The Gränsfors Splitting Maul can be used for splitting very thick and knotty chunks of wood. It is forged and ground to a concave, quite thin blade at the bit. The axe cuts quickly and easily into the wood and then effectively splits it as the broader section pushes apart the wood. Its weight and sturdy poll with beveled corners make the maul perfect for striking a wedge. Otherwise, the design is similar to the Larger Splitting Axe, but with a slightly longer poll. The handle has a protective steel collar below the axe head and circular grooves towards the end for an extra firm grip. The Splitting Maul is the heaviest axe produced by Gränsfors Bruk.
- Length with handle: 31.5″ (80 cm)

Gränsfors Bruk has committed over 100 years to manufacturing and developing axes. Every axe is specifically designed to meet a particular function, with a tireless focus on high quality and area of use. A considerable amount of effort has also been put into producing axes with sound green credentials, avoiding any unnecessary consumption of natural resources.
When it comes to the quality and feel of the axes, much depends on the experience and skill of the individual craftsman. Each axe is signed with the smith’s initials as a guarantee of quality.
