I used it to split fresh ash logs that were 20 inches in diameter, if that translates to anything you are doing.

I used a 10 lb sledge and a 4 lb mini sledge, so any sledge can work depending on size of the log you're splitting.

Splitting beast
The wings on the side really make this stand out against other splitting wedges. This and an 8 lb sledge and you can split any wood. I was splitting 14”-16” rounds right down the middle with just a few strikes.

Really great product. I have been splitting some green, wet wood because I am a glutton for punishment. This wedge has taken a real beating from my sledge hammer and lived to tell the story. It has kept its edge and only mildly deformed the striking surface. Really happy with this purchase.

Dont cheap out with Less quailty Steel!! I pounded this baby over 50x with a maul axe and this thing took the licking and kept on ticking! It took the brunt of some off center shots (sheared the top of the little wings that pop out became prety sharp) but after a few more smashes through the red oak stumps, smoothes right out and now those stumps are pefect bbq wedge pieces. Thanks to the American Made Grade Steel. Estwing for all my construction/destruction tools.

Piece of junk
Do not waste your time or money order wedge. Doesn't not work at all. I ended up finding an old "Warren-teed" model 120-5 wedge (from the 1940s!!!!) rusted like crazy in my garage. soaked it in vinegar for a week, scrubbed it, used an angle grinder on it, used a file to out a razor sharp edge on it, and it works perfectly. find yourself one of those on eBay. This estwing is garbage.

This tool kept bouncing off. It did not split a single log, even when I used a chain saw to give it a head start. I went out to buy a cheaper wedge that put this rip off to shame. Just don't buy this. Expensive does not mean effective...lesson learnt!

Been beating on it with a 5 pound sledgehammer and a 3 pound maul and it is still in excellent condition. The extra wedges on the top work to split the wood faster. Great product.
