Gransfors Bruks American Felling Axe

Gransfors Bruks American Felling Axe

The Swedish firm of Gransfors Bruks makes the world's finest axes, and their new American Felling Axe bears as much resemblance to the ones you buy in a hardware store as a Porsche does to a school bus. It has a 31.4-pound head and a 31-inch premium hickory handle, comes with a leather sheath, and will shave the hair from your arm. If you thought no one made real axes anymore, you were wrong. It's $105 plus $5 shipping from Geoffrey Burke at Chocorua Boatworks. % 603-323-8172; or e-mail canoeaxe@worldpath.net.
