Gränsfors Bruk

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.
