This sheath is designed specifically and exactly for the Gransfors Bruks Small Forest Axe. It is made out of full-grain vegetable-tanned cowhide and then stained with the appropriate color. The leather is treated with Fiebings Mink Oil (available here from us).

The construction of the sheath starts with three pieces of leather: the main body of the sheath, the securing strap and the welt. The main body is folded over a welt that is inserted between the two folded halves which prevents the blade of the inserted axe from cutting the stitch that is placed to hold the sheath together. The sheath is then hand stitched and steel rivets are placed at the corners to reinforce the body. The axe head blade, when placed in the sheath, is prevented from touching the rivets because of the welt. The retention strap is then secured with a steel rivet and a steel snap is added for easy on/off action. This sheath is built to last, and quality hand made in the USA (Spokane, Washington). Finish to the edges of the leather is applied for aesthetic appeal. Watch how this sheath is made on YouTube:

    I didn’t think my forest axe could be any more complete, I was wrong! This sheath is the finishing touch! Gorgeous sheath, tough leather, perfect fit! Great prompt customer service! Low waste shipping packing material. Highly recommended!

  4. Mark

    Excellent tool and stitch work on very rich grained leather. The cover fit perfectly and the strap only had to be stretched a bit – this sheath compliments the forest axe nicely.

    I was reluctant to replace the sheath on my GFB splitting maul and small forest axe. I wanted to keep my investments as “stock” as possible but the quality just wan’t there. As soon as I held these in my hand, all that went away. These are the sheaths that are meant to pair with GFB. GFB are expert axe makers. ROG are expert leather workers. Thank you for such a fine product worthy of a fine axe.
