A: File and sharpening puck will work but I found my axe was sharp out of the box.
A: Look for a knife and axe sharpener. It's a bit of a science, so you might wanna communicate with the person before taking it in.
A: Yes it can, It may take a little longer depending on the size of the tree. Make sure you sharpen blade as it will become dull after.
A: Yes, of course depends on the size of the tree and your ability
A: Thank you for your inquiry. A splitting axe is designed for vertically splitting of a log. The best axe to fall a tree would be a chopping axe as it is designed to penetrate against the grain of the wood.
A: A smaller tree yes. It might take a little more effort then a heavier ax.
A: No. Made in Finland. Excellent axe though.
A: Fiskars is based in Finland, and their axes are made in Finland.
A: Finland is indicated.
A: Thank you for your inquiry. The X25 Splitting Axe is made in Finland.
A: I believe they are made in Finland.
A: I would not hit the back end of the axe with a sledgehammer.
A: No it states do not hit back of head with hammer it will eventually break.
A: Thank you for contacting Fiskars. Our splitting axes are not made to be struck on the back of the head. Doing this can damage the axe.
A: Not a good idea, in my opinion The repeated metal-to-metal impact is bound to cause a failure of the axe (not it's intended use) For tough-to-split wood I would use a wedge (it's intended use) and a sledge
A: There is no need it will go though the 1st time
A: Under no circumstances should you strike the poll of the axe with a sledge, or use the poll of the axe to strike metal objects like splitting wedges. It will definitely bugger up the poll and may cause structural damage to the attachment. If you feel like you need to use the axe like a splitting wedge (made to he hit with a sledge), get a splitting wedge.
A: It might work, but I don’t know what kind of damage it would do the the flat end of the axe. With enough force the axe should split a log without having to hit it with a sledge hammer.
A: I've used it that way, but it has flattened out some.
A: I love this splitter but I think what you would need it a wedge.
A: It is not recommended.
