Gransfors Bruks Wildlife Hatchet Product Review

As a trusted manufacturer of survival axes, Gransfors Bruks’ axe gives you the reliability you need during an emergency. This trusted name does mean the price tag is higher than other axes on the market, but the high quality of this axe can’t be denied.

The blade is particularly sharp compared to other axes, with some customers claiming it is sharp enough to shave with it. It really does seem razor-sharp, which means you know your chop will be clean and easy with this axe.

The wooden handle is relatively long, at 13.5 inches, which gives the axe more power behind its chop. However, this means it is not the most compact axe despite technically being a ‘hatchet.’ It is quite a bit heavier than some of the other axes on our list, at 1.3lbs, but this is due to its strong chopping power and heavy-duty design. This is worth thinking about if you are going to struggle to handle the extra weight.

In addition to its high-performance, the hatchet also comes with a vegetable-tanned, leather sheath for protection. It is generally very aesthetically pleasing and looks as high-quality as it performs.
