Fiskars Splitters

Recommended Posts

I've been eyeballing the splitting axe and the splitting maul that Fiskars makes. I've seen them at Home Depot and was wondering if anyone has any experience with them. I'm intrigued by the design of the head. The handle seems a little light, but if I know Fiskars, they're going to put their name on good products only. Any feedback?

I've had one for about 5 years now, it rocks! And anyone who's been camping with me and tried it is usually impressed. The other axes or hatchets that make the trip rarely get touched after they use the splittin maul. The logs will just pop apart.

I think it's a safety tool, when people start swinging dem hatchets and axes around, well, it can lead to mishaps. We bring 30" bowsaws for cutting, and the Fiskars for splitting, that's my rule for use, splitting only, no chopping with it. The handle may be light but it seems industructable. Seen a buddy completely miss the log with the head, and hit it with the handle. The handle bent and sprung back, I'm positive that blow would have snapped any wood handle. I think Gerber makes one as well these days, and it might be cheaper.

    • Good yo hear from you again!  Hope your search for property goes well and your time in stand is fruitful.
    • Nice pics jbell! That is a nice yellow garden spider you got there.
    • I had a nice size garden spider on my garage door. It stayed there about 3 weeks. Had a mate who I assume did his business and met his doom. I finally needed to open the door so I safely caught it and let it go in the woods near our house.  Her body is about an inch long. Probably about 3 inches total.       
    • 😄i have several "pet" spiders around the deck and garage. sometimes when i'm bored i swat flies with the swatter and feed them!!!!!!
    • its wierd, my cukes the stems from the ground out look like they were died and dried out but the ends were green, plenty of flowers and producing.quite frankly, i got 2 medium size boxed of cukes in the frig i need to use or give away. i know this isnt right to say, i'm getting cucumbered out.   same with the peppers, i had to look thru a jungle to find them most of the summer as the cukes exploded and basiclly covered them. i have enough peppers for what i need, froze some for chili, and have eaten my share. and again there were no small ones coming in to keep them in the ground to make it till first frost.   my tomatoes, the ones i may be pulling soon are running out of tomatoes worth while . 
    • That's too bad, did your garden get dried out at some point? You had a pretty good start to the season and had a jump on my garden.
    • I assume you burned your deck down immediately after taking these photos.
    • Never been a big fan of webspinners, but those orb weavers are cool to look at and harmless. And this is the time of year that you seem to see them.   More of a fan of Wolf and Jumping spiders myself.  
    • Cool!  Did you take a picture when you smashed it? That big som-abatch could use a 22 through it! 😘
