Customer Questions & Answers

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

Asked by: Chimpgrip
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."

Use of Fiscars X25 splitting axe

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.

Weight?

How much does the head of this axe weigh? I notice Fiskars also makes a 6 pound model. What's the difference?
Asked by: boulderskies
Don't know about the head itself, but this tool weighs 5 lb 6 oz, and its balance point is about one and a half inches down the shaft below the head.

28 in. X25 Splitting Axe is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 130.

I've only used it twice so far to split about a quarter cord each time. The first time it took some getting use to (I have never split wood previously), mostly directing the axe and perfecting my aim and control. The 2nd time around I was splitting with ease. The length is perfect for me, it's a really light, yet powerful. I know I will enjoy it for a very long time. It's also nice having the Fiskars lifetime warranty as well.

Had a longer 36" axe with a plastic handle that was breaking from hitting logs long and hitting handle which broke quite easily. This one is shorter giving me more control and is sharper and does twice as good a job on logs in the 9-16" diameter range...perfect for what I need!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 45 year old chick can finally split wood Totally love this axe. I had a tree taken down and I needed to split wood up for wood-burning stove. I'm a single mom who is 45. So I'm proud to say that I can now split my own wood!!!! Great axe. I'm 5'-10" and the 28" long handle was perfect for me to swing and not too heavy. :)

Just received this axe and went out and split about a half face cord of wood. Very pleased! This is splitter is comfortable to use and doesn't require a lot of muscle to use effectively. It enabled me to have a lot of fun getting the job done. Being well coordinated, I at first gravitated toward the 36" model, not wanting to pass up the additional force I could generate with it. But in the end I bowed to the fact that I'm 64 and two inches shorter than I used to be and chose this 28" model. Now that I've used it, I don't feel this shorter version is a compromise at all. Very satisfied.

The product is a great looking product, super sharp, and did split the wood with ease, but I was not comfortable using it from the first and only day I used it. The handle is much shorter than what I usually use, and my opinion is, the shorter designed handle makes it a bit more dangerous, putting the impact with the wood closer to your legs and feet. I had a close call (a few stitches in my leg) and said that's it and refused to use it any more. While the curved end on the handle may intend to keep it from sliding out of your hands.... I believe the curved end on the handle makes the ax head want to recoil back toward you after impacting through the wood. I will be taking this product back and sticking with a standard length maul.

But, doesn't tire you out as fast since it is lighter. I definitely suggest splitting on an elevated surface. I use one of the larger rounds to split on. I still have to use the maul on some of the tougher pieces. Overall, I'm pleased with how effective it is. The non-stick coating did not last that long. I've probably split 1.5 to 2 cords of mixed Oak and Pine with it. The coating is mostly worn away from the splitting surface of the head.

I am 52 years old and 5' 04" tall. I purchased this axe based on other reviews. Many people reviewing this axe mentioned that due to the unique length of the axe, it is good choice for short fellas like me. Long story short...... This axe is great! Prior to using the axe, I watched a few videos on how to split wood and I also asked a few "experts" for some tips. I am able to completely split most logs in 3 or 4 swings. The logs that I am splitting are about 18" in length and about 12" in diameter. Although I do not have prior experience, I find the axe to have excellent balance. The length of the handle and the weight of the blade seem to be perfect. There is no vibration through the handle and the grip is excellent. Compared to the price of some other log splitting axes, the Fiskars X25 is a great deal. I would highly recommend this axe to anyone looking to split wood, no matter how tall or short they are. 5 stars. Buy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good small axe Very good edge will split 12" logs pretty easy. I have cross cut 4" branches with 1 swing. But you get into the knotty and larger logs you will have trouble. I did end up with the Fiskars maul and it does the job well. Keeping the axe for the 2nd,3rd,4th ect. splits. It is light and easy to handle.
