Excellent tool! Made short work of the oversized oak trunk sections i picked up. Didn’t even need wedges or a maul. Just a few good swings and the long splitter axe drove right through. With a little bit of care, this is a lifetime tool. Not too heavy. Relatively easy to swing. Also, glad i went with Hardwick & Sons. Ordered on a Saturday; was delivered across the country on a Monday. Great family owned small business!

Hi, As titled....outstanding!! Well balanced,(built the way things should be built!) I've used it everyday since received,and is flawless! Splits like a hot knife through butter! Thank you for making a true quality product!

  • The "Long & Large Splitting Axe with Collar Guard" is forged & ground to a concave with a thin, but very tough sharp blade at the bit. This special design helps the axe go fast into the wood, & then split efficiently when the thicker part of the axe pushes apart the wood. The 3" head face of the axe is made of the highest quality Swedish steel available. The axe is excellent for splitting large round chunks of wood. It also has a steel collar guard for extra durability & sturdiness as well. The bottom grip of the 31" long hickory handle is roughened which gives a steady grip even when one's hands are wet or sticky. Also of important note, these splitting axes are not designed for pounding wedges! Only the "Splitting Maul" No. 450 is designed for this! Axe weighs 5-1/2 lb. & includes a grain leather sheath.

       Each axe head is hand-forged from special Swedish steel which is then honed, tempered, & annealed to the perfect hardness by the experienced Gränsfors Bruk Swedish smiths who stamp their initials on the head, creating a one-of-a-kind masterpiece you'll treasure for years to come.
