Product Overview

Ideal for taller users or anyone who prefers a longer axe, the Fiskars X27 Splitting Axe provides power that makes splitting medium-sized to extra-large logs easier than ever. Like every X-Series hatchet or axe, the X27 combines balanced weight distribution, advanced blade geometry, an ultra-sharp edge and virtually unbreakable design to maximize performance. This combination of features allows the blade to disperse wood more effectively, offering more one-strike splits with each swing. It also includes our longest handle for increased leverage to maximize the power and speed of taller users. Since you can split wood more easily with the X27, each job requires less time, less effort and less hand strain. A lifetime warranty underscores its durability.

  • Designed for maximum efficiency to give you more 1-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
  • Shock-absorbing FiberComp handle is lightweight yet stronger than steel to prevent overstrike damage
  • Ideal for taller users, this splitting axe provides power and speed that makes splitting medium-sized to extra-large logs easier than ever
  • Proprietary blade-grinding technique provides a sharper edge for better contact and cleaner cuts

Customer Questions & Answers

Is the Friskars X27 6.3 LB 36 IN. good also for chopping trees, and if so up to what width? Also, I am 5'8", would the X27 be OK for me? Thanks.

Asked by: Jacques
I recommend a chopping axe for chopping down trees. This is a splitting Axe. I am 5'7" and use this axe with no problem.

Can you use a sledge hammer for added assistance to split a tree into 3ft logs?

Safe for the axe to use a sledge hammer for Splitting an 8-15ft tree into multiple 2-3ft logs
Asked by: nick
No, you can damage the molded handle that is attached to the head if you miss. Why would you try to use a sledge hammer on a nice expensive swinging splitting axe like this! This is a swinging splitting axe for fire wood rounds. Spitting axes are not designed to used with a sledge hammer. You need to go buy several wedges to drive in a row along the wood grain to use with a sledge hammer if you are going to split long 3 feet rounds or longer rounds or to split fence post or rails.

Asked by: Chollie
It doesn't seem so, I did over extend my swing several times and saw no damage

Protective packaging for shipping

Hi - I would like to purchase this axe and have it shipped. Would you please detail how the axe is packaged for shipment. Our courier company requires the blade to be protected by cork, hard plastic, polyurethane or similar material, with the outer packaging to be rigid : plastic, metal, wood, strong plastic or other rigid material. Thank you Nerida
Asked by: NKK
The blade is protected by strong plastic that also doubles as a wall mount.

X27 6.3 lb. 36 in. Super Splitting Axe is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 315.

A five star item for a respectable price, this is most likely to be the last splitting axe you will ever need.  It's a great compliment to any outdoor arsenal.  An avid outdoorsman with wood stoves in two properties, I've used plenty of axes, mauls, and wedges.  This is hands down the best I have encountered.  It is not the most attractive axe, at least in comparison to some of the higher end versions that resemble works of art.  But those I'd feel guilty about beating up too badly... with this product, I put it through a lot of abuse and it always comes out victorious.  Its performance more than makes up for the appearance.  A functional product that is well designed, I've used it to split logs up to 18" long and 10-12" in diameter.  Unlike other axes, this one almost always gets a solid split in one swing.  I love it, and I'm notoriously critical when it comes to performance.  It comes razor sharp and is very easy to top up with a small file.  I've had to resort to bench grinders with other axes and hatchets to keep them sharp, with the Fiskars it holds its edge impressively well and only needs minimal honing.

Like some other people on here, I thought this was just some kind of gimmick. But a friend got one and said it was great and that I should try it. Well, I did and it really is that good. Seems to be very well made, solid, and yeah, it splits wood like crazy. I even tried it on some stuff that I couldn't split with my maul or wedges. It took that stuff and made short work of it. Most impressive. I'd buy this again and I would recommend it. Give it a try, it really works well.

I had the wood/old time axe and using it the steel head literally became loose . Impossible to reattach so tried this axe and the 25 too. Yes, I would recommend, alittle heavy for me but I figure if someone is helping it is perfect for a man , and ihave the 25 , the smaller version for me . These should last a lifetime and I thought the prices very fair.

I bought this after much research and was sold by you-tube video of a guy in the mid-west who heated his house primarily w/wood. He admittedly didn't like Fiskars brand, but couldn't deny how good the X27 performed.

My son split and stacked with me the day we got it and he agreed that it's very well balanced and cuts easily through 18-20" blocks of wood. Package was rough on delivery but contents were fine.

It does a great job when sharp. I prefer my 15 lb Monster Maul for logs greater than 16" diameter, as it can cleave them in half with 1-5 strikes usually. I need to flake off the sides with the Fiskars.
