Handmade in Germany
This miniaturized version of the Spaltaxt delivers surprising power. It is a compact German style splitting axe designed primarily for lighter splitting work. The dual wedge head delivers highly effective strikes that increase splitting efficiency and prevent the head from becoming stuck or pinched in logs. The 2 ½ pound head and short 20 inch handle are perfect for camping, splitting small firewood, and stocking wood stoves. This axe is perfect for campfires and occasional fireplace duty in the living room.
