New Fiskars Splitting Axe


New Fiskars (same outfit that makes the orange-handled scissors) splitting axe that I learned about on CoolTools ( Works so well it makes splitting fun. As opposed to clunky splitting malls I’ve used up until now.

    Cool new tool. Save some strain and labor, it looks to be.

    Lloyd, wishing a healthy and relaxed and joyful Christmas to you and your Beloved (Lesley).

    I much appreciate your work on this blog/your books. It has been a pleasure getting to know you (gosh, I feel I do), through your work here, and to share every so often your smidgens of Lesley’s work.

    It has been educational, enjoyable, and fun learning from your blog.

    Thank you much.

    That is eucalyptus I’m splitting, but not blue gum.

    I see that Fiskars makes several models of splitting axe,
    Fiskars Iso Core 8 lb Maul 36 Inch, 751110-1003
    Fiskars 378841-1002 X27 Softgrip 36″ Super Splitting Axe, weighs 5.74 lbs(?)
    Fiskars X25 Splitting Axe, 28-Inch, weighs 5.34 lbs (?)
    + smaller version 17″
    Wondering which you recommend? Maybe just depends on your height and strength?
    I think the two “splitting axes” have same head, different length handles
    I think the “maul” has bigger heavier head, and different design.

    Fiskars makes several splitting axes.
    Maybe yours is the 28 inch 6 lb?
    Also available 36 inch, appears to have same head, about same weight.
    And a MAUL, that is 36 inch, 8 lbs, with a different head
    so when you do not succeed in split
    and it is stuck in log, you can use a sledge to pound on the maul head
    like it is a wedge
    Wondering if I am strong enuf.

    Stephen, you ought to know better than to think soft soil would have any effect on the axe.
