Splitting firewood is one of those chores that can feel too good to call it work. A well-balanced axe, a well-aimed swing, the sharp pop of a clean split...that's what you get with a Gransfors Bruks Splitting Axe.
Unlike more common mauls, the splitting axe's blade starts off concave and fairly thin, allowing easy penetration into the wood, whereupon the thickening axe head exerts enormous splitting pressure. Gransfors' large splitting axe, with 3-1/2 lb. head, 3" face & 27" handle, is a superb general-purpose firewood maker. A steel sheath beneath the head reinforces the handle against impact with the wood. Note these axes' polls are not hardened for use as sledges.
Important: Always wear adequate clothing and protection for your face and eyes!
