  Fantastic piece of kit, for harder bits of wood. I normally use a Gransfors large splitting axe for most wood. This is fantastic for complex grain or dried elm….

  I have just split 3.5 cubic meters of hard wood with this Maul. 2 cubic meters were maple and the remaining 1.5 cubic meters were elm. I own a large 3kg rough neck maul and a cheaper 2kg maul from a general hardware shop. The Gransfors Bruks large splitting maul is outstanding I've also used a Fiskars but this Maul is second to none I have ever used. I can't fault it. I wish I had purchased this Splitting Maul when I saw it several years ago. It would have saved me a lot of time and effort.

  Owned a basic splitting Maul which was 'ok' then purchased this handcrafted maul - The difference is unbelievable and the effort into splitting logs is at least half the energy required of the basic maul I owned. Extremely well made and handcrafted, a pure pleasure to work with - well pleased!

  Lovely piece of craftsmanship as I’ve come to expect from Gransfors. Works beautifully on even the knottiest of pieces. A very welcome addition to my woodshed.

  Fantastic axe; arrived shave shape and has made short work of some very knotty hardwood rounds. The finish on the wooden pole is of higher standard from Woodlore than standard ones from other suppliers and is at the perfect length to get a good swing behind the head without to much effort. After heavy use the maul still kept a great edge and with a little bit of regular sharpening is easy to maintain. Anybody who is splitting rounds on a regular basis should seriously consider investing in one as you will soon see the return in your money.
