Use a wooden mallet to strike the back of the blade! The froe is used to make wood shingles and to split longer lengths of small diameter logs for various other products like riven lumber, fence posts, garden stakes, split-log ladders and the like. To use the froe, you hold the cutting edge on the end grain of the wood to be split, and then strike the back of the blade with a wooden mallet (Steel hammers will damage the blade!!). The handle is then used as a lever to widen and guide the split through the log. No blade sheath included! Froe 12" Edge length 18" Handle length Weight with handle 2 1/2 lbs
