Great little axe
09-Sep-2014
By
, Milton Keynes
"Very solid kindling axe that does what it says on the tin. Went from a big round of wood to kindling in no time, couple with the wood grenade and up you will have no trouble turning most wood into chips !"

An excellent tool for the job
08-Jan-2014
By
, Sussex
"Although it is slightly counterintuitive, this kindling maker works brilliantly despite the blunt striking edge. The weight of the head and rounded leading edge mean that a firm strike (using the weight rather than excessive speed) will split off kindling from a small log with ease. I have used it to halve small logs (of 4 to 6 inch diameter) and produce kindling for my log burner. Much more effective than my hatchet for this job."

Roughneck Kindling Splitter
08-Mar-2013
By
, East Sussex
"Excellent Product, no its not sharp like an Axe so don't rush off to the grindstone with it!
It does make kindling wood easier by using the dead weight behind the motion. Takes a few mins to find out how to use it best then your off.
Only thing is after 2 weeks in the woodshed the head has started to rust, maybe a wipe down with an oily rag will help."

Just the job
04-Dec-2012
By
, Porthcawl
"I found this almost didn't work on seasoned hardwood but when it came to softwood, particularly if cut into short lengths, a good sharp whacks splits off a piece of kindling very neatly and effectively. It's a good weight and nice length so you can really let the tool do the work."

Works a treat
28-Oct-2012
By
, Glos
"Most of my kindling is made up of old floor boards that I have cut to kindling length. The axe is great for splitting each piece into kindling sticks. Can't understand the other reviews saying they needed to re-grind the edge. I find it works fine and you can get in to a nice rhythm with each stick pinging off round the garage with one firm blow. The only time it bounces off is when you have a knotty bit near the end.
Its pretty heavy so is a good workout for the wrist. A vast improvement on the hammer/chisel I used to use."

Slow to use, unbalanced
14-Feb-2013
By
, London
"Don't understand why they made this. I use a well-balanced little hand axe and cut a month's kindling in no time, chop chop, maybe a second per cut, no effort. This thing is unbalanced, all the weight at the top end. It takes about 3 times as long to cut the same pile and you find you're holding it halfway up the handle. Can't imagine using it again, unless someone pinches my axe. May be best for killing chickens like the other reviewer said."

log splitter
11-Sep-2008
By
, Carlisle
"the axe was a very poor kindling splitter, it was too much like a log splitter and would often bounce back out of the wood without splitting it. The angle of the blade is too big."
