Andrew travels to Sweden to make a high quality knife for using in his Bushcraft. Andrew gets a step by step guide under the tutor of Lars Enander- a renowned blacksmith for 30 years with Gransfors Bruks.
For over one hundred years Gränsfors Bruks has been synonymous with top-quality axes. The work of manufacturing and selling axes is currently carried out by a 15-strong team. 80% of the output is exported to 22 countries.
The experience and skill of the individual smiths is crucial to the quality and feel of the fine axes. Each axe is signed with the smith’s initials as a quality seal and guarantee. Axes are produced here for many different applications such as wood-splitting, woodworking, log-building, hunting and axe-throwing. The forge is located in the centre of the village where you hear the rhythmical pounding as you approach.
