Gransfors Small Splitting Axe 441
Gransfors Small Splitting Axe 441 w/ Collar Guard
The Gränsfors Small Splitting Axe can be used for medium-sized 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. Splitting Axes should not be used for striking a wedge or as a wedge. Only the Splitting Maul is designed for this.

I have several axes around my property since I have a lot of trees, and spend a fair amount of time chopping wood, whether it is splitting firewood, or bucking downed trees. This axe is clearly used for splitting wood, and that it does like a dream. You really cannot believe just how good this axe is at splitting wood until your try it. Yeah, it costs a bit more then others, but you will soon forget the price tag. You will never forget just how great this axe is every time you pick it up.
