The Gransfors Bruk 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 Gransfors Bruk Splitting Maul and Gransfors Bruk Splitting Wedge are designed for this.

You get what you pay for this cost a $100 more than an average splitter but it is a piece of art and perfect for my cabin and an incredibly functional
A great quality axe, in forge and haft both.
UPS lost the first one in transit that I ordered, but Appalachian Outfitters did correct the transaction by sending me another axe.
