How to find the perfect axe

Once you’ve got your list of options, you need to check which axe is best for you in reality. Watch the guidance video to find out how to do that. 

Splitting axes

Watch how the wider head and specialized blade geometry of our splitting axe quickly forces dense wood apart during tough vertical cuts. In addition, a low-friction blade coating helps keep the swing strong for more instant one-strike splits.

Chopping axes

See just how quick and effective cutting wood can be with a chopping axe featuring a sleek, perfectly balanced design with a special low-friction coating and an ultra-sharp edge. Streamlined for horizontal cuts into trunks and branches, this axe will help you to take it down and section it up faster. 

Chopping axes

Safe splitting technique

The safe usage of axe requires correct splitting block height, sturdy standing position and controlled splitting technique. NOTE: Always wear safety googles, long trousers and high shaft shoes or boots.

How to safely split logs

If your splitting block is too low and you miss the log, you’ll have less time to react. This is because of the shorter distance and the direction of the axe swing. These factors increase the potential of serious injury to your legs, so always make sure your splitting block is high enough. 

How to sharpen your axe

The easiest way to sharpen your axe is by using our Xsharp sharpener. Firstly, choose the angle for your axe blade, and then do between three to five even, horizontal strokes. To make sure the blade is sharp enough, simply see if you can carve a mark on the surface of a log.

How to split logs with one hit

To ensure you split your logs faster and more efficiently, be sure to avoid brank marks. Where possible, always target on cracks that are already visible. This way you’ll get a lot more one strike splits. 

How to use a sappie for chopping

It’s easy to tire your arms and back when splitting logs. By using your sappie to lift logs onto the block you can save yourself from unnecessary aches and strains. Once you need to use your axe, you can simply stick your sappie into the side of the block.
