    Looks like it would hurt the wrist with the way the handle twists.

    I like this ! Seems to work great.

    Since my first response on this I have been reviewing the movies, pictures etc. of this ax and have come to the conclusion that I might get one....... :)

    I love the way it "catches" the top of the log and does not go all the way down into the split.


    I have contacted the maker of these to inquire how and where I might get one. :)

    Here are some good pictures,

    The guy is splitting soft wood, looks like a pine or some ind of evergreen. When you get it, lemme know how it does on Oak.
    I bet he don't split it all like that & as fast with oak.

    I think it's neat, might want to add it to the arsenal, but don't think it could replace my 6&8lb mauls.

    I split my soft wood small for kindling and spring/fall fires and leave the hardwood big, for the softwood I think it would be great.

    So much depends on the nature of the wood being split, that it's hard to judge. I have some spruce that I'm splitting now that is a dream to work with. I could split that fast with my Chopper II, except that the pieces go flying, so I need to reset them each time. Perhaps that's one of the selling points of this ax.
