Prior to buying these (I have two), I used hardwood wedges to split large logs, which worked eventually, though they often broke or had to be re-shaped. The Gransfors wedges make splitting SO much easier, and I can tackle much larger pieces of wood without having to use power tools (which I find very satisfying). Keep the edge sharp and give the wedge a decent blow and you'll process even large pieces of wood in no time!
