Grandsfor Bruks Shop in Sweden

I saw this on a Blacksmith Facebook page and wanted to share it with everyone.  Pretty cool video of an axe head being forged.

Note: While testing the link it doesn't seem to show, might have to copy and paste into browser.

Interesting hammer set up.  Appears to be a series of shaping moulds in the hammer so the axe head comes out in the shape they want.  Likely much more efficient in production runs.

 Yup, they don't make them like they used to,  but then again ?
