Splitting and trimming

A question of the tool

Interesting facts

Always pay attention to the type of axe you are using. Due to the diverse shapes not all axes are useful for all for all shapes. For instance a forest axe is not suitable for splitting wood and might even be damaged in the process.

In the same way a splitting axe is not useful for chopping and trimming wood. Refer to our instruction manual when selecting an axe for a job or check the product descriptions.
