Its very good, you get what you pay for.
I can’t compare the fiskars x27 to lots of other axes but I have to say it works brilliantly. Very lightweight for its size and splitting ability. Good length so no chance of hitting yourself on a missstrike. Only issue is that I might get a smaller axe at some point to complement it as you don’t always need to use it full force. We did do a bit of a test against a cheap maul, Whilst the maul felt like it should do a better job the x27 was definitely our preferred choice. As I’m just getting the hang of it I’ve hit the shaft a couple of times at full chat but there’s been no damage so don’t think the 25yr guarantee will be needed. Came with a free sharpener which also works really well. About £2 more expensive at tooled up but with the sharpener it was a no brained, quick well packaged delivery too.
5 stars all the way for this axe and the service from Tooled-Up.com. I will admit I was skeptical that a splitting axe with a comparably light head could be as effective and easy to use as all the previous reviews had indicated, but pleased to be proved wrong. Once I'd adjusted my technique (you need to fully commit on the down swing, no half measures) I was splitting logs that would have taken several goes with my old Aldi splitter and 14lb sledge, with a single swing.
Excellent service, excellent product. Would definitely recommend.
Great log splitter, light enough to use for a long period without tiring but still more effective than a heavier maul.
Having used axes and splitting mauls for over 45 years, this is easily the most effective axe I’ve used. It is deceptively light - when it arrived I never thought it would be up to the job! I was wrong. It has split huge oak, beech and elm rounds, as big as 750mm diameter and up to 300m deep without problem. It will even split some knotty pieces with perseverance. It rarely gets stuck, and if it does it releases easily. An excellent log splitter. Thoroughly recommended.
Excellent piece of kit for splitting large pieces of logs
Nice weighted axe for splitting logs
Great piece of kit. Not over heavy like a maul but quite capable of splitting nasty, twisted, knotty lumps with a good swing in the right place if you know what you're about and have a block at a good height. Straight grained green wood is a doddle - I was doing hawthorn by pretty much dropping the axe on it. Obviously you need to learn technique - for instance starting at the edge of big logs and working around - don't just smack it in the middle and expect it to fall apart; but logs of 6" hardwood will split with minimal effort. The weight and shape of the head is fantastic - I'm not a big bloke - but it's controllable even on miss-hits. I would still suggest you always wear high leg steel toecaps and gloves that grip well however. The handle is hollow but as tough as old boots, I have over hit a few times and where a wooden handle would have given a massive shock and broken it bounced. Still felt it, mind. Personally I wouldn't bother with the smaller versions, this one is manageable and will deal with just about anything without wearing you out in 15 minutes. Just go slow, take your time and don't get carried away if you've not used a splitting axe before.
This splitting maul is legendary. Price is the best on the web. Web shopping how it should be. What is not to like?
Slices through logs like a knife through butter. Perfectly balanced, can't understand that I didn't invest in one years ago. Makes splitting logs a pleasure and at this price, say no more. Excellent service with super fast delivery and a free sharpener.
Overall a great piece of kit, I have used it to split logs and it cuts through them like a hot knife through butter. Definitely recommend this product for anyone thinking of getting an axe for log splitting. The service from Tooled-up was excellent, prompt delivery and well packaged.
Very happy with my purchase
This was a gift for my husband for Christmas. He was so exited to use it to split his wood on Christmas day ????
This product is an amazing tool like a knife though butter and so good to use it is only matched by the amazing customer service great value great company
Excellent product at an excellent price with super service thrown in! It was the best deal I could find for this axe and proved to be very satisfying in every respect.
Immensely pleased with item and service of Tooled-Up.com
Received mine today, wow! Splits knotty dried oak logs foot long plus, by foot and half long with ease. Rarely got stuck in the wood. Free sharpener works a treat too. The trick to using the maul, is let it do the work. I put full force into one swing which missed the mark and my hand suffered from the shock, from then on put 75% effort in to subsequent swings and progress was still fast. With the balance and lighter weight, accuracy is simple to achieve. Great stuff.
splits even very knotty logs eventually!! :)
Amazing tool, best Axe I have ever owned much better than the mule type and splits logs with ease. Very light weight as described so you can use for longer, worth the money.
Fantastic axe, superb build quality with razor sharp blade and unparalleled chopping ability. Fantastic purchase, splits large and small logs with ease.
Best splitting axe I have found, comfortable to use with less effort to split large logs, came with a great sharpener just a few strokes to maintain a razor sharp edge.
Great axe for really big logs. Powerfull, well balanced, right weight for the handle length, very comfortable to work with. Two hand use only!
As a complete novice other than splitting kindling I was slightly apprehensive, but this is simply excellent. Satisfyingly large pile of logs in an hour or so. Very impressed.
Have used various splitting axes over the last few years, it might be more expensive than the rest but boy, does it work. I even use in preference to getting out the hydraulic log splitter if I am feeling energetic.
Already had the x25 which was great but this has the extra oomph when chopping hardwoods needs a good 2foot stock to chop on
It's true what all the reviews say - this axe is amazing. Have been struggling to split some large (24") seasoned rounds of ash with my old maul. With the Fiskars X27 I split in 2 hours what would have taken 20 hours with the old one. Requires a slightly different technique, but once you've got it there's no stopping this thing. A word of warning - I have since tried to split some smaller logs and the X27 feels like overkill, so unless you're splitting very large logs all the time one of Fiskars' slightly smaller axes might give you a wider range of use.
I bought this with some trepidation but my fears were soon dispelled as the axe cut cleanly through newly cut logs with hardly any sticking and an excellent splitting action. As long as it is kept sharp it will give long service
Great product - quite uncanny how light it is, but tough - it is really easy to use
Very well made and much better axe than my previous one. Splits logs a treat. Very pleased indeed.
