Fireside Friend

I have only used it twice but had forgotten what 4lb in one hand felt like. If it weighed 3lb and had 2" more length to the handle it would be about perfect. Even the way it is it's certainly much better than using a common hatchet for making kindling and larger pieces smaller. P.S. Dealing with Hardwick & Sons went extremely smooth and shipping was super fast!

  • The "Fireside Friend" is a special axe/maul perfect for splitting wood. It's special wide head design, overall heftiness, & stout size provide the necessary leverage & power for easy splitting; it is especially great for splitting small to medium firewood, & kindling wood as well. Unlike many other basic axes out on the market which get lodged into the wood, this compact Estwing axe/maul will cut through pieces like butter. Made completely of forged steel from the head through the handle, it's a special axe that packs-a-punch. Made in the USA.

    Since 1923, the Estwing family & its employees have taken pride in designing & manufacturing the world's most durable, comfortable & attractive striking & struck tools. All claw hammers, axes, specialty tools & pry bars are manufactured to the highest possible standards & offer a true value to both tradesmen & craftsmen alike.
