4. FITTING THE AXE WITH A HANDLE

Once the axe has been sharpened, the axe head is dipped in a water-repellent and rustproofing oil. Once the oil has dried a little, it is time to fit the handle. With the help of a hydraulic press the handle is squeezed into the axe head.

Gränsfors Bruk’s handles are all made of hickory, an excellent wood for this purpose as it is strong and flexible, with long fibres.
