  I've split over 3 cubic meters of logs in two weeks and the axe is still sharp. The weight of the axe head, the extra shield of metal below the head, and the length of the all wood handle make this the perfect axe for log splitting. I would highly recommend it.

  I can't believe I didn't buy this axe sooner! It's worth every penny. Fantastic quality and splits 300mm dia oak rounds so easily. I've been using it one handed too for splitting kindling. 10/10.

  Firstly, the service was fantastic. Axe was generally well packaged but I might suggest that some bubble wrap would also be helpful over such a distance. As expected the axe is very well made; far superior to anything I can buy in New Zealand. Due to the wedge shape of the head it splits rounds of up to 200 mm with one strike. Larger rounds need to be split from the edge first to reduce diameter. Handle is comfortable to hold providing a firm grip. The book that came with the axe provided useful information on use and care of the axe as well as the 20 year guarantee. Axe is highly recommend as is the Woodlore store. Thanks!

  This is a phenomenal splitting axe. I have been splitting huge rounds with relative ease, and every time I step back in amazement. Cannot fault it.

  I have never even used an axe before but the weight and balance of this tool makes it so easy. A sense of relaxation and almost instant gratification - plus a bit of a workout - makes splitting logs for our Arctic cabin fire so satisfying.

  As good as it gets. Beautifully crafted, perfectly balanced and as sharp as an, erm, axe. You'll never regret getting one.

  Superb axe, I've used it for several hours now and am very impressed with its strength and chopping ability. I will only ever buy Gransfors in the future, they are the best axes I've ever used.

  Had this for over two years now - it is fantastic. It's much lighter, yet more gives powerful splitting than the cheap screwfix maul it replaced. Despite the abuse I've given it, the axe head is still perfectly solidly attached, and it's a beautiful object in its own right. Get the Gransfors sharpening stone and keep it sharp!

  I bought this axe to replace my two plumb axes we have in our woodheap. Results go both ways, but mostly good. The axe is well balanced, comes nice and sharp and splits very well. The axe gets a good workout in Australian jarrah, so it gets put through its paces! I found the handle to be about 3 to 5 inches too short for me, but that's personal preference. The cutting edge is too short for the size of some of the rounds we cut, but another point of personal preference. The leather sheath it comes with lasted all of 15 minutes before it had a nice slice in it while putting it back on the axe. It was going on the shelf in the shed anyway so not too worried. All in all a fine tool that is easy to use (once I got used to it), light enough for the wife to use and still splits reasonably well. Worth the money spent!

  Excellent service. I ordered the axe on Sunday and it was delivered Tuesday. The axe itself is very well crafted, comfortable to hold and definitely fit for purpose.
