The Gran splitting axe is a smaller take at the traditional splitting maul, ranging 20” in length and weighing at about 3.3 lbs. It’s not too heavy or too bulky, and can easily fit inside a backpacker rucksack. The make and quality of the axes by Hults Bruk is unique in that they use the best materials and combine some of the finest craftsmanship in the market today. Most axes, especially in the US, are internationally made with cheap materials and struggle to keep an edge for long, let alone being more dangerous to use, because you never know when the thing will break. I trust quality makers and only suggest high quality products on Eye & Pen, and Hults Bruk is one of the best.
