"Very good value compared to buying the components separately. Performance obviously depends on how well you can swing the maul, but even I had no trouble in splitting logs. Also cheaper than the powered log splitter and better exercise!"
"An excellent set of kit for managing the splitting of logs and chopping of kindling. We cook on a wood burning range and primary heating is a log burning stove, so need to process plenty of logs per winter - and this set makes easy work of it. If the maul won't go straight through it, the grenade will, no matter how twisted the grain."
"Having used an axe to split logs I was unsure whether these would just be other tools which would get a bit of use here and there. I was wrong! The maul makes light work of decent thickness and diameter logs and for the hard and stubborn logs, or even log branches, the grenade really does blow them open. It is very difficult if not impossible to get stuck and has already split so hefty logs. Much cheaper in the set and the price is well worth it for the maul and splitter alone! If you are not sure about buying a grenade or a regular wedge, forget the wedge and get the grenade!"
"I have had a wood burner for 12 years plus and used my normal axe from my joiners tool box, Decided to go for this set and find it effortless, splits logs with ease. 12 wasted years splitting with the wrong axe."
"This is a great value set and the splitting Maul is fantastic. It makes splitting log effortless and is very comfortable to handle. The splitting grenade is good for longer logs and the sledge head on the back of the maul works well. I only gave it 3 stars on reliability as I've only just bought it."
"only purchased this set on 24th dec, but had to open box up and give it a swing. on first view all appears good quality. the splitting maul feels well balanced and good to hold and coped well with clean knot free logs. some knotty timber with branch junctions needed more splitting effort so the splitting bomb was utilised using the reversed maul as a hammer. superb results. did not try small axe, but am sure it will be fine for light splitting and kindling. l felt at this stage it is too early to include a reliability rating, but all look well made."
"So far spent half a day splitting all sorts of size pieces. The grenade is great for splitting apart the really big bits - up to 2ft dia and 10 inches thick, using the back of the maul which has a sledge hammer head. Then used the maul for breaking into smaller pieces (though grenade works too). If you're swinging at the log, it's a lot easier if you hit it just on the edge. If it gets embedded but doesn't split, just whack it with a hammer a few times and it'll split. Great workout too! Haven't used the axe yet, but it seems pretty sharp."
"Bought a pallet of split logs to find they were too big for my inset log burner. The maul splits them in seconds and after using my old blunt hand axe, with wooden handle and constantly loose head, couldn't believe the efficiency of the small axe for kindling. Still got all my fingers and can't wait to use the grenade!"
"A great set of 3 tools ideal for those people who have wood burners and want to chop their own wood. The splitting maul works a treat compared to previous heavy cutting axe and when the logs are too twisty the wood grenade does the trick. My only comment would be it would have been good to have had a kindling axe instead of a standard axe. All items are very good quality and feel solid."
"I decided to purchase this set after reading all the positive reviews. I've not used the small axe much but the log splitter and maul have really been put through their paces and performed very well. I highly recommend this product."
