Ideal for taller users or anyone who prefers a longer axe, Fiskars much-requested X27 Splitting Axe provides power that makes splitting medium-sized to extra-large logs easier than ever. Like every X-Series Hatchet or Axe, the X27 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. It also includes Fiskars longest handle for increased leverage to maximize the power and speed of taller users. Since you can split wood more easily with the X27, 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.

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.
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.

Top customer reviews
I've found choosing one of these tools isn't about finding the single best one, as they each have different techniques. The antique on the left can be thought of as a dull cutting axe with a broad elliptical cross section. It is great. Narrow and relatively light, the narrowness guides the ax through the wood, but also is more likely to get stuck in incomplete splits, so it's great for small logs. The cheap speed maul on the right was actually my favorite until the head broke off. Apparently a clone of the True Temper Sledge Eye here on Amazon, it is dull and heavy with an aggressively tapered head. This allows an aggressive swing not prone to get stuck, great for breaking up large rounds.
The Fiskars apparently seeks to bridge the gap between these two approaches with its heavy yet razor sharp continuous wedge design. It is heavy and not prone to get stuck while simultaneously having a narrower head. The problem I've found is splitting wood that does not have straight grain. The sharp edge will catch on a knot/piece of the log during/after the split. Then, because of its longer narrower head, the head wants to turn from the inertia---taking your hand with it. If your hands are attached to your body, this is a problem. I think Fiskars realized this, because the handle is rounded and symmetric, preventing a good grip. I've learned to definitely keep my non-dominant hand away from the toe in case it decides to twist. To insure not getting my hand broken, I have to hold it loosely at completion, resulting in a swing akin to throwing the ax into the wood. This is where the extra weight of the Fiskars comes in handy, but you also have to lift that same weight every swing. The speed maul doesn't have this problem. It allows me to have a firm grip and put my body weight into the completion of the swing. Since it is lighter, it is also much easier to bring it up to speed.
I think it comes down to individual preference. What garners the four stars is that the Fiskars is rugged, and I don't imagine breaking the head off for some time, if ever.
Let me explain: I absolutely love the hand forged axes made in Scandinavia, like Hults Bruk, Gransfors Bruks, Wetterlings...you get the idea.
Besides being very solid and extremely well made tools, some of them are truly works of art, and that includes the handles.
Yes...they come at a premium price, that I'm actually willing to pay.
What about the Fiskars X27 ?
I consider this the ugly duckling of the axe family.
Plastic hollow and non-replaceable handle, non hand forged lower quality production steel .......but if you remember the story.......what happened to the ugly duckling?
This axe is not a show horse, but IT IS ALL BUSINESS and it does the job extremely well.
It splits better than any axe I own and it very seldom get stuck in the wood.
The handle can take a real beating and it keeps going and going and going.....and all this at a fraction of the cost of a Scandinavian axe.
Gentlemen, if you know what you are doing and are experienced in splitting wood, have good control over the axe at all times, then the length and the wait will not be an issue.
If you only split wood twice a year, then GET THE SHORTER AXE !
I hate to say it: I REALLY LOVE THIS UGLY DUCKLING ! :)
