2″ face 18″ handle 1-1/2 lb head.
Premium quality axes, hand-forged at Grnsfors Bruks, a family owned forge in a small town in Sweden. As a matter of pride, when the smith is finished and satisfied with his work he marks the head with his initials beside the companys crown label.
Each axe is sharp and ready to cut, has a hickory handle and leather sheath.
Gransfors Bruk Large Splitting Ax W Cg – Gransfors Bruk Splitting Axe cuts quickly and easily into the wood and then effectively splits it as the broader section pushes apart the wood. The handle has a protective steel collar below the axe head and circular grooves towards the end for an extra firm grip.
There are two models available. Model 441 is a small splitting axe that can be used for medium-sized firewood. It weighs 3. 5 pounds and length with handle is 23 inches. Model 442 is a large splitting axe that can be used for splitting all types of firewood.
It weighs 5 pounds and length with handle is 27. 5 inches. Both model axes are forged and ground to a concave, thin blade at the bit. Sheath is made of vegetable-tanned leather.
The only uncertainty I had before buying was if the length and weight would fit my needs (chopping small to medium logs under an 8 feet patio floor while being 6 feet tall). All good so far. Some early remarks: 1.
It’s awesome craftsmanship (as one expects from Gränsfors Bruks. and quite frankly at that price point!). 2. The bevel design is really ideal to split good chunks with a relatively modest swing of the axe.
For the knotty pieces that resist the first “normal force” swing, the point will have penetrated deep enough for one to complete with a reverse knock without the log flying off mid-way on the way down.
This being said, a very strong blow will usually get through most knotty pieces. 3. The metal guard – which is surprisingly thick – has already sustained several good hits without any dent. 4. as with any other similar tools, rust can appear quickly if one is not careful, and especially when chopping wood in winter, (i.
e. important to remove any trace of ice/snow before putting the leather sheath back on!). Delivery was within reasonable time and price for such heavy package. Will make sure to come back here again for future needs.
But overpriced. Shipment took about a week longer than estimated; package got caught up in customs. The axe itself is excellent: great size for splitting medium and small logs (18-6 inches in diameter).
Used in conjunction with a large splitting axe or maul or around campgrounds, its perfect. Better fit and finish than Muller and Husqvarnas hand-made lineup, both of which blow fiskars and other Home Depot brands out of the water.
I own five hand-forged axes, a couple fiskars axes, a few splitting wedges, and this one is the best quality overall and the most versatile of the splitters. I needed something between a 5lbs splitting axe and a hatchet, and this fit the bill.
Just wish the bill were not literally double what other, slightly less refined hand-forged European axes cost.

The Hunter’s Axe is specially made for hunters. The Poll is forged thinner than normal and gently rounded and burnished to a Flay Poll to be used when skinning an animal. Besides that the axe is good for chopping, in wood as well as meat and bones.
All handles are made of selected high quality (prima) American hickory. Gränsfors Bruks axe handles are soaked in hot linseed oil and dripped dry. They are then covered with beeswax to help keep the dirt off.
The grip of the handle has circular grooves which gives a steady grip even if your hands are wet or sticky. This axe has received, as the first and only axe in Sweden, a design award from The Swedish Society of Crafts and Design.
The axe has a 3 1/4″ face and a 19″ hickory handle and the head weighs 1 1/2 lb. It comes with a grain-leather sheath.
Waited more than a year (since July 2021) for Gransfors Bruk to start producing this axe again – it was WELL worth the wait. Great well-balanced heft and obvious high quality craftsmanship. Caribou Gear stayed on top of my backorder, constantly following up with the US supplier & keeping me informed.
Will finally use it on my NM elk hunt end of Oct. Looking forward to see how the rounded ‘flay poll’ aids in skinning the animal.
It’s a beautiful axe with all the quality you would expect from Gransfor Bruk. I bought it for use in my Land Rover Series and hope to use it in the Autumn when I head out camping and fishing. Pleased this store stocks them over here in the USA.
Really like this little axe. It is light enough to pack easily in backpack or on the belt but big enough to get 2 hands on for some serious chopping. Came to me in perfect condition. best finish on the edge of any axe I have ever purchased.
Used it last weekend on a backpack trip. We camped where the only wood available was some dried oak. it was rock hard and yet this little axe and some elbo grease got us enough firewood to cook supper.
Chopping and batton splitting 4-6 inch dried oak. now thats something!.
The Knife & Axe Axe stone is a large (7. 5cm diameter), two grit (240 and 400) axe stone that can be used dry, with water, or with oil. The included screw top aluminum tin is great for both soaking and storing the stone.
Very useful, simple, compact stone. Like that it is safely and cleanly stored in a tin, especially after oiling. Works great on hatchets and knives – the dual grit level gets the job done quickly. The compact size of stone and the container makes packing easy.

