Splitting axes

Key feature of splitting axe is its ability to split logs along the grain, rather than across it. Splitting axe head has a very distinctive shape. It is shaped like a wedge. This shape allows for efficient wood splitting with minimal effort. At Kniland you can find selection of high-quality splitting axes, made from durable steel with sturdy handles.

On the other hand, splitting maul features a strong and tempered butt, that can be used for hammering a splitting wedge. In general, splitting mauls are even heavier than splitting axes.
