Non veni pacem mittere, sed gladium.
Just got a Fiskar's X7 (36") splitting axe and I love the damn thing. Hollow composite handle tougher and lighter than steel. I recommend people get 2 wedges. They can be the same type, but you'd be surprised how often that extra wedge comes in handy.Good exercise, splitting wood.Greetings from drizzly Pine Grove.
I was just today sawing up some windfall branches for a nice fire tonight. Greetings back at you from just a little ways down the hill, and drizzly as well.
