Superior Blade Design
Fiskars axes are crafted with a proprietary grinding technique that provides a sharper edge for better contact and cleaner cuts. Blades also stay sharp longer and include low-friction coating.
More Power at Impact
Much like an aluminum baseball bat, perfected weight distribution provides an optimal power-to-weight ratio that increases swing speed to multiply power.
With stronger-than-steel FiberComp handles and inseparable insert-molded heads, our axes don’t just outlast others they’re virtually impossible to break.
Fiskars promotes achievement and self-expression by focusing on easy to use, innovative tools to make gardening, cooking and crafting more enjoyable. The Fiskars brand is part of Fiskars Group, which was founded in Finland in 1649 and has become a leading functional and living products company with a strong brand portfolio including Fiskars, Iittala, Gerber, Wedgewood and Waterford.
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.

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.
It's 100% true. I started with an old axe I had and as much as I enjoyed it, I found it laborious, but satisfying. Drawing from my other saying, "a man is only as good as his tool." I went on Amazon that evening to look up better axes. I came across the Fiskars X27 36 inch monster. Based on the reviews, it was a sure purchase. I'm glad I did. Frankly the rest is history. I mauled through 4 trees withing a week's time, resulting a ton of firewood stacked in my property line as a natural wall in my backyard. It was an enlightening and exhilarating experience.
"Chop wood, it's good." My other saying now.
