- Wood chopperists
After some advice on wood cutting tools / gear. A pal has just bought a bang-on-trend wood burner and I want to get him a birthday present, so was thinking axe or some thing useful for seasoning his own wood. Problem might be that he’s not your Aldi special kinda guy – he likes to have one quality item of kit that’ll do the job rather than 5 which might if the weather’s right – so could be pricey. Any ideas for axes, saws or other nice kit in the “reasonable” price range?Posted 3 years ago
if you / he wants a good tool that works, at a great value price, the fiskars splitting axes are excellent, the x25 or the x27. they are lighter to swing than a traditional maul so you can go for hours if you want to, and they work. best of all it rarely gets stuck, not firm at least. my x27 is far better than my 6lb maul from toolstation/screwfix. however its plastic handle means it doesn’t look special. if you want looks, then you want hand forged and ash or hickory handle. I assume neeman tools are out of the price bracket (think jon neemans maul is about £600), a grunfors bruks is a serious tool though, about £100 for their maul. if your friend hasn’r split wood before though, he will break the handle in time….hickory handles cost about £15.Posted 3 years ago
no problem. lifetime warranty on the handle, pretty good edge…good tool at a great price. hope he likes it.
personally i’m waiting for fiskars to respond to a question i’ve askd on facebook and two different contact emails for customer care. Is the fiskars 8lb isocore maul coming to the uk? sometimes you just need to go big! 😀Posted 3 years ago
