Fiskars X25/27 for splitting, if only short and small diameter logs, I’d consider the X11, all are superb at the task, and half the weight of most.Thanks all
Mainly wanting one for splitting small logs, have a cheap one which does the job, but want something a bit more decent.
Have a chain saw for anything bigger.
Small forest would probably do it.
Helko get good reviews, and they're German so theoretically should be good quality.
Guy near me has a GB for sale but isn't answering messages.
I'll do what we normally do when we've got a choice of two tools, think about it for a couple of weeks, hit the buy button, then immediately think, actually should I have got the other?
Absolutely, for log splitting both of those axes are a complete waste of Money and also quite useless. A splitting axe shouldn’t even be sharp so pretty much anything will serve well for splitting small stuff, provided it has the correct shape.For splitting I use a maul, the profile is designed for the job and is much more efficient than an axe.
