I'd throw that in the woods to rot! That is a hand splitter's nightmare.

Someone pointed out a potential shortcoming of the Fiskars - it needs to be sharp to be effective.
This makes sense for a tool that relies on a sharp edge and design to be effective but means maintenance. Personally, I've got too many things with to many moving parts as it is without something else to work on.
A well swung 8lber is a high speed wedge and always and works for me, lives outside and only gets sharpened when I happen to have it near the grinding wheel( every 3-4 years)
I sharpen my Fiskars tools after about 2 or 3 cords are split. Whether they need it or not.
