After many years splitting wood with various implements of torture, a friend of mine, over a pint in the village pub, was waxing lyrical about Fiskars splitting Axes. So I pushed the button on an X27, what a revelation! I was near the point of getting a Log Splitter, but the Fiskars makes the job so easy…….I have also bought the X21 and X7. I know they are not a “traditional” design………But what a piece of kit! I cannot recommend them enough.
