Gränsfors Bruk considers sustainability a top priority. Our commitment to being a green company combines social, environmental, and ethical responsibilities. We make every business decision based on these key values. 

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. 

What Makes Grӓnsfors
Bruk Different?

Each Gränsfors Bruk axe is a unique reflection of the skilled blacksmith who fashioned it—and comes with initials stamped in the steel. It’s a mark of our commitment to the highest standards of craftsmanship.

We believe in a cleaner, greener production process. All Gränsfors Bruk axes are made with sustainable materials like recycled steel and American hickory. Each blade edge is covered with a chromium-free, vegetable-tanned leather sheath.  

Not All Axes are Created Equal

Buying a Gränsfors Bruk axe means investing in something dependable. Something beautiful. Something made to last. It’s why we confidently provide a 20-year guarantee on the axe head. And why our customers pass down our products from one generation to another. When properly cared for, our axes will last a lifetime or longer.
