Product Description & Reviews
The Saxon Splitter is a German crafted splitter with a head designed to deliver highly effective strikes that increase splitting efficiency. The heel of the axe blade (bottom point of edge) features a small turnaround hook for log moving. This is a very capable splitting tool that handles like an axe but has the splitting power of a full size maul. Each piece is hand crafted by Helko's Master Smiths, lifelong artisans of metalcraft. The Smith uses tongs on an open face drop forge to shape the head, a skill requiring impressive control and hand eye coordination that can only be achieved through years of practice. Once satisfied with his work, the Smith hammers the Helko Werk crown logo into the cheek. Only minimal supplementary work is performed, allowing each blade to proudly display its forging marks. No two pieces are exactly alike.
