Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Frank X11 2.7 lb. 17 in splitting axe
Splitting axe is excellent quality. The only problem that I noticed is that when splitting logs the axe head weight with the both side angle wedges plus the 17 inch handle means you really need a lot of force to split a log. If you do not use all the force you can the axe head with the wedge sides will pop out of the log. Also there is only so much force you can put out on a 17 inch length ax handle. SO WHAT I DO I PUT THE AXE HEAD IN THE MIDDLE OF THE LOG AND HIT IT THE BACK OF THE AXE HEAD WITH A NON METAL DEAD BLOW HAMMER. THIS WORKS VERY WELL AND DOES NOT HARM THE AXE HEAD.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brian Perfect for medium duty
This axe simply murders seasoned firewood. I use this particular model to double-split larger pieces of pre-split firewood for a better firebox fit and burn. It also comes in handy on small jobs like cutting kindling and chopping branches. Well-designed, super light weight and the sheath is an added bonus as the blade is soft. It usually splits with one strike, and NEVER gets lodged. I haven't used it to split any full diameter logs, but I'd imagine it would work just fine, although the longer-handled models would most likely be better-suited.

The Fiskars X11 is a well made, tough, functional product at a very reasonable price. This particular model though made for splitting could be very useful for many other tasks around the house or campsite.

This is an amazingly sharp axe, it does exactly what it says it does... splits wood in a supper efficient manner. The only thing you have to be careful of is "ITS SHARP" I mean kitchen knife sharp! I brushed my finger against the blade on one of the chops and sliced it pretty good. Flip side of that is it makes quick haste of your wood. Not sure how long it will hold that amazing edge, but so far I've chopped a few dozen oak logs with it and no issues at all. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a great wood splitting axe. I bought the longer handle one as well for larger logs. Love that one too.

Axe is good weight to swing but head is an aggressive spitting wedge so with short handle, wood must be easy to split. Nice axe for small stuff IMO.
