Gransfors Bruk Mortise Axes are specifically designed for hewing sills and notches in joints. The axe has a long, narrow head, making it easier to work on large logs. The shape enables you to hew a long way down into the notch, where otherwise you would have to use a chisel. With a little practice, the Mortise Axe makes the job faster and more efficient. Includes a sheath in vegetable-tanned leather. For an extra sheath for this axe, order item no: 485-408. For an extra handle for this axe, order item no: 480-406.
