If you need to create kindling for your campfire, wood stove, fireplace or pizza oven and you don’t want to risk injury by using an axe, the Kindling Cracker is just what you need. Built in Australia with an award-winning, patented design, it's the safer, faster and easier way to make the best kindling for your fire.
The Kindling Cracker delivers real-world ingenuity from an unlikely source — a school-age student who was determined to avoid injuries from splitting firewood into kindling. The simple, safe and easy-to-use design that began as a science fair project has become a perennial award winner, from science fairs in New Zealand to regional and international recognition from Scientific American, International TeenBusiness, Google and more.
Quality, Premium Build
The Kindling Cracker is made in an Australian foundry. It consists of one solid piece of high-quality cast iron, so it's something that your grandkids' grandkids will use to split their own kindling, if cared for and used correctly. The only maintenance it needs is a bit brushing off and maybe a touch of paint from time to time to look like new for generations.
Safe and Easy to Use
The Kindling Cracker is a top-grade cast iron splitting head mounted inside of a 12in.H cast iron frame. To make a perfect piece of kindling, place a piece of firewood inside the iron safety ring and strike with a blunt instrument, such as a hammer, mallet or even another piece of wood. This drives the wood down onto the splitting wedge for a quick, easy split. There is no need to swing a sharp axe blade dangerously close to your hands. It's the perfect companion for your backyard stack of firewood, creating perfect kindling for your fireplace, fire pit, pizza oven, sauna, barbecue or smoker.

Six month update: After six months the Kindling Splitter still deserves 5 stars. I attached two photographs to show my actual Splitter next to my woodpile. Six months of exposure to rain, snow, heat and cold. Works like a charm. I bought a second one for the Michigan cabin.
I used to fight with hatchets, mallet, wedge, and severe cuss words from trying to stabilized wood and get the right angle to get it to split. WIth this, it's a matter of a couple small taps to start, then 3-5 hits with a small mallet and the wood is split. If a piece it too big, just split it again. I would recommend stabilizing it, made a big difference for me. It's currently on a bench (a tad high, but not really a problem), with a coupld of bolts to hold it in place - easy to take off as needed. Only issue I have is that the old wood tends to leave lots of dust and crap that needs to be cleaned up. Minor price to pay.
I don't review everything, and I sure as heck don't always give 5 starts. Worth it here, though.
