The Gränsfors Splitting Maul can be used for splitting very thick and knotty chunks of wood. 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. Its weight and sturdy poll with bevelled corners make the maul perfect for striking a wedge. Otherwise, the design is similar to the Larger Splitting Axe, but with a slightly longer poll. The handle has a protective steel collar below the axe head and circular grooves towards the end for an extra firm grip. The Splitting Maul is the heaviest axe produced by Gränsfors Bruk.  

The Gränsfors Splitting Maul can be used for splitting very thick and knotty chunks of wood.

Each Gransfors Axe head is hand-forged from high quality Swedish steel that is honed, tempered & annealed to the perfect hardness by the experienced Gränfors Bruk Swedish Smiths who stamp their initials on the head. Each Gransfors axe is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece you'll treasure for years to come.

Excellent splitting maul

I've been splitting firewood for thirty years with cheap hardware store bought mauls. The Gransfors maul not only splits better than anything I've ever used it makes the job thoroughly enjoyable. It's a pleasure to look at as well.


Great splitting axe. It (almost) does the work for you.

Nice Maul

This is my 3ird Gransfors axe product I’ve purchased over the last decade. Forest Axe, large splitting axe and now maul with a splitting wedge. The handling quality is nice on this maul and I think it was a good purchase. I do like the edge shape/ geometry and head weight of this tool. The Handle length is a good compromise for easy use. It could be longer…with a little larger end swell but completely usable. I have wrapped the last 10” aprox with Jute and epoxy as my 60 yr old hands dont grip as well as they used to. The only criticism I have is the temper/ steel on the striking non sharp side. It is quick to deform if used as a sledge for wedge use. I was using the gransfors wedge to quarter 30” plus red oak rounds. The splitting wedge worked great and the initial stick, far superior to typical American splitting wedge shapes. In a pinch use it this way as advertised but I have discontinued this sledge hammer practice accordingly. Yes, I would purchase again. A good axe lasts a lifetime at least. I simply enjoy splitting with a well thought out and patterned tool.

Nice Maul

It cuts really nice but not sure it's worth the money. I wish the handle was longer.

Outstanding Gransfors Products and Great Service from North River Outdoors

Great Maul and Wedges! The maul splits logs like going through butter---less so of course when you hit a knot, but still easier than my old maul. I have several Gransfors axes and they are worth the price. Dealing with North RIver Outdoors is a pleasure and they make every effort to make the customer happy---thanks for the great service! //Eric in Va Bch
