The Gränsfors Large Splitting Axe can be used for splitting all types of firewood. It is forged and ground to a concave, quite thin blade at the bit. The axe cuts quickly and easily into the wood and then effectively splits it as the broader section pushes apart the wood. The handle has a protective steel collar below the axe head and circular grooves towards the end for an extra firm grip. The handle is available in two forms, a shorter and a longer version.
Splitting Axes should not be used for striking a wedge or as a wedge. Only the Splitting Maul is designed for this.
I recently received a GB splitting axe. The axe is extremely well made with good grain orientation in the handle. I’m currently applying several coats of linseed oil to the axe and have not used it yet. The axe came scary sharp and I’m eager to chop some round!
