Average Customer Rating:

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.
Gransfors Splitting Wedge reviewed by customer Tom Clyne on 22nd November, 2011
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.
