HERE'S AN UPDATE. Before I retired I was a researcher, so I have a tendency to experiment. When I misplaced our old Estwing splitting axe (the one with the leather ring handle), I decided to try a Fiskars product, since I generally like their tools. I ordered the FX11. I do not like it. First, the handle is too long for splitting kindling. Second, it's so slippery that I'd call it dangerous. So, I sent it back and order the Estwing E3. Shoulda done that in the first place.
As you can see in the photos it works on soft wood like pine as well as hardwood; on hardwood I'd rather a maul just for how hard it is on the body. Though with avocado, oak and even some pieces of pine, if you have to, I'd double clutch for control because it will fly off and kill your WHOLE family. I choke up really far on the handle and give the wood a little tappy to make kindling. The shock grip works phenomenally at keeping your fillings in place. I added a little lanyard because I like to pamper my equipment.
Definitely recommend this, I'll be grabbing a hatchet and splitting maul by Estwing right quick.
Under their intended use of light duty splitting, I don't think you could ever wear these hammers out.
Only issue I see with the two I recently bought was some pockmarks in the hammer head metal. Hopefully these aren't a sign of decreasing quality on the part of Estwing.
Every once in a while I'll still go car camping, and about once a year I'll go on a long roadtrip...that's where the Estwing maul comes in. Dang this thing is nice. No whacking the split log with the hatchet half jammed in there...a decently placed strike splits them cleanly in two.
If you're doing a bunch of car camping, and you'll be splitting purchased camp fire wood...get this.
First impression was quality and the very first thing that impressed was how sharp the edge was, it's sharper than that harbor freight survival knife you got for ten bucks, trust me. I like the weight, nice heft but not too heavy to swing one handed. Overall I'm impressed and it's just what I hoped for.
This is a great tool for turning bigger sticks of wood (logs) into kindling / starter wood. I heat my home with a wood stove, so this is a great tool for me, as I don't need to keep a lot of kindling around (and keeping a huge pile of sticks is a waste of space).
All I need to get a fire started is one log split into kindling size sticks and I'm good. As long as you are skilled with an axe/maul, this is easy to use. At 4 lbs, it's a good weight for me, and does a job that a small light camping axe won't do well or safely (have to swing really fast). 4 lb for a head of this length really is pretty manageable for most people I'd think, and heavy enough to make its way through most wood pretty well.
All in all, a nice tool, and as most Estwing product are, made in the USA.
