Product Description

The X25 Splitting Axe is a great choice for anyone who needs to split medium- to large-sized logs quickly. Like every X-Series Hatchet or Axe, the X25 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 X25, each job requires less time, less effort and less hand strain.

Make every swing your best with an axe designed for extreme performance.

Unlike traditional axes that can be heavy, quick to dull and easy to break, X-Series axes combine perfected weight distribution, advanced blade geometry, an ultra-sharp edge and virtually unbreakable design to maximize your performance.

Note: Image shown is of the Fiskars X25 Splitting Axe.

Proudly made in Finland, the axes are designed to be simple, functional and effective, helping you get more work done in less time. This design earned the X-Series axes the international red dot "best of the best" product design award for the garden category in 2010, recognizing outstanding design quality and trendsetters. A wide range of sizes and styles makes it easy to find the X-Series axe perfect for you, whether you're chopping kindling, chopping logs, splitting logs or felling trees.

The X-Series Advantage

X-Series axes combine innovative features for chopping axes that chop 3X deeper and splitting axes that offer more one-strike splits.

More Power at Impact

All X-Series axes feature a smart design that distributes the majority of the weight to the axe head while keeping the stronger-than-steel FiberComp handle lightweight. This perfected weight distribution provides an optimal power-to-weight ratio that increases swing speed to multiply power, much like an aluminum baseball bat. X-Series axes give you more power at impact to help you get more done with every swing.

Superior Blade Design

The blades of X-Series axes are crafted with a proprietary grinding technique that provides a sharper edge for better contact and cleaner cuts. The hardened, forged steel blades also stay sharp longer than traditional axes, and a low-friction blade coating helps power through the tough logs and prevents the axe head from getting stuck. X-Series Splitting Axes also include advanced bevel convex blade geometry that adds even more power and disperses wood from the blade for cleaner, one-strike splits.

Virtually Unbreakable

X-Series axes don't just outlast other axes--they're virtually impossible to break. A shock-absorbing FiberComp handle is lightweight yet stronger than steel, so it can't be broken through overstrike. The hardened, forged steel blade won't chip or crack, and the innovative PermaHead design is over-molded so the blade can't be separated from the handle.

Another 5 star review of the Fiskars 36" Splitting Axe to convince you to definitely buy this great splitting axe. I am 5'10". I did have the 28" Fiskars axe but I knew it was too short and unsafe. After the first swing, I sent it back. I now have the 36" and what a awesome splitting axe. It easily blows away my other splitting axes and mauls - Collins 36" 6 and 8 lbs mauls, Ames True Temper Axe Eye Wood Splitter and Ames True Temper Super Splitter Wood Splitter-Maul. The 36" Fiskars is light - only 4 lbs., important when you hand splitting (and I was definitely grateful for the light weight difference after splitting several cords of wood). Even though it's light, I've had great luck splitting all sorts of hardwoods, red/white oak, black locust, walnut - and those are some of your hardest firewood types. On really tough pieces, I start splitting off the four outer sides where the tree growth rings are the weakest and then I'm left with a sort of square-ish center piece which is usually small enough to burn. This axe has a nice sharp blade and it holds it sharpness pretty long between sharpenings. Another great feature is how the handle is molded up and around the blade. I have really missed my mark and gave this handle a beating and (so far) it's holding up great. I've broke hickory and cracked fiberglass handles before, but this handle is tough. Also, you get a nice little locking blade protector case with a handle on it. So, in conclusion, in my opinion, this is the best splitting axe I've ever used.Plus you'll save $$$ by not buying an electric/gas wood splitter. Also, buy yourself some steel toe boots and eye protection; can't be too careful. Here are some great tips for those just getting into wood burning. For those of you shopping for a wood burner, I have a Lopi Freedom Insert.Read more ›

I know I have reviewed this before, its just every time I use this Axe I like it more and more, anyway to I did a quickie unedited video of me splitting a few rounds, I have split Doug Fur, Aspen, Walnut and Hickory, some rounds take several hits, and is still 1/2 the work of using wedges and mauls...

I've been reading about others who have been using various Fiskars splitting tools over the last few years, always treating them with some skepticism and never really feeling the need to get one of the 28" short handled versions. With the release of teh 36" X27 splitting axe however I decided it was time to try it for myself and see what all the fus was about. Got my new X27 when I came home from owork one night and I was unable to resist, immediately unboxed it, went outside and gave a hard maple round (about 14" across and 20" long, no branches or knots) and good solid whack. The head bounced right off the thing. Hit it again, same result. No split, no cracks, no nothing. Curious, I grabbed my trusly old fiberglass handled 8lb maul and blew the round into 2 equal sized chunks on the first hit. Thinking I must have gotten it started with the X27 I grabbed another round, smacked it with the old maul and WHAM! popped it on the first hit. I took one of the halves and again, the X27 disappointed.

Figuring I had a problem here because there is just no way THAT many people reviewing this thing could possibly not have used a standard 8lb splitting maul similar to mine, I did some hunting and even contacted Fiskars tech support. I was able to trace my problem back to the cutting edge on the axe. The Fiskars needs a shapr cutting edge in order to work right and while they're supposed to be nice and sharp right from the factory, for whatever reason, mine was very dull...it could be that the supplier that ships them for Amazon levaes them dull to avoid lawsuits, or my particualr axe wound up with an extraordinarliy thick coating of the non stick application on the head...but whatever the reason, my thumb was in no danger of being cut by running it over the edge.

I have owned the super splitting axe for close to 4 years now and have split at least 15 cords of oak, maple, ash, hickory, beech, birch and cherry with it so I feel I can safely say it is by far the best splitting tool I have ever used and I have been splitting wood by hand for 30 years. I am 6'2" tall, and I do not find the length of the handle a problem. I split on a stump and let the wedge fall downward so have never come close to winging myself. You need far less momentum with this lightweight wedge than when using a six or eight pound maul, so it is easier to aim and control the trajectory. It really feels more like using a standard axe but with far better splitting power. I can split for 3-4 hours without tiring because the axe is so light. I have just run through about 4.5 cords of green oak in 26 hours over 3 weeks (see image). Though more work physically, this axe is actually faster than homeowner-sized hydraulic wood splitters if you have good technique. It holds an edge very well and the teflon coating still seems to be holding up after all the use I have put it through. The handle is in perfect shape (see image I posted)and I like the axe handle butt as it makes holding on to the tool when my gloves are wet much easier. It may seem like a toy from the pictures, but this is a fantastic, professional-grade tool. I have convinced several folks to buy one after trying out mine!
