Product Overview

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
  • Proprietary blade-grinding technique provides a sharper edge for better contact and cleaner cuts
  • Hardened forged steel blade stays sharp longer than traditional axes
  • Low-friction blade coating powers through wood and prevents head from getting stuck
  • Inseparable insert-molded head will not loosen and prevents overstrike breakage

Is it a die cast (dead blow)??

Asked by Jeff May 9, 2020

Answers

Based on their promotional video showing the manufacturing process, the head appears to be forged (a cylindrical steel blank is heated red hot and then squeezed into the final shape), not cast.

I believe the axe heads are the same, and the handles differ in some way. Function is presented as the same. Comfort may be different in the X27.

Does the x27 come with a plug at the end of the handle

Nope it is hallow and the end is open, as far as I know most of their axes are hollow on the end... the Maul is filled though.

YES! If you have had any amount of time on a maul you will love this axe. With that said it is no miracle worker or magic trick, stubborn logs are just going to be tough to split no matter what.

There is nothing to fear. Many plastics, lubricants, and in this case the carbon fiber handle, have been molded with a petroleum based epoxy that put it on California's list. This is a great axe for splitting firewood. Your husband will love it.

Amazing product, usually a 36 inch maul would be to big for me as I’m 6’1” but this super splitting axe is really something else. It splits better than a maul, is lighter than a maul, and allows to deliver more strikes throughout the day without wearing yourself out.

This ax performs exactly as Fiskars advertises. One swing and the wood splits! No painful vibration up the arm when you hit a knot! I got so eager to start splitting one morning that I forgot I had the protective sheath on the ax. Swing, CRACK! No more sheath...So I called customer service, explained what happened and they sent out a new sheath, no charge! I am so pleased with this product I WILL buy more from Fiskar in the future.

Splits like butter.. and is so much lighter than other splitting axes I also got the fiskars sharpener they recommend in related items.. you definitely won't regret buying this axe.

For the money, this is an excellent splitting axe. Please note that due to it's profile, it will get stuck in rounds with knots or twisted grain. I have been able to split rounds from a recently felled 80 ft Maple tree and an old Japanese Maple. Splits rounds with no knots in one clean strike. The composite handle also helps when I sometimes have an overstrike and hit the handle on the log. So far after a month of use, I'm very satisfied.

Great splitting axe & perfect for camping. The handle is easy to grip & the axe it has a nice weight. It is not heavy as others which is good for my bad shoulder. My son & I had no problem splitting wood & it made the process easy. This is well balanced & it looks great. The head is solid & gets the job done. I'm 100% satisfied with my purchase & this splitting axe.

A five star item for a respectable price, this is most likely to be the last splitting axe you will ever need.  It's a great compliment to any outdoor arsenal.  An avid outdoorsman with wood stoves in two properties, I've used plenty of axes, mauls, and wedges.  This is hands down the best I have encountered.  It is not the most attractive axe, at least in comparison to some of the higher end versions that resemble works of art.  But those I'd feel guilty about beating up too badly... with this product, I put it through a lot of abuse and it always comes out victorious.  Its performance more than makes up for the appearance.  A functional product that is well designed, I've used it to split logs up to 18" long and 10-12" in diameter.  Unlike other axes, this one almost always gets a solid split in one swing.  I love it, and I'm notoriously critical when it comes to performance.  It comes razor sharp and is very easy to top up with a small file.  I've had to resort to bench grinders with other axes and hatchets to keep them sharp, with the Fiskars it holds its edge impressively well and only needs minimal honing.

I split 40-50 cord a year by using a commercial splitter,maul and axe.I have used this "axe" for 30 days solid.I found the Fiskars X27 not to be a "normal" axe by any means...I found it to be well balanced and a perfect fit for my taller frame.There are by far many more one strike splits using the X27 VS a conventional axe. I found it very useful in "finishing" off rounds quartered by my Fiskars 8 lb maul....this equates to more productivity! I am not easy on equipment as what I have flat gets used.. and by more than one person and overstrikes abound as a result. I have no time to pamper equipment and the X27 is holding up beautifully! It has met my expectations and then some! I will be buying another!
