The environment is a core focus for Gränsfors Bruk, which is why the materials for the axe are chosen with such great care. Everything that is produced requires resources and all these resources have some impact on our environment. The choice of materials is guided by environmental considerations and aims to be positive for the employees and the end users alike.

As part of its green commitment, Gränsfors Bruk uses:

  • steel entirely derived from recycled scrap metal.
  • a hickory handle that is strong and flexible, which increases the life of the handle and thus helps reduce consumption of nature’s resources.
  • vegetable-tanned leather that is free from heavy metals and also is biodegradable.
