Gransfors Bruk Mortise Axe #485

The Gränsfors Bruk Mortise Axe is a specialist axe designed for hewing sills and notches in joints.

The Mortise 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.
