Chopping

Chopping consists of cutting a horizontal log into segments with multiple swift, sharp, downward strokes of a hatchet or axe. Our X5 Hatchet, X7 Hatchet and X15 Chopping Axe combine perfected weight distribution, advanced blade geometry, an ultra-sharp edge and virtually unbreakable design to maximize your performance. This smart combination of features allows the blade to bite three times deeper when chopping. With more blade penetration on each swing, you can chop more wood in less time, with less effort and hand strain. Our X5 Hatchet is a great choice for chopping kindling and small logs. Our X7 Hatchet is ideal for chopping kindling and small- to medium-sized logs. Both hatchets are lightweight, compact and portable, perfect for the on-the-go hiker or camper. Our X15 Chopping Axe offers the same specialized blade geometry as the hatchets with a longer handle to give you even more power with each swing. Choose the X15 Chopping for optimum performance on all your heavy-duty chopping jobs, or to make felling small trees quick and easy.

Splitting

Splitting consists of cutting a vertically positioned log in half with a single downward stroke of an axe. We recommend our X11, X17, X25 and X27 Splitting Axes for more splits with fewer hits. All of our splitting axes combine perfected weight distribution, advanced blade geometry, an ultra-sharp edge and virtually unbreakable design to maximize your performance. This smart combination of features allows the blade to bite deeper and disperse wood more effectively, offering more one-strike splits with each swing. You can split wood easier with X-Series Axes, so each job requires less time, less effort and less hand strain. Our X11 Splitting Axe is the perfect one-handed tool for splitting small- to medium-sized logs. To split small- to medium-sized logs with increased power and speed, our X17 Splitting Axe features a longer handle. Choose our X25 Splitting Axe to split medium- to large-sized logs with powerful strokes that disperse the wood from the blade for clean splitting. Ideal for taller users, our X27 Splitting Axe features a handle extended to a full 36" to make splitting extra-large logs easier than ever.
