SwedePro is a line of chain saw protective apparel that is designed to reduce the severity of injuries that may occur when a chainsaw makes contact with your body. From the feet up, SwedePro offers a wide variety of products that are solely designed to keep the chain saw user safe.
Inside all SwedePro chainsaw protective apparel are multiple layers of saw jamming Avertic® Pro material, made by Engtex®. This material is specifically engineered to pull apart when caught by the teeth of the rotating chain; thus, clogging the rotor, stopping the chain, allowing the user time to pull the chainsaw away from their body and release the throttle. Our product does not permanently damage the chain or the chainsaw. After contact, the chainsaw will only require a bit of cleaning and unjamming before using it again.
All apparel products are designed and manufactured in the United States, where they have been for more than 30 years. SwedePro products can be safely washed and dried at home, not only to clean but also fluff up the protective fibers.
SwedePro meets Leg Protection for Chainsaw Operators enforced by OSHA Regulation 1910.266, classified by UL using ASTM Test Method F1414 in accordance with ASTM Standard F1897.

Since 1902 Gränsfors Bruk Sweden has built a reputation around hand-forged axes. Continuing in the centuries-old Scandinavian axe making tradition, the Gränsfors Bruk forge produces many different functional axe designs to accommodate a multitude of user preferences and applications. Ovako Steelworks provides the steel used for the axe heads. It is derived from recycled scrap, that is processed into high-quality steel made specifically for Gränsfors Bruk. Ovako and Gränsfors Bruk share a strong mutual commitment to recycling and minimizing the impact of their manufacturing processes on the environment.
Each Gränsfors Bruk axe is a reflection of the skilled blacksmith who fashions it. As each smith completes an axe head he stamps his initials in the steel. This is a mark of his commitment to the highest standard of craftsmanship. Each Gränsfors Bruk axe carries a 20 year warranty against manufacturing defects to the axe head.
The forge, located in the Swedish village of Gränsfors, is in northern Hälsingland between Hudiksvall and Sundsvall. The rhythmic pounding of the forge can be heard as you approach the heart of the village.
