There's only one drawback and it's not the price, you're getting way more than you're spending, it's the catalog. They will send you a catalog if you ever use the warranty or if you ask for one. Then, you're screwed. It's blade porn of the finest kind. If you do get a copy of the catalog, don't open it, throw it away or you'll be like me. I now own 9 of their products, i love everyone of them, each is the perfect penultimate expression of its kind. Im ruined on anythingnelse. I turn my nose up at anything you can get In a hardware store. I don't let anyone touch them because of my affection and becaue they are so sharp they are not safe for someone who doesn't know what he's doing.
Buy Gransfors Bruks and you won't be disappointed.
The size of this axe really appealed to me since throwing it into my day pack wouldn't weigh me down too badly. Having had a chance to get out and use it I'm pleased to say it makes the work of cutting and processing wood almost a joy! While I wouldn't want to fell trees with this axe, I could if the need arose. The light weight of this tool along with the razor sharp edge make chopping a pleasure. To say that this axe came sharp would be an understatement. As I carelessly shoved the axe back in it's nicely crafted leather sheath, I sliced the lower portion of the sheath about 3/4 of an inch before I realized what was happening! I'm much more careful now and place the lower portion of the blade in first and then rotate the top portion in for a nice secure fit.
I almost want to call this axe a hatchet because of it's compact size, but there is nothing compact about it's performance. I have found one down side to owning this axe. When it comes time to prepare a fire I have a hard time getting it away from my teen aged sons! But then they are more than happy to perform that chore with this sweet little axe. It's old world craftsmanship is plain to see and no doubt one of my sons will one day pass it on to his son.
I used the axe for de-limbing trees I cut down with my chainsaw. The 19" handle is the perfect length, and the curves of the handle help reduce shock the you strike the branches. Before this I was using a Fishers splitting axe to accomplish this and it was completely the wrong tool for the job. I am about three months in to the use of my GB Small Forest axe and am still excited to take it out of its case.
**I have struck some rocks and the blade came back to life with very little work. The steel holds up VERY well to use and abuse, but you will likely want to mount this thing to your wall when you receive it
I use this axe way beyond its means, cracked the handle one hand swinging this thing, my fault, got a replacement for it. Best woods tool I've ever used, keep a puck on hand to help retain the ridiculous sharp edges that just flat out bites deep. Plan on picking up a second one. Outstanding product.
