Answer This Question

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.

    Answer This Question

    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

    by|Mar 10, 2021

      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.

        by|May 31, 2021

          A:  NO

                  Q:Can the back of the axe be hit repeatedly with a small sledge hammer to help drive it through wood?

                  A:  I would not hit the back end of the axe with a sledgehammer.

                  by|May 27, 2020

                    A:  No it states do not hit back of head with hammer it will eventually break.

                    by|Mar 27, 2019

                      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.

                      by|Mar 26, 2019

                        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

                        by|Mar 28, 2019

                          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.

                            by|Mar 29, 2019

                              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.

                              by|Mar 28, 2019

                                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.

                                    Cut through wood like butter
                                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have been splitting wood for a long time and let me tell you, nothing comes close to the Fiskars X25 Splitting Axe (28"). With just one strike, you can split any log you are working with. I split large cherry wood and others. This baby slice through wood like butter. The polymer handle is lightweight and durable. This ax makes splitting wood fun. This tool will last you for a long time. After using it countless times, it split as if it’s the first time you use it. Extremely happy with this purchase.

                                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I moved into my first house back in 2015 and I've been missing one very basic, yet surprisingly still very useful too, the splitting axe. No more struggling with a chainsaw with smaller, quicky jobs where a quick swing of the axe will take care of it. I haven't used it extensively yet for splitting logs but I did a few to see how it did and I found it to be incredibly well balanced and a much less wear on the axe swinger than other axes I've used. Seems to be very well crafted and made with tough materials. 5 stars

                                          I needed to split some larger pieces of wood for easy starting of my fireplace insert. This axe does the job with one swing. The label on the axe says "One-Strike Splits" and they ain't lying.

                                            Very impressed by this guy
                                            I have a lot of large tree limbs down in my yard that I've decided to cut & split myself. This axe has turned what I thought would be a difficult, boring chore into a fun exercise/hobby activity. I'm a 5'5", average build, 30-something lady and the size/weight of this axe is incredibly easy for me to handle, but if you hit the right spot it will drop through a 8-10" diameter log like there's nothing there. I've had success with larger logs too but those ones take 3-4 strikes. I would definitely recommend this (paired with a small chain saw) for anyone like me, who has a LOT of big old trees on their property that always tend to leave "presents" in the yard after every storm.

                                              I am going on 59 years old so I'm not as limber or strong as I once was. I chose this ax because it is shorter and lighter than some which I hoped would work better with my strength and height than some of the other axes I viewed. I am GLAD I did because it is a very fine cutting tool. It makes splitting the logs relatively stress and pain free. I recently split green logs from a tree felled the same day and the ax performed quite well. I found that with whole logs it took a few strikes, but once initially split it was typically single strike splits thereafter. The construction seems exceptionally durable and the ax head sheath is very well designed as blade protector and ax hanger. It was worth $20.00 or so more to get this ax rather than less expensive options. I suspect this ax will outlive me if treated properly the way any fine tool should be. Thank you Fiskars!

                                              This is my go-to splitting axe. Great tool. This plus a Fiskars 8 lbs. splitting maul is a perfect combo: a "driver" and a "five wood." These two tools totally retired my 12-lbs. "monster maul." I use the 8-lbs. maul (much easier to swing but more effective than the 12-lbs. monster) as little as possible in larger rounds - and then just to break them initially - and then move over to the lighter X25 to work the wood from there. The X25 is light, feels great in the grip, and precise/easy to handle - much easier to swing for longer amounts of time than heavier tools. And, it just works. No need to swing larger mauls in small to mid-sized wood. I wouldn't be without this axe.

                                                After reading the reviews and watching Youtube videos, I had to give it a try. After taking my first swing with the X25, I was sold! It just put my old splitting maul to shame. Wish I had found out about this splitting axe years ago.