This small axe is nicely put together for the price. Like other reviews it is made in San Salvador and is worthy of praise. Hickory handle is 15 inches give or take a little and wood grain is oriented in the proper way to give strength and flexibility swelling near axe head gives it strength and also at the grip end so it does not slip.
Head is well made, not sure if its hand forged as there are no forging marks on it that are readily visible , although it is purported to be. Used it to trim trees and make kindling and head is still tight with no visible chips or marks to edge.
Have not really pounded hard wood with it but looks like it will take some punishment. You will need to sharpen edge to your liking but is sharp of the box. Head is fixed on by hardwood wedge and circular metal ring.
If you want an inexpensive camp axe that has some nice quality features in it go for it there are reviews in YouTube as well that help to understand the makeup of this axe.
I want to start by saying that I like this little axe, and think it does what its intended to well. It basically a hatchet head with a short axe handle, which will make it great for backpacking and using around the camp.
Some things to note: mine did not come sharp, edge needed to be shaped. Handle grain is correct, however someone with large hands may feel like the handle is a little thin, and a bit round as apposed to oval.
Lastly, after sharpening it I took it out and hacked away at some trees that fell on my property. I was able to remove 10-12″ limbs without much hassle. After a little work I sunk it into a stump and gave the handle a wiggle, and it had loosened a little.
A bit of a shame, but I poured fresh 10w30 oil onto the wedge and the wood swelled up and tightened the head up.
Almost everything is great about this camp axe, the only complaint is the grain orientation of the handle is opposite of what it should be, this means it WILL snap sooner than later. The great thing about this axe and the main reason I purchased it is it does come from the same factory as Condor products.
I will be making a custom handle with the proper grain orientation. Also SMKW has a full line of Marbles products and this axe is around $20 there. of course I found that out after purchasing this one on Ebay.
You can’t go wrong with Marbles axes, just shop around first.
The Scandinavian Forest Axe, the Wildlife Hatchet and the Small Forest Axe are the three most popular axes made by Gransfors. The Gransfors Bruks Scandinavian Forest Axe is an excellent tool for felling and for limbing larger trees.
The long handle and the relatively heavy head enable a very powerful stroke. The forests of Scandinavia feature many evergreens, and this axe’s thin, sharp, curved bit is particularly adapted to fresh, resinous pine and spruce.
The Scandinavian Forest Axe is also a useful tool when building with logs. The 2 pound head (0. 9 kg) has a 3. 5 inch (9 cm) face and curved bit, and the handle is 25 inches (63 cm) of prime hickory.
Sheath included. All Gransfors Axes come with the AXE BOOK and a 20 year guarantee.
I really enjoyed the review videos that were done for each of the products I was looking to buy. They were educational and helped give an idea of what each axe would look and feel like in hand. The product was of the highest quality with a razor sharp edge which is to be expected from Gransfors Bruks.
I also appreciated the attention to detail in regard to the packaging of the axe with ample bubble wrap to keep the axe edge from bumping up against the sheath and potentially damaging the edge. Great purchase, great company.
You’re likely here because you’ve heard the rumours, watched a few YouTube videos or have a crazy uncle that has gifted you a Scandinavian Forest Axe or Small Forest Axe. Well, you know – knowledge of this axe is of phenomenal benefit.
Keep researching as this axe really is an amazing product and the internet doesn’t lie. Its perfectly balanced, unbelievably crafted and backed by a 20 year guarantee. Gransfors says this is for limbing – but in reality it can take down and/or split a young forest.
I’ve split, chopped and played with 6-8″ diametre trunks while camping. For me the real difference between the need for the Scandinavian Forest Axe (3. 5″ face, 25″ handle + 2. 6 lb weight) and the Small Forest Axe (3.
25″ face, 19″ handle + 2 lb head) is the individual’s height. Both are very similar and unbelievably well made. And if a Zombie Apocalypse occurred tomorrow – you’d not be disappointed by a Gransfors Bruks Forest Axe as your main defense.
Give one of these a little love and it will become a family heirloom.
Received my Scandinavian forest Axe today and could not be happier. Great Product in New condition. Excellent Price, free and fast shipping !!! The Guys at Appalachian Outfitters did a great job. I love Gransfors products and AO has most of the models and all at great prices.
Many more transactions here in my future. Thanks!!.

I bought this for myself, because I love rock and gem dig kits. I’ve done a number of these in the past, and while they all took a while, they were all worth the money I spent, and the time and effort I put into them.
So I had high hopes for this one, especially since it’s from National Geographic. But the very first gem I uncovered basically resembled a piece of rough glass. It broke clean in half before I even had it all the way out.
