The Gransfors Bruk Splitting Maul can be used for splitting very thick and knotty chunks of wood. It is forged and ground to a concave, quite thin blade at the bit. The axe cuts quickly and easily into the wood and then effectively splits it as the broader section pushes apart the wood. Its weight and sturdy poll with bevelled corners make the maul perfect for striking a wedge.
The Splitting Maul from Gransfors Bruk (also referred to a hammer-poll Axe) is a big axe designed for splitting apart large chunks of wood. The axe is forged and ground to a concave, giving a thinner blade at the bit. This design helps the axe to go fast into the wood, splitting efficiently when the thicker part hits and pushes the wood apart. The maul's head is heavier compared to the other splitting axes in the range with the poll specially designed for pounding on a splitting wedge. Length: 80 cm Weight: 3.2 kg
