Adler Premium Black Forest Splitting Axe

Unleash the beast! This monster splitter is sure to take down any knot-filled "prob-log" that's holding your woodpile back from completion. The winged wedge head allows it to sink deep into the log so the flared design can truly get to work ripping apart that wood. The ergonomic handle keeps you comfortable through hours of work, while the anti-slip grip paint keeps your hands from coming loose.
