The Splitting Axe II, has an extra-long Fibercomp handle and weighted, stainless steel head for power when splitting logs and chopping roots. Built to withstand the abuse that regularly breaks wooden-handled splitting mauls and axes, this was made with loggers, arborists, landscapers and homeowners with wood-burning stoves in mind.
The taper of the Splitting Axe II is flared similar to a splitting wedge (a tool used to break a log by being driven into the wood with a hammer). Eliminating the need for a wedge saves the owner an extra step, providing for greater efficiency when splitting logs. It has the capacity to split medium and large-sized logs with a single strike, and its shock absorbing handle helps in prevention of overstrike injury.
Coated with a low-friction surface, the blade of this axe slices through wood without sticking, while its well-engineered head splits wood cleanly. In addition, the blade retains an extra-sharp edge with its hardened forged steel construction. Balanced perfectly for exertion-to-weight ratio, the Splitting Axe II swings with a solid, easy feel. In tandem with the well-engineered head of the axe, this creates such efficiency that the work can be done far faster than expected.
