    I haven't had any luck with the "daily catch." I did fill the product request form, though. Maybe I'll get lucky that way.

    Buy w/ confidence, great product great customer service. I put this chip in mine. Sent a picture to Fiskars and received a brand new ax. I keep the old one in the truck and just used it to quarter 4 28-30" maple rounds roadside so I could lift them. No problem. No one tool does everything but these sure do a lot. I have a number of Fiskars products.

    I actually went to the site to look at something else. It was late in the morning. Decided to take a look and the "daily dose" was sitting there tempting me.

    I named it that since they are only putting up one axe a day.

    Nice deal. Sears and Amazon have been around the $41 range.

    Really? They are keeping them at that price and just making one available per day?

    Is the Friskars X27 the same thing as the super splitter that the thread mentions?

    Hmm, I need to get one of these. I enjoy splitting wood, and this thing may help me enjoy it even more. Thanx for the heads up.

    Good luck with the elm. That stuff is supposed to be awful to split.

    Oh yes, I have already split about 2 cords of it with my old 8# maul, sledge and wedges. Red elm is hard and stringy but not as bad to split as Locust. When it comes to Locust, I rent a gas powered splitter to do the job.

    My X27 arrived on 12/09. Already split 1 p/u load of dead Shagbark Hickory I dropped that weekend before & almost 1 1/2 cord of green 30%Red & 70%White Oak (from 25" to 34" diameter) that my tree service contact dumped in my backyard last Thursday 12/12.On the biggest ones I still had to quarter them with sledge/wedges or the saw first however.Am very impressed with it so far,much better than the X25 which I'd been using since May 2011.The X27 will get grabbed first from now on,the X25 will stay in the shed.

    Still have 5 rounds left to process,will finish up in the next few days hopefully.

    I ordered the black one back on the 14th, originally the tracking said the 20th was the delivery date. Then when it didn't show up on the 20th, I checked tracking again it had changed to the 24th. I live in Ohio and could have drove to Chicago and back in 2 days. Now it looks like I'll be splitting wood on Christmas Eve.. if it even shows up tomorrow.

    I have no idea, this will be the first Fiskars product I have purchased. I have plenty of wood to split, so if it comes tomorrow, I'll chime in on how it performed.

    Well, well, it finally showed up this morning.

    And Old man winter dropped an inch or 2 of snow last night, and it is a balmy 20 degrees outside.. At least the sun is shining. I'm thinking after lunch I will don the bibs and attack the wood with the Fiskars in hand.

    Worked like a charm!

    Fiskars spitter1.jpg

    Finished up the elm and had some other wood to split, a lighter colored and somewhat stringy, not sure if it was maple or not. Chewed up about 3/4 of a cord in about an hour. Only once did I need to swing it over my shoulder; pretty darn sweet.
