Splitting Wedge vs Maul: Some may find log-splitting wedge quite new and have never used it. This lightweight, portable metallic tool is actually great for splitting a harder and larger wood that a splitting maul cannot split. As the name suggests, a wood split wedge is a wedge-shaped piece of metal that can be driven into a medium-to-large wooden block by slamming it with a sledgehammer or axe for easy splitting.
What people say about this Estwing Splitting Wedge
I bought three splitters as a had a huge pile of large logs to deal with and I wasn't sure which would be best. The other two were a standard wedge and a "log bomb". This splitter was better than either of those. You need to put an initial crack in the log with say a felling axe, then insert the splitter and pound it with a maul or similar. The different taperings on the splitter proved very effective at splitting even the toughest of logs and it never got stuck.--- Mr. Andrew Elliott (UK)
Great tool. I split 4 logs in 5 minutes with a couple of donks with a 2and a half pound hammer on a hard surface. This is perfect for me as my log supplier splits the logs big and it's easier for smaller stoves. Will be able to manage all sizes now without investing in the more industrial splitters which is not required for our requirements.--- Mr. Mr. J. Kelly (UK)
I had rounds of wood that I could not split with an axe. For the project I could not justify the large price tag for powered wood splitter and opted to try this product. Impressed with the product. Split the rounds without issue.
