    Just wanted to let you guys know that I had the luck today! I was in our local Walmart when I spotted a Fiskars X25 laying alone on the shelf in lawn and garden...... which is mostly Christmas stuff now.

    The Fiskars was all alone and there was no others in sight, nor was there a place on the shelf for it. I was really shocked to see a Fiskars long handled tool in our Walmart as I have looked for the last 3 years out of curiosity and never seen any. It was quite a fluke.

    I searched further in lawn and garden to find the mother-lode to no avail. There was no others anywhere, nor was there a bar code on the particular X25 I held.

    I hunted down a manager and told him the story. I asked how much for the Fiskars and he says..... "what will you give for it?"

    I shoot an offer of $15 as a half joke......... Manager says DEAL! So needless to say I have a brand new X25 for $15.00 (well $16.01 with tax!)




    GOOOOOOD Day to be in Walmart!

    One day I noticed my local Walmart had three or four of the little short handled splitters all covered in dust way back on a bottom shelf in the garden department with no price on them. I have been keeping an eye out there for one with a full sized handle, but no such luck.

    Family Farm and Home has them if you have one of those locally. Maybe Blains Fleet Farm will get them.

    In my local Canadian Tire store yesterday. All the Fiskars on sale @ 25% off this week. Bought the X-11 to go with my X-27. both mounted on my front rack box on the ATV. Tried the little 11, pretty slick little one hander. You can split up a goodly amount of kindling in a hurry with it.
