Axes and hatchets are important tools even in this modern world. They are great for starting a fire and chopping down trees or branches, or for use during camping and woodworking. However, choosing the wrong axe can be dangerous:
- Chopping Axe: Used for cutting horizontal logs into segments with several sharp, downward strokes of an axe. These axe blades are able to bite three times deeper when chopping.
- Splitting Axe: Used for splitting wood which means to cut a vertically positioned log with a single downward stroke of an axe to split the wood fibers apart instead of cutting them off. Check out our Fiskars Axe collection.
- Splitting wedge: This portable metallic tool is great for splitting a harder and larger wood that a splitting maul cannot split. A wedge can be driven into a medium-to-large wooden block by slamming it with a sledgehammer or axe for easy splitting.
Loppers and shears come in a range of styles, sizes, and price points; what is best for you depends on the kind of pruning you will be doing, your size and strength, and your budget. Pruning can be heavy and repetitive so it is important to buy the right gardening tools.
