    Serious Quality Splitter

    This splitting axe is wow. The balance is close to perfect, splitting ability is amazing and on par with my fiskars splitter. The craftsmanship of the entire axe is top notch, but edge sharpness and toughness is insane. Definitely heirloom quality axe that my kids will also enjoy. Granted I've only split two cords so far, but all these qualities are apparent after a few swings. Well worth the cost, especially at amazing retailers like Garden Tool Co. I reached out to customer service before purchasing and they were awesome, super helpful. Highly recommend both this axe and this retailer.
