Product Overview

  • Longer, shock-absorbing handle ideal for taller users
  • Advanced, ultra-sharp blade for more 1-strike splits
  • Customers like the feel and splitting power (see reviews)
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.
  • Assembled dimensions: 9-1/4 in. W x 1-3/4 in. D x 37-3/4 in. H
  • 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

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.

I noticed the handle is hollow Does this weaken it

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 344.

I have split wood by hand all my life and always preferred heavy mauls, I left mine at our vacation home and needed to buy another i looked at all they had and just didn't think this was heavy enough i bought a 12 lb. Husky item took it home, had some 26" ash logs blocked out i beat my brains out on two of them and gave up. The next morning I returned the Husky back to the store and bought the Fiskars it busted the same logs on the first hit! I worked the rest of the day breaking 30 - 36" inch ash and oak logs even the branched out pieces split. I usually don't write reviews but had to share my satisfaction with this product. Awesome tool!

The blade has a finish like that of a no stick pan. First swing, the log split and almost hit my youngest son 30+ feet away. The only 2 drawbacks I can say are #1 if you like to pop the axe into your splitting stump, forget it. It just doesn't stick, too slick. #2 The steel is a little soft at the bit. After about 1/8th cord. I stopped. I hadn't hit anything but wood and found the toe of the bit rounded over some. Couple passes on the carbide and it was gone but it was a little strange.

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.

The blade edge wears down a little quickly. But this is a great choice for the price if you're not cutting a lot of wood.
