The poll is designed for pounding on a splitting wedge. The axe has a 2 1/2" face and a 31" hickory handle and the head weighs 5 1/2 lb. It comes with a grain-leather sheath.

Important: Always wear adequate clothing and protection for your face and eyes!

Not just for men   rating
There are so many heavy, poorly constructed splitting mauls on the market that don’t hold an edge or get the job done. Enter the GB splitting maul. It’s a true work of art and splits better than any maul I’ve ever used. FYI, I’m a 5’-3” woman and appreciate the craftsmanship because it makes a huge difference if the axe stays sharp and the handle is comfortable to swing. Not having as much power as a guy or a taller woman, I appreciate what this maul can do. Now a big GB fan.

If your into splitting wood, this is the maul to get. It's fun to use because of the high quality. The price is high, but it is worth it if you like to split wood.

"It's expensive for an axe, but it's cheap for a knife." That's what I tell people who claim (justifiably) that these axes are expensive. So are Rolexes, BWM motorcycles and Kevlar canoes. The point is they're worth it. Knife-grade steel and hand forging give you a tool that is way more than an's a heavy knife with a handle. They are razor sharp and a joy to use.
