    Granfors if you don't mind spending the dough.
    Brian.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    Fiskars X27, have split tons of logs with mine, a great axe.

    Yep looking at a fiskars x10 as the wood isn't that thick.
    It will just be for branches mainly.
    So i thought a small axe would do the trick?
    Really don't fancy getting a chain saw

    Gransfors Bruks - http://www.gransfors.com/

    I've got two and had them for about 7 years now- the hunters axe and the heavy splitting maul. Don't think I'll ever need to buy another axe in my life. Great balance but fantastic heads - easy to sharpen using the round stones. Are expensive but I use mine a lot (in conjunction with chainsaw) and never looked back having tried quite a few others. You should be able to find one that suits your need in their range.

    Granfors Bruks. No better axe made. As my hunting mate said about Granfors, why buy a Vw when you can buy a Rolls

    Thats the one I've got. Had it for about five years. I think I got it from one of the Scandinavian stalls at a Game Fair. It's been very good so far.
