Gränsfors Bruks

Gränsfors Bruks is a small family owned company based in Sweden about 340 km north of Stockholm. Since 1902 they have produced the finest quality axes and crowbars. A subsidiary operates in South Carolina since 1986. GB produces a wide variety of axes, log building tools and replicas of old axes. In the United States they also produce safety apparel and equipment for loggers. The philosophy behind this brand is fascinating.

The axeforge in Sweden is open every workday of the week and they even have a real axe museum which is open 7 days a week. Visitors can participate in special courses in forging, log building and grinding. If you are interested in going into the woods, you can alway read the AXE Book. Then you will at least know what axe is ideal for your intended purpose. Thanks Paolo Bellini for sharing!
