    I just bought the "Garant Super Splitter Axe" from Home Depot ( $60 )here in the Great White North.
    Wow, is it awesome. I just grabbed some maple (13"- 18") from a local park that was just felled.
    I would just let the weight off the Axe split the wood.

    I have the same model but I'm not so good with my aim so I bought the fiberglass handle. And yes, so far it works well, I only smashed the wedge into the handle 10 times,:bug: she took it well. I do like the weight and the action.

    Sounds like you might want to tape up the handle just under the axe head.......might save you a handle or two intil you get your sights fixed on that axe......

    can you tell me how it compares to a regular splitting maul? I have a crafstman that does well except for this mystery wood that I am trying to split right now. I was looking at the maul from Stil but don't wanna spend $ on a maul that could be like the one I have now.

    Thanks

    My wife got me the Fiskars splitting axe, and it is fantastic! I cannot say enough good about it. Balanced, sharp and easy to handle. The length is a bit short, but very effective. Got it on amazon for $32.
