Welcome to Gränsfors Bruks Axe Forum

For all of you who want to read about, ask questions about or discuss axes.

The purpose of the forum is to create a meeting place for all of us who love to discuss axes. Here you can discuss how to choose an axe, how to use an axe, how to take care of an axe, how to sharpen an axe, or anything else related to axes. You can also discuss Gränsfors Bruks Forging and Log-Building courses, or how your visit to the axe factory was.

You are welcome to read what others have asked and answered in different subjects. In order to set a question, comment on what others have written, or “like” what others have written, you must first create a user account.



To easily find what others have written or to place your question in the right category, the forum is divided into six categories:

  • Choosing an axe: Here you find questions of what type of axe to choose, among all the different models and versions available.
  • Using an axe: Here you find questions of how to use axes at different occasions.
  • Axe care: Here you find questions about how your axe should be stored or sharpened, how to change the handle of the axe, or other questions related to axe care.
  • Courses: Here you find questions about Gränsfors Bruks Forging and Log-Building courses, that is held by Gränsfors Bruk.
  • Visit Gränsfors: We have a lot of people who visit us to see how we forge our axes. Under this category you can read, write and ask questions about your and others´ visit.
  • Open Forum: In addition to the above categories, there is an open forum where you can read, write and ask questions about a subject that does not really fit in the other categories above.
