The Gränsfors Froe is used to split wood very finely, for example when making shingles for a roof. The wood to be split is placed under the edge. The user steadies the tool with one hand on the vertical handle and strikes the blade with a mallet using the other hand. The handle is removable, making the Froe easy to transport.. This hand-forged Swedish froe has a 12″ steel blade fitted with an 18″ hickory handle. In use, the thick, blunt blade is driven into the stock with heavy wooden maul or mallet, and the handle is pulled or pushed as needed to direct the split’s runout. The handle is removable, making the Froe easy to transport. Sheath available separately. Weight: 2.6 lbs.
