So I bought this for Christmas.... http://www.amazon.com/Fiskars-Super...ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=hi&qid=1230341407&sr=1-1 At the time it was 42 bucks with free shipping. A big part of my decision was watching the video of a guy on here going ape on a bunch of rounds with a splitting axe. I was impressed. Decided to give it a shot. Yesterday I broke out a couple of 30" rounds that the #8 maul just bounced off this summer. Tried the maul on them again, same result.... bounce.... and a wrist that hurt like hell. Break out the Fiskars, and holy hell! Split the round in two. Another swing splits again. Another swing, splits again! This thing is amazing and I would highly recommend it to any able bodied wood burner. I've heard people complain about the short handle, but I actually preferred it, because it gave me much more control on my swings. This thing actually makes splitting enjoyable!!
