I wasn't quite sure what I was getting when I ordered this. Was it an ax? Was it a maul? Well, in truth, it's sort of both, although out of the box, you can only use it as an ax, which is how I tested it. Combined with a wedge, you can use the maul side to split larger pieces of wood. I tried splitting a number of cedar logs, which had come from a dead cedar chopped down on my property. I found that I could easily split 4" rounds, and with a bit of effort could break 6" rounds, although it really helped if these already had a crack in them. Anything larger than this and I was out of luck. Perhaps someone more experienced with an ax, or with a more powerful swing, could split bigger pieces of wood, but I think you'd probably want to move to the maul and wedge approach. Overall, a very nice piece of equipment, and whether you call it a splitter, an ax, or a maul, you'll probably be happy with it.

I really like this new 8 pound wood splitter, from Razorback, with the 34 inch fiberglass handle. It works great, I should of had this years ago for all my camping day, you just let the 8 pounds do the work for you. It is sharp, only need to align the blade with the grain in the log. I split this piece of cherry wood with 3 hits, one split it into 2 pieces, the next 2 split each halve with one blow. the old sledge and wedges don't even compare to this tool. The handle is firm and fits my hands very well. It is comfortable too.

No-slip handle, good weight and rugged design
I needed a new maul to split firewood - this one is perfect. As expected, it has a flat head for hitting a wedge or spike to split logs, and a splitter head on the opposite end. The entire length is nearly 36 inches (see photos). The handle is most impressive with no-slip texture, and is reinforced fiberglass. I like the Safe-Lock(tm) steel-anchored head, designed so that the head cannot detach from the handle.
