    Dude! You channeled Wranglerstar with this one! Gransfors Bruks is indeed a
    proper axe.

    I’m cringing watching you use these axes. I’m no expert, but I’ve seen a
    lot of videos from ace experts, like Ray Mears showing proper technique
    that will make it a lot safer and I can see the difference. For one thing,
    for many of shots here, you should’ve been on your knees instead of
    standing up when using the smaller wildlife hatchet so that if you miss,
    the blade would hit the ground rather than your foot or shin. Also, most
    off the experts will put a log in between themselves and what they’re
    chopping so that if they miss, the log will take the hit. Please learn the
    proper axe technique so you don’t end up hurting yourself. After seeing how
    you use an axe, I can see why you may prefer using large blades instead.

    I’m glad I brought my GB axes a year ago. After this video, they are going
    to be sold out for months.

    You might want to check out Hultafors as well. They are Swedish too and
    been around since 1697. I would say the quality is on par with Wetterlings
    and Gransfors Bruks. I’ve been very happy with mine, You can’t go wrong
    with any of them. All of these are going to be more expensive than
    anything from Condor or any of the other cheaper offerings, but you do get
    what you pay for and you want the quality. Trust me!

    I JUST RECEIVED THIS AXE Husqvarna Carpenter’s Axe. IT IS MADE BY
    WETTERLINGS MARKETED AND SOLD BY Husqvarna FOR ONLY $61 DELIVERED TO MY

    MONEY. THANKS FOR THE GREAT VIDEOS ANDD REVIEWS.

    TOU DO NEED TO PUT SOME TIME INTO MAKING IT JUST AS GOOD AS THOSE OTHER
    AXES, BUT IT IS LESS THEN HALF THE COST AND I LIKE DOING WORK TO MY GEAR. I
    TOUCHED UP THE BLADE TO MAKE IT SHAVING SHARP. I ALSO SANDED AND STAINED
    THE HANDLE WITH BOILED LINSEED OIL. NOW ITS EVEN BETTER THEN THOSE OTHR
    AXES!!!

    Glad to see you back in the Wilderness. Another great video Nutnfancy,

    I see you on these adventures and cannot help but think there goes a life
    well lived and wish that it was mine.

    shit man, Never been this early to one of his videos…I feel uncomfortable
    and lonely.

  12. Far East Survival says:

    These companies are located in the same city across the street from each
    other. Wetterlings was purchased by Gransfors Bruks several years ago. They
    decided to operate Wetterlings as a separate company. I have axes from both
    companies and I can’t tell the difference between them. They are both
    highly recommended.

  13. HORIZONS says:

    Old time woodsman would pack their axe heads and craft their handles once
    they arrived at location. It’s one option to consider. Also, if rust is an
    issue, you could soak the axe in vinegar (or use other methods) to create a
    forced patina which will help protect the steel. It’s always important to
    practice safe chopping and splitting techniques, too. The axe is a
    wonderful tool if used properly and far exceeds the workload of any knife.
    With an axe, you can work smarter, not harder. For larger cross cuts, a
    folding buck saw (you can even make your own) is a valuable asset, saving
    you energy and time. To clean your tools you could use sand and water, then
    oil, or if you have salt handy you could rub it down and rinse it off
    before oiling. This also works great with cast iron cookware. Best of luck!

    It was great you mentioned wranglerstar when I met you at shot show. It’s
    even better to see you reviewing axes in the spirit of wranglerstar. Love
    the outdoor vids.

    Ok why can’t I find TheNutnfancyProject channel? Link???

    If you don’t mind a little bit of profiling and handle refinishing, Helko
    North America offers some great stuff. When done, they are excellent and
    very much budget friendly. I wish HNA had axes with a dayton or a hudson
    bay head with about a 23″ handle. Their boy’s axes and full size axes are
    my favorite though. Their mauls and hatchets look excellent as well. I’ve
    moved away from my Gransfor’s because of the hollowish head profile, but I
    still keep it. I’d like to get my hands on a Hultafors, too bad Husqvarna
    axes (rebranded Hultafors) only come in a couple sizes. I sure wish I could
    throw some money at Mueller splitting axes and mauls. I don’t prefer
    Council Tool’s soft steel or aluminum wedges, but their prices are low and
    their handles are well shaped, same with their heads. The CT Velvicut line,
    Gransfors, and Wetterlings offer out of box usability, but that’s what you
    are mainly paying for as opposed to the other axes mentioned. I haven’t
    handled a Mueller yet though, so no comment there on out of box usability.

    Lovin’ the vid right up until the sales pitch asking for peeps to buy ’em
    off the table . That was a bit of a bummer. Thinking during the watching
    how cool your collection was. Still really liked the vid but bit of a hard
    landing at the end. 

  18. ZombiedustXXX says:

    Great vid as usual, Nutn! I have searched to see if you ever had a review
    of the classic US Air Force survival knife, but I have come up short more
    than once.

    If a vid is available for the US Air Force survival knife, can someone
    please post the title. If no such review exists, I would love a Nutnfancy
    review.

  19. DEECEE's ADVENTURES says:

    You should take a knee with a axe that short on a cross cut, but again in
    wilderness like this you should have the Scandinavian forest axe. It’s
    safer and your back won’t hurt so bad, and it’s less then a pound more.

  20. gearsNtools says:

    axe might not be the best at some things but it can certainly get a lot
    done. This video got me thinking about the book hatchet! 

  21. Joe Blazer says:

    40 bones and i can have a freshly hung, old American axe as good or better
    than these pretty boy boutique tools… with some local history and
    personality thrown in for free.. sorry nutn, you didnt sell it well enuff
    for me to think its better than mine, much less the best. much noise about
    yourself mostly, and footage that should have preceded a shin chop.. 

  22. Thomas Paine says:

    I just want to thank you for this vid. I’ve always grown up with a love of
    the outdoors. I was a scoutmaster for several years, solo backpacker, and
    grew into woodsmanship. Since I have 4 little ankle biters, grad school
    debt and a little pop up to keep everyone happy, but getting out into the
    backcountry is still in my blood. The high rocky mountains are so pretty
    and I can’t wait to backpack with my kids. This vid brings back the fever.
