Handle shattered during 2nd use
Wood handle shattered during 2nd use splitting post oak. Assuming it actually is hickory, I believe the handle is too skinny for a 6 lbs maul and the stress.

Bought this for my son to split oak and he said it worked really well. It made splitting the wood so much easier than with the fiberglass handled one he just broke. He said the hand slide was easier. He was concerned the handle would be too short as he is 6'1" but it has worked just fine and dandy and has all ready split nearly a chord of wood. One problem my son was complaining about was the head coming loose. I says, son, you gotta soak that in a bucket of water, don't you know! it is dry mountain air where he lives, 100 degree temperatures and July! Soak the head. He complained some more and I explained that is part of maintenance, not a problem with the maul. Splits great, and I myself am a fan of wooden handles, having split my share of oak in my younger days before back problems
Incorrect grain orientation on the handle and the head doesn't...
Incorrect grain orientation on the handle and the head doesn't "look" or "feel" very refined. I have seen better quality head for much less. I have not used this tool much so far so I suppose time will tell.

Excellent splitting tool, much better than the lesser cost splitters. This one has the best weight, 6 lbs. a sharper edge, very good balance, very good shape head, just like the old time splitting mauls. The new ones are too heavy, 8 lbs., rounded cutting edge, poorly balanced because of the extra weight, and they have the fragile fiberglass handles, but they cost less.
