    • Item: 78546935


    Split larger logs in one strike with an axe that maximizes your efficiency and includes a heavy-duty sheath.

    The X25 Splitting Axe is a great choice for anyone who needs to split medium- to large-sized logs quickly. Like every X-Series Hatchet or Axe, the X25 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. Since you can split wood more easily with the X25, each job requires less time, less effort and less hand strain.


    • Ideal for splitting medium- to large-sized logs
    • Designed for maximum efficiency to give you more one-strike splits
    • Perfected balance and power-to-weight ratio increases swing speed to multiply power, much like an aluminum baseball bat
    • Advanced bevel convex blade geometry adds power and makes the blade easier to remove from wood
    • Unique head shape disperses wood from the blade for clean splitting
    • Proprietary blade-grinding technique provides a sharper edge for better contact and cleaner cuts
    • Hardened forged steel blade stays sharp longer than traditional axes
    • Low-friction blade coating powers through wood and prevents head from getting stuck
    • Inseparable PermaHead insert-molded head will not loosen and prevents overstrike breakage
    • Shock-absorbing DuraFrame handle is lightweight yet stronger than steel to prevent overstrike damage
    • Non-slip grip reduces hand strain and improves control
    • Designed in Billnäs, Finland, building on a 360-year history of the world’s best forged tools
    • Included sheath helps protect blade and the user
    • Lifetime warranty


    • Axes and Striking
        • How should I care for my axe?
          • Store the axe in a dry place
          • Keep the head lightly oiled when not in use to prevent rust
          • For safety, and to keep the blade sharp, use the protective sheath when the axe is not in use
        • What is the difference between chopping and splitting?
          • Chopping consists of cutting a horizontal log into segments with multiple swift, sharp, downward strokes of a hatchet or axe
          • Splitting consists of cutting a vertically positioned log in half with a single downward stroke of an axe

    I purchased the X25 Splitting Axe 28 axe and the hatchet this morning, 4/19/14. Split some wood and chop down an 8" diameter sapling when my chainsaw wouldn't start. Both products are lightweight, balanced well and performed great. I am a short left-handed female (hard to find lightweight hand tools that are comfortable to use with small hands) - all of my Fiskars products are awesome; would definitely recommend purchasing!


    I did a lot of research on splitting axes before I bought the X25. The other reviews are exactly right. The day I got the axe the wind chill was in the teens, but I had to try it. It was amazing. I'm a 67 years young woman and this is my first splitting axe. It was so easy to use, well balanced, just the right weight and length for me (I'm 5'7") and just like it says, it splits in one strike. I am extremely impressed with this product and would recommend it to anyone. The nice locking sturdy head cover is a great feature also.


    After moving to a small town and being in the process of buying two houses both with fireplaces I needed to buy an axe. I went to the local hardware store here and did a little shopping and found an axe that I thought would suit my needs. After a year and a half of splitting wood this fiberglass handled axe "broke" the head separated from the handle and I searched for an epoxy to repair it but to no avail. With Winter coming on fast I decided to go to all places Wal-Mart and came across the X25 Splitting Axe. I am familiar with the Fiskars name so I thought to myself "If this axe is as good as their scissors there is no way I can lose." So I bought this item and brought it home and went to work cutting wood, It was time to split what i cut and it was like a hot knife going through butter. I Love this Axe!!! The weight and the splitting power is unprecedented to the other products out there. FISKARS All the Way!!!!

    I recently bought an old-school pre-owned axe at an estate sale which was already sharpened. I struggled mightily with some old Maple trees that were felled on my lot. I just picked up the X25 and was completely shocked at how easily it split large logs. It is worth every penny. Please keep making your products in Finland! There are many of us that still appreciate quality and craftsmanship and are willing to pay a premium for it.


    I normally do not write reviews but my X25 is the best. I bought the x25 about 5 years ago not to sure what to think, how"s this little axe gonna go through oak? My dad laughed at me when i pulled it out of the truck..your gonna need a bigger axe than that, well after the first swing we were both amazed.!!! No more splitting maul for me. The x25 uses A LOT LESS effort than a maul so anybody thinking about this purchase, think no more..!!!


    One of the best things that i have spent my money on. Bought one of these spliting axes a few years back when I first started spliting wood. i often choose to split the logs my self with my axe then to use my friends log spliter its just faster that way. the unique stright egde of the axe keeps the axe head from sticking or getting stuck in a log that just wont split "right away" i have yet to come across a log that this axe wont split. it may take a few extra hits at time but it normaly gets the job done. over all: very efficiant light weight wont wear you out so quickly dosent get wedged in logs works even better on frozen logs AND ITS A MUST BUY!!!!!!!!!!


    I have never written a review before but felt I had to for all of those who split wood the old fashioned way....by hand with a maul. This is by far the best splitting axe I have ever used. It is so light weight that it is easy to swing even with a heavy coat on. I have a hydraulic log splitter sitting in my back yard unused because of this axe. Great design and a product that I recommend to all. Thank you for making heating my home with wood less of a chore!


    This is one of the few products that I bothered to ever "review". I had purchased a pair of Fiskar 3X Loppers some time ago and one of the handles broke. Got a replacement from Fiskar with ease. Loved that! Then I had been wanting to upgrade my old ax that I utilize to split mesquite wood here in Central and South Texas. So I did my due diligence on-line and researched a few axes. Most reviews of the Fiskar X25 and X27 were gushing and I thought "Could they really work that well?". So due to my past Lopper experience with Fiskar and the reviews I decided to give them a shot. I'm only about 5' 7" so I opted to purchase the X25. Once I got the feel for the X25 I was like "Holy Cow!!!"...this ax is probably the best money I've ever spent on any one tool....EVER...and having grown up on a small farm/ranch in South Texas I've used my share of tools. The mesquite wood I was splitting seemed like it was splitting itself sometimes...it was that easy. I was almost disappointed that I split my wood too fast because I was enjoying swining the ax and seeing the results...amazing. I did have to adjust my swing...no longer needed to really do the round-house over the shoulder or even over my head....that generated too much power. Instead I just litterly raise it slighty to my head with my left hand over my right instead of my right on top of left(I'm right handed)....plenty of power still and able to hit more precisely with the ax. If you are in the maket for an ax or just need an excuse to get one of the best tools out there ....get yourself a Fiskar X25 it is truly an awesome tool. Happy splitting!
