Awesome little workhorse   rating
This is my third Gransfors Bruk. I have their Scandinavian Forest Axe, Splitting Maul, and now this hatchet which I got with the intention of using it for camping, hunting, etc. (basically whenever I could use a smaller more universal version of the two axes I already had). It balances awesome in the hand and feels so light. If you're looking for a hatchet to pack along with you, make this the one.

Perfection   rating
The outdoor axe is the size of a small hatchet, but that’s about where the similarity stops. This thing arrives wicked sharp and does an incredible job of turning just about any size log into kindling if using the right technique. Superbly crafted, it just plain feels good in your hand. Small and light enough to backpack with. Doubles as a knife or cutting tool. An all around survival tool that will last a very long time. I love this axe.