A fabulous axe, with a knack of chopping thorough logs much bigger than it has any business too. forget your much bigger maul and just buy one of these, save the energy and chop for a lot longer.
Excellent splitting axe, half the weight of previous one but more efficient. Very pleased with the purchase.
Great axe. If you want to split logs this is the axel you'll need. You don't need to pay loads, this is great value and great performance. Handle is comfortable, it's a joy to use. sharpener is not the same quality as the axe but does an acceptable job
Very good splitting axe good balance and movement. Handy sharpener to boot pleased with the purchase and value for money.
This was bought as a birthday present for my son and he is highly delighted. splitting the logs with ease.
The best splitting axe i have ever used, let alone owned. I am a tree surgeon so dealing with logs is something i do regularly. This axe is great for me to take on the job or split logs at home. The design stands out against any other axe on the market, it is effortless and a pleasure to use. I would recommend this axe to anyone
Brilliant axe. Joy to use. still managing to look forward to trying to reduce 3 large ash trees into firewood!
Extremely good at its job despite its lightness it splits logs much better than more traditional axes and does not stick in the log. It is generally less tiring to use for long periods
Pleased with product,easy to handle
Best splitting axe i have ever used.Splits without effort. Just let the axe do the work!
Wow i had my doubts when i thought i put the axe to the test on some beech, but i can say it made easy work of splitting the logs. Excellent axe all round.
An excellent axe. Very good splitting but not too heavy so efficient to split large quantities of logs. Had the older version for many years which was shorter but the new x27 splits much more effectively. I have not seen a better axe. Not rated reliability but assume this will be as good as my other fiskars axes.
A good quality product. Pleasing to use and much more effective than my previous axe (which lost it's head)
An absolutely brilliant piece of kit and a 100% recommendation for both splitter and supplier !
I have other fiskars kit which i have been very pleased with, hence was drawn to his product. This axe is no exception, it is an excellent piece of kit. the build quality is excellent and it is well balanced. I would expect a new axe to glide through most reasonably sized logs, but using this was effortless. Tellingly, the axe had no problem splitting very knotted wood, and this was far easier than with my existing axe. the axe comes with a nifty 'head protector' which is useful. i would recommend this splitting axe if you don't mind spending that bit extra.
Ordered this because of great reviews . Not disappointed excellent when splitting logs and very comfortable to use.
I'm new to splitting logs, so bought this axe based on web reviews. i am not disappointed. Ok, i've never tried any other axe or splitter, but for what i want, it's great. Not too heavy, and with a good swing, will split most seasoned logs first time. stays sharp, and no adverse shocks through the handle. i would recommend this axe.
Wow. For years i have been splitting logs with a maul, and it is hard work. A friend bought one of these splitting axes and sang its praises, so thought i would give it a go. Half the weight of the maul, and splits logs much more easily. Had been worried that it would stick in logs (a problem common to normal axes) but it really does not. Excellent tool. Really cannot recommend enough.
As most arborists will tell you, this is probably the best splitting axe at any price. The anti-stick blade really works and is much more easily removed when wedged in a log than a maul's. The lightweight construction means more accuracy and speed (and less strain on you). Having previously used heavy mauls i'm now converted. A pleasure to use. But mind your toes - it's very sharp!
An outstanding high quality axe, would highly recommend. Great service and delivery. Thank you.
Well i have found this to be a great axe. Ok it's light and wasnt sure how strong it would be but i really cant find fault at this stage. i've chopped about 4 cube of logs so far and its still super sharp. great product and seems to put up well with heavy use.
Did a bit of homework prior to choosing this axe. The build quality is excellent and it is very nicely balanced. Not too heavy but allows a well-aimed swing at speed giving excellent results. Free sharpener was a bonus (thanks!) and with the handle / guard, its the complete package when it comes to log-splitting. Highly recommended.
I did some research before buying the log splitting axe - it does what it says.. And you get what what you pay for, quality and the right tool for the job. Tooled up were the best price.
As you would want.
I had some real narley oak to split i thought it would be a nightmare job, this axe went through it real easy i was surprised. Defo worth it. X
I was cynical as to whether this axe would live up to the hype. However, i was astounded as to the ease with which this axe would split logs. i had one log that was 11 inches wide and 29 inches long and the fiskars split it from top to bottom with one easy blow. can't wait to do some more splitting!
Excellent excellent I pride myself on only buying best tools, regards Alan.
Excellent tool. the service from tooled-up was outstanding.
Excellent maul - much better than my existing one. Light and nicely balanced and good quality - should last for many years. It was dispatched quickly and i was informed by email about the delivery date and time. Very impressed.
Superb axe. Excellent weight and balance. Easy to handle and to swing. Breaks dry logs easily with moderate effort from me. Lip at the end of the handle gives a secure positive feel in the hand. Tooled-up price is excellent too. Delivery was quick once the axe had been brought in from the supplier. Hard to imagine a better axe than this. Best to see videos for sound advice on how to use it safely and effectively.
I bought this axe to replace a 'cheap' one that I have been using for years. Unfortunately it is nowhere near as good as the cheap £25 one that i'm used to. Whilst it is very sharp, I find this a hinderance with freshly cut wood as it is always getting stuck into either my block or the wood being cut. The chisel on the head is also not as wide which adds to this effect, unfortunately I've given up with this axe and gone back to the 'trotters traders' £25 splitter in order to save time and get more first time splits. I have also noticed a few burrs on the blade, after only a weeks worth of splitting which is not an indication of a hard steel composition. On the positive side, it's a good length and and appears well made!
