Shares the same head as the Gransfors Bruk SMALL SPLITTING AXE which has a longer handle.
Unlike many splitting axes, the cheeks on Gransfors Bruk splitting axes are distinctly concave with a fairly sharp thin bit. Once the bit enters the log, the concave cheeks quickly became thicker busting the log effortlessly apart.

Good choice for people who may need to split bought-in firewood into a smaller size or to produce kindling. Can be used single-handed or with two hands.
Compliments a larger splitting axe perfectly.
Also an excellent axe to bust down logs for green woodworking; hold the axe cutting edge accurately on the end grain with the handle horizontal then wack the poll with a wooden maul or heavy knocker. Never use a sledge hammer to do this.

Gransfors Bruk SPLITTING HATCHET has a steel collar guard below the head. This will reduce damage to the handle if overshoot occurs.
