Fiskars 23" Splitting Axe

Our X12 Splitting Axe is an easy-to-handle, easy-to-transport choice for anyone who needs to split small- to medium-sized logs with power and speed. Like every X-Series Hatchet or Axe, the X15 combines perfected weight distribution, advanced blade geometry, an ultra-sharp edge and virtually unbreakable design to maximize your performance. This combination of features allows the blade to disperse wood more effectively, offering more one-strike splits with each swing. Since you can split wood more easily with the X15, each job requires less time, less effort and less hand strain.
