Gransfors Bruk 460 Splitting Wedge

The Gränsfors Bruk splitting wedge is twisted with a grooved poll, bevelled corners and a hardened tip.  Splitting wedges are used to split really big, knotty or cross grained logs.  Sometimes it may be necessary to use several wedges in parallel.  The splitting wedge is used in conjunction with the 450 splitting maul (see our Ebay store for the listing of the maul) which, with its weight and strong poll with bevelled corners, is suitable for striking a wedge.

Warning – do not use an ordinary axe as a wedge or sledgehammer.  It is not made to withstand the force and therefore become deformed.  Remember that there is always a risk in striking steel against steel.  A fragment of steel could fly off and damage your eye for example.  It is therefore advisable to wear safety googles and protective clothing.  Make sure that that the wedge and the corner of the maul’s poll are kept bevelled.

Gränsfors Bruk is a small Swedish family operated company formed in 1902. Ever since it was founded the company has been making axes and crowbars of the finest quality. The smiths at Gränsfors Bruk are famous for their skill.

Gränsfors Bruk AB is located on the country-side between Gnarp and Bergsjö in Nordantsig County in northern Sweden – 10 kilometers west of the E4, 20 kilometers from the Gulf of Bothnia, between Hudiksvall and Sundsvall, 340 kilometres north of Stockholm.
