    Well I bought a Razorback "Lickitty splitter"? today. It is a 12 pound steel handled monstrosity! :coolgrin: I am unsure if I can handle the weight, (I like the 6 pound tool), but if I can break this handle, I am more man then I think I am! ;-P I don't know what we are going to do for my wife, I know she won't be able to handle this heavy of a tool, but first things first, right. Maybe I'll re-handle the 6 pound maul for her to use. I will try this out and see if I can handle the 12 pound weight. One thing for sure, if I use this maul regularly, I will be one ripped out, bulging figure of a man for sure! (hey.... maybe my wife will like this tool after all? :lol: )

    Thank you, and I believe I will retire this tool. I tried it again and it wasn't near as bad as the first time, but it still laid my wrist over a time or two. I think its the wood I'm working with, I worked with it on some straight grained cottonwood, and it did OK, but as soon as I put it to some tough elm it likes to lay over. My new maul will take care of the problem I hope. Now I need to find a tool for my wife. I think I will re-handle one of the 6# mauls for her, she likes that size maul.
