Gränsfors Small Hatchet 26cm 0.35kg 410
The Gränsfors Mini Belt Hatchet is developed by Lennart Pettersson at Gränsfors Bruks in Sweden. Lennart, an axe smith, knife smith, back-packer and fisherman, has created a little hatchet which can be used as an axe and a knife. The poll, slightly rounded, functions like a "priest".
The roots of Gränsfors Mini Belt Hatchet go back many thousand years. In the old days in Europe it was common to carry a belt axe which could be used as a knife or an axe, a valuable tool and a weapon. A nice belt axe was also a symbol of status. In the 16th and 17th century, the French began trading axes with the American Indians. The small Belt Axe, light and narrow, become the "trade axe" and was transformed into the tomahawk.
Gränsfors Mini Belt Hatchet is neither a tomahawk nor a scaled down axe. It is a functional new design by Lennart Pettersson. It is hand-forged of high carbon Swedish steel and tempered at the bit to a hardness of 57 Rockwell. To forge a small axe with the hole in the head requires great craftsman skill.Gränsfors Mini Belt Hatchet is the lightest axe of all Gränsfors Bruk axes.