The second one was caked in the plaster, I was worried I’d brake it if I tried to scrape or chip the plaster off. I’ve tried getting them wet in the past, hoping to soften the plaster. But all it did was make it messier.
I would return it, except for the fact the store most likely won’t take it back once it’s been dug into, because they can’t re-sell it. I would not recommend buying this unless you can find it for a much, much cheaper price.
First, our kids loves mining all of the gemstones out of the digging brick. There are 15 gemstones included, and they were nice quality. The educational content was my favorite part, there is a guide that explains what all of the different gemstones are.
Due to high demand, some styles of Gransfors Bruks hand-forged axes may be back-ordered. The world’s greatest manufacture of beautiful handmade Swedish Axes, Gransfors Bruks, now brings you a way to maintain your precious axe.
With your new Axe Sharpening File you can keep your handmade Swedish Axe as pristine as the day you first purchased it. This wonderful little tool helps to maintain a proper cutting edge on your ax, that would otherwise become dull rendering your tool useless.
The sharpening axe file is easy to carry on your person due to it’s convenient size. It comes with a leather case to keep it from becoming damaged so that it will always be in excellent condition when you need it.
The Gransfors Bruks Sharpening Axe File is great for any outdoors enthusiast or just for simply sharpening a couple of knives around the house. Due to high demand, some styles of Gransfors Bruks hand-forged axes may be back-ordered.
Couple of things to point out: (1) This is a very small file to re-profile your axe; ie. remove the dings and chips from the blade. It isn’t a file to sharpen your axe. If you are looking to sharpen your axe you’ll need the “diamond axe file” – for which I think >95% are seeking, as most with a Gransfors axe won’t likely be swinging their axe wildly and damaging the blade.
(2) This is a $50 vanity item. Its small and doesn’t fully fit one’s hand. It has the GB logo on the sheath. For such an item that you’ll use at most once every other year, most would be better off with a less trendy, less compact-sized file from their local hardware store or Lee Valley-esque woodworking shop.
The file is small enough to carry in your pocket and big enough to reprofile the axe/hatchet edge, if necessary, as well as general sharpening. I like the handle design for both grip in use and safety is well thought out too with the big flared ends keeping you away safe from the edge.
A real life moviestar! Cold Steel – Axe Gang Hatchet has been featured in the hitseries The Walking Dead and a lot of Kung Fu movies. But this Axe is not a diva and certainly not a prop. Axe Gang Hatchet has a heat treated head with an incridible hard edge which is capable of getting an incredible sharpness, whilst the body of the axe is capable of absorbing hard blows.
The handle is made of american hickory tree and has chinese Kanji characters in the bottom which means “Axe Gang”. The head is in 1055 carbon steel and the overall weight of the axe is 900 g.
I bought this axe to step into a new hobby. I wasnt sure but, after some research, landed on this axe. I own several Cold Steel knives and figured it was a solid company with an awesome track record.
Having had ZERO exposure and even less experience in axe throwing, I wanted to start with a good foundation. I couldnt have chosen a better starting point. I compared many many different options. I had to determine style, weight, length, width and so many other attributes of the axe.
This model ticked all the boxes for a starter/intermediate/ advanced throwing axe. Cold Steel did a phenomenal job of creating something to provide the user with confidence and a little courage to jump off into this complicated hobby.
Im still learning and my axe has been a great teacher and an even better equalizer, as it is so easy to fall in love with. Even bad throws look impressive. Most beginner axes are 10, 12, 15 and a few 16-17 models.
Cold Steel comes in at 21 and gives solid purchase and grip for one handed and two handed throwing without having to choke up too far on the handle. This makes a huge difference when gaining confidence in your technique and style.
While I have a long way to go in perfecting this hobby, Ill be able to continue with this weapon throughout the journey, as ittruly has it all. Couldnt be MORE PLEASED! I would recommend this to anyone wanting to begin this challenge.
Have used around a dozen of these axes over a couple years for axe throwing after cutting them down. I highly recommend soaking them in water to give them strength to withstand being thrown at distances further than 28 feet.
For regular use at 14 or so feet they are great for seasoned vets at throwing but have had 3 break in 2 hours with new throwers hitting handles and them splintering off. The metal is super soft and requires a lot of sharpening.
The wood is strong for throwing but make one mistake and that may be your last mistake as the handles really aren’t strong. When they are soaked in water for 15 minutes or so before being thrown they can take a beating.
Overall good cheap axe to have fun with but expect some failures.

The resharpenable hatchet blade is great for chopping, clearing debris, or demolition. The hammer head and claw is great for pounding in and removing tent stakes or repairing your deer stand. The patented, integrated 6 bi-metal saw blade folds out of the handle, locks into place, and will saw through just about anything you need it to.
