The Gransfors Hand Hatchet uses the head of the Wildlife Hatchet, but with a much shorter handle made from hickory. This little hand hatchet can be used for heavy work, ideal for splitting kindling. The Hand Hachet is great for packing in a rucksack while camping or driving up to the mountains for a bonfire. The Hand Hatchet is 9.5 inches long, with a total weight of 23 ounces. It comes with a leather sheath, the axe book and a 20 year guarantee from Gransfors Bruks. Gransfors Bruks axes are forged by professional blacksmiths that take great time and effort in their trade. The proof of this professionalism is in the way they are able to forge axes with such precision and beauty. There is no need to stone, grind, smooth or paint the axes in order to eliminate imperfections. At Gransfors Bruks, the forging crafter is allotted sufficient time to complete each axe or hatchet with the care necessary. The smiths do their best forging right from the beginning in order to produce the finest axes and hatchets in the world.

My Gransfors Bruks Hand Hatchet finally came in. Purchased my axe through Summit Hut great company would recommend using them.
A friend of mine had purchased this axe so it was my short experience with his axe that made me buy one. I had to eat my words a bit as when we were discussing his purchase of a hatchet I told him it was a waste of money and weight and a good heavy knife was all one needed ( i carry bark river bravo 1 knife ) After seeing, feeling, and trying his hand hatchet, it wasn't long before I was sold on buying one for myself.
This this is short!!! I have included a picture of my bravo knife in comparison they look about the same length but crazy thing is my bravo 1 knife is indeed longer.
Ask yourself what you want the axe for. And buy the axe to meet those needs and don't ask, expect, demand, or criticize your axe when it fells to do more than it was designed to do.
I wanted something short enough to carry on my person and now that I have it in my possession I'll start playing with some leather sheath concepts. I wanted something with better chopping and splitting power than my knife (not much more than my knife again everything in reason a serious cutter and splitter are true axes and splitting axes NOT HATCHETS)
I think this will serve me well and my intended use.
A NOTE REGARDING THE HANDLE as there has been some criticisms regarding its quality. The handle is too short for two handed use. Ideally a true axe is meant to be handled with two hands. Your dominate hand planted stationary at the end of the handle furthest from the head and your non dominate hand dynamically held along the shaft of the handle meaning your non dominate hand slides toward the head during recovery of the axe and slides toward your dominate hand during the swinging of the axe. This short handle was intended for ONE HAND chopping and as such has one less hand helping to reduce the risk of the axe getting away from you. As such Gransfors Bruks intentionally added the roughness to the handle which as I understand it the handle was taken from one of there other wood carving tools. The roughness of the handle is not a flaw in the workmanship. It is part of the design. A smooth axe handle does not benefit you when swinging one handed.
If you are looking for a highly polished,shiny axe or hachet these arent for you, go to Ace Harware. If you are looking for a high quality tool that's hand made ,these are the finest you can buy.
Also I was extremely pleased with the grain orientation, I don't think I could've asked for better. very, very nice!
2nd axe from MadeinEurope had:
- significant forging issues on axe head and poor blade edge quality.
- abrasions on sheath
- not in original packaging
- appears to be a factory 2nd or used product
