Gransfors Large Splitting Axe

Designed for splitting chunks of wood, "rounds". The thick part of the concave wedge shaped axe head powers apart the grain of the wood. The poll is not designed for pounding on a wedge.

The head weighs 3 1/2 lb. The face is 3". The axe has a 27" hickory handle, circular grooves at the grip, steel collar and a grain-leather sheath.

PerfectionReview by The Domestic Lumberjack
Great for the birch, aspen, and maple I split for the house. Maul is better for the spruce I burn around the campfire.

This thing stabs in deep with its narrow blade and the pops the wood apart as it gets to the flare. This axe promotes speed over power. I'm far less fatigued with a few hours on this over a maul. The

The handle is surprisingly short, but now I love that. Fits my swing perfectly (I'm 5'9"). Anything more than this makes me alter my swing and lose power.

In conclusion: if you only want one axe and you split evergreens get a maul and a few wedges. If you're splitting a lot of birch and maple this axe is king. (Posted on 5/25/2015)
