  • Designed for maximum efficiency to give you more one-strike splits
  • Perfected balance and power-to-weight ratio increases swing speed to multiply power, much like an aluminum baseball bat
  • Ultra-sharp blade with a low-friction coating and bevel convex blade geometry disperses wood from the blade for clean splits
  • Stronger-than-steel FiberComp handle won’t break through overstrike, and the permaHead insert-molded axe head will not loosen or fly off
  • Powerful splitting axe is a great choice for anyone who needs to split medium- to large-sized logs quickly

I'm 5'6'. Would the X27 be too long for someone my height, or would the X25 be my better choice?

Answer: 
This is a common question given the different sizes available. Fiskars answers the question by telling us to go the store and try it out, which would be a supremely reasonable recommendation except for the fact that according to this site it's "not sold in stores."

Answer: 
I am the same height as you and the X27 has been the best splitting axe I have owned. I also use the X25 for small logs and large branch wood. In the past seven years I have averaged splitting about 6 cord per year by hand.

Answer: 
I am just under 5'4" and the x27 would be too long. The literature suggests the x27 is for the taller than average. You would have to stand further away from the wood with an x27, since the length isn't compensating for your height. Maybe that would lessen the force or control of your axe strikes.

Answer: 
Thank you for contacting Fiskars. This is a difficult question to answer as everyone has a different comfort level and style of swinging an axe. The best way to know for sure would be to go to the store and feel it out. The X25 will more than likely be a better fit for you, but really you should get it in your hands to try it out.
Please feel free to call us with any further questions at 866-348-5661 8-5

Answer: 
Hey Chimpgrip.
The x25 would work best for you. It would offer you better control splitting large logs. The x27 would give the proper cutting angle to a taller person.

Use of Fiscars X25 splitting axe

This question is from 28 in. X25 Splitting Axe
Asked by

Laurel, MD
July 7, 2013
For really stringy wood if first strike doesn't split log, is it reasonable to pound on back of axe head with a sledge hammer, or might that damage the axe? The tree I am trying to split is really nasty .. has to be peeled from the edges and the core is nearly impenetrable. Not sure what kind of tree it is.

Answer: 
I wouldn't recommend using the X25 for that. Sounds like you'll want a dedicated splitting wedge and a nice sledgehammer. Actually, given what you said about the wood, sounds like you might want to rent a log splitter. Elm, I'm guessing. Good luck!

Answer: 
striking the axe with a sledge is specifically warned against in the instructions for this axe. it may work, but the manufacturer clearly does'nt want you doing it. I just keep swinging away with my X25 and even the most outrageous, narliest stump of a log will split. I don't swing harder, just hit it again and again till it gives up.

Answer: 
Although tempting, my first instinct is to let it season a while and find something else to split. I had a dead tree that came down in Hurricane Sandy that I sectioned off right away, and couldn't split 6 months later that split like a dream a few weeks ago. Better to wait than ruin the axe. But that's me...

Answer: 
I would not suggest hitting the backside of the axe, it will damage it. If possible, make your splits to the side of the log you are splitting not in half. At the end of the day if it is really kntty, you have your work cut out for you. No pun inteded.

Answer: 
You really need to identify the tree.
Eucalyptus needs to be split soon after cutting it down.
Oak needs to cure (dry out) for at least a year.
I've used a sledge hammer gently if the splitter is stuck.
Yes, hitting it hard will eventually damage the maul.
Also you say axe, is it a splitter, a maul, or an axe?
You just maybe using the wrong tool for the job.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 103 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LOVE this axe It is very lightweight and well balanced. The axe head wedge shape and sharpness slices thru wood with usually one swing. Takes little effort to swing. I find I can split more wood without getting tired or sore muscles. Glad I read reviews before using. It splits so easily, it would be easy to accidentally swing thru and cut a leg. I took a light first swing with legs apart so it would go between if followed thru. It split cleanly and followed thru. So be careful first time users. It really does slice like butter. Also looks like it will be very difficult to break the handle off. Time will tell on that. I've broken most of my axe handles. July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best axe ever I split wood and throw a ball about the same - no aim. This axe makes up for some of my poor form. As long as I don't hit myself, it manages to get a piece of wood split. It's lighter weight than others, stays sharp, and works like a champ. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by love this axe The X25 and the X27 are basically the same axe, but the X27 has a longer handle. Despite having a hollow plastic handle the axe feels balanced. The handles are really durable too. I have beat them both, and they are holding up. I am 5' 10" and prefer the control of the shorter X25. Despite having a hollow handle, they feel really balanced. July 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Splitting axe Fantastic product. Work better than I expected. Splits wood easier then any other axe I have used. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Axe Razor sharp edge, well balanced, & made. I received online purchase in a wk. Went splitting right away & logs flew apart. Some took a few more blows but made it through. Being a light 6lb head, you can work for hours. The balance and design of this axe make splitting a breeze not a chore. July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome This awesome Axe actually works. Looks good. And splits good. The 28" handle is perfect length for 5'4" person. May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by High quality splitting maul Look and feel leaves a good first impression. Splits wood with ease. The quality is obvious. May 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Really surprised It may be a bit early to leave this review, but I will leave one now anyway. I burn wood as a supplemental heat in the winter and have purchased firewood from individuals and realized I had several trees on the property I could cut down. Last year I dropped a massive red oak, then cut and stacked it. Splitting the wood with an axe or maul was real work. I brought this axe home and went to the wood pile. The first swing, I was swinging it like a maul, it sliced through the wood with ease and it came to rest in the ground between my feet! So I eased up and split several pieces without even thinking about it! So far, well worth the money. January 19, 2016
