Further Information

A Gransfors Bruks Splitting Wedge is a traditional Swedish forged-steel splitting wedge to be used in conjunction with the Gransfors Splitting Maul.

Each wedge comes individually stamped with the smith's initials.

Twisted for maximum splitting, with ground poll edges.

Please note these wedges should not be struck with the poll of any axe that has not been tempered specially for this purpose.

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.

  Solid professional kit, and now in regular use splitting all those twisted grain knuckles that are back-breaking, even with a decent maul. Thank you Gransfors and Woodlore, great service.

  This is an excellent piece of equipment and accompanies the “Gransfors Splitting Maul”. It makes splitting lengths of wood up to one meter much more easier than just using a traditional straight wedge. The twist in the body between the blade and the head ensures an gradually increasing pressure action on the wood each time the wedge is hit. On the third or fourth hit you can hear the wood creaking, splitting and tearing as the log splits seconds after your last strike. The “Splitting Maul” blade end can then be used to slice through any final resistance to part the halves. If you have enough cash spare buy a second and you can do some serious work. A professional tool at a sensible price.
