A beautiful hand made, full grain leather collar designed to fit the Gransfors Bruks Hand Hatchet.

As anyone who owns one of these beauties will know, the GFB Hand Axe is a joy to use around the camp for small jobs and comes with a unique textured handle and a swell in the neck larger than most GFB axes.

As a result, mating a collar to this axe can be tricky, especially in a leather that adds a functional amount of protection to the neck whilst still looking pleasing.

In designing this collar I incorporated a lower chin style than my usual guards. This adds a little more strike protection, as well as allowing for a comfortable grip for three of your four fingers when using the blade for finer choked work.

A tough full grain Butt section of Leather in Tan is chosen to provide strength and the perfect minimal stretch for fitting. All edges are carefully skived and burnished with beeswax. Form and function are important, so the 'bikini' design features punches to add articulation and prevent tearing. The lacing design helps accommodate for minor shape differences between GFB Axe Heads whilst keeping the collar flush with the handle though out.

The beauty of this collar is in its shape and simplicity. It features two sweeping grooves either side of the guard, adding grip and a little detail to accentuate the slightly lower chin of this piece.

The collar is formed to produce the form hugging shape around the beard. This makes fitting the collar a breeze and the pictured lacing style can be copied from the images pictured or customised to your liking.

The collar comes with Blonde and Chestnut high strength tiger cord which can be finished with a touch of flame to seal the knot.

Absolutely beautiful craftsmanship. I've bought leather collar guard from different people and this is by far the best work I've seen. The attention to detail is amazing. I asked if he could make me a sheath also and I was in luck. He had thg he same hatchet i did so i sent him a design idea and it was made. I will always use breckland leather for all my sheaths and leather needs. Incredible guy to deal with. I felt luke I have known him all my life. Cannot say enough good things about my sheath and collar guard. Thank you again for your great work !! Dave
