Gransfors Splitting Maul (Click for full size)

Please note this item is currently unavailable until early September 2014

The Gransfors Bruks Splitting Maul is a heavy-duty maul that has been made to an exceptionally high standard by Swedish company Gransfors; hand-forged and made using traditional Swedish methods. Each axe head comes individually stamped with the smith's initials, while the handle features an exclusive embossed Ray Mears logo.

Please note that all Gransfors Axes in the Woodlore shop feature the exclusive 'Ray Mears Bushcraft' logo on the handle and not the Gransfors Bruks logo.

This is two-handed Maul designed for splitting large chunks of wood. Both the axe head and handle length are greater than those of other splitting axes in the Gransfors range.

The poll of the axe is designed for pounding on a splitting wedge, such as the Gransfors Splitting Wedge.

For those of you with an interest in axe-forging or blacksmithing, we recomend taking a look at the Swedish Blacksmithing Book.

Protect your axe head from rust and corrosion by applying a small amount of Camellia Oil to the blade.

Average Customer Rating:

A magnificent axe. Heavy, ideal for splitting logs, both large and small. Well balanced and of exceptional build quality, a truly professional axe.
Gransfors Bruks Splitting Maul reviewed by customer Geoffrey Salt on 4th August, 2014
Purchased this for splitting wood for my wood stove. I've never split wood before but I found this maul to be very easy in use. I had some oak which was 15 inches in diameter and 10 to 12 inches in length and working from the edges in I soon had a nice pile of firewood. The Maul looks well made, nice protection around the head of the shaft and a small grip area at the base section of the handle. While it's not the cheapest Maul on the market, my experience of tools tells me you get what you pay for. I'm a gardener by trade and prefer better quality items and this may well out live me.

For years I've often struggled with a lightweight axe to split logs for my stove. It was often hard work and the shaft was being chewed away by colliding with logs. My new Maul is a much better tool. I purchased it when I had to split some eucalyptus which I believe can be a problem. My maul was just the job and I notice had a protective metal collar around the area chewed away on my axe.

The Gransfors Splitting Maul is the absoulute best at splitting logs. It has done a lot now and still looks good as new.

Excellent service from Woodlore, especially after a mess up by me. I already have a Granfors large splitting axe, which is a superb tool by the way, but need something heavier for the larger pieces of wood. The splitting maul is great, very easy to use with an excellent balance to it which makes it less tiring to work for a prolonged period. It made short work of some big rings of beech and sycamore the other day. All in all a good investment if you tend to spilt your own firewood. Thanks Woodlore.

Pure quality! splits even large difficult logs with minimal effort.

Simply awesome. Splitting logs is very effortless with this even though it is heavier than an axe.

The Aussie tennis open is on right now. These players don't use cheap racquets and for a good reason. This splitting maul is quality. Working with it is so much easier than my old bog standard maul. It has balance, and it seems very light in my hands. If you chop a lot of wood you need to get one of these. You maybe won't win a grand slam but your work rate will definitely go up a few numbers in the world rankings.
Gransfors Bruks Splitting Maul reviewed by customer Al Pooley on 24th January, 2013
I bought this to split wood for the log burner after being given a load of large logs, and struggled to split this very well seasoned and knotty wood with a smaller axe. The difference was amazing. The Maul coped easily with the tough logs and I only had to use a splitting wedge for one particularly tough piece. A tool like this is an investment that should give me many years of use.
Gransfors Bruks Splitting Maul reviewed by customer Gary Miniss on 18th December, 2012
Beautiful craftsmanship that makes chopping logs an art form rather than toil. It is well balanced, retains its edge well and looks great. It even has the initials of the guy who hand forged the head stamped on the side, Anders Morgestton I salute you.

This is an excellent piece of equipment. I decided to buy one after seeing my friend using it expertly to split Oak and Beech logs. Even after many hours work it was still comfortable to wield. It is really up to (continued...)
