“The function of the axe is based on the blade’s one-sided design. When the blade strikes a log, it begins to incline, creating torque, which multiplies the splitting force and enables the blade to detach the log wood. Kinetic energy ends on top of the log so the blade will not slip.” – that’s science that is.

  1. You will get even better result to your splitting, if you remove the steel band from the side of the tire. This allows flexibility when you series split many blocks at the time.
    Best regards.
