Estwing Sure Split Wedge - A Must-have Tool for Outdoorsmen

Estwing Sure Split Wedge is a wood-splitting wedge with a revolutionary concept in design which makes splitting wood fast and easy. The 9-inch wedge has a fast taper head and 1-7/8-Inch cutting edge for easy starting. Not only does it offer a good start, but also ensures a comfortable splitting action when it progresses through the wood. The Sure Split Wedge's fins permit extra wedge action and the sledge will continue the split through the wood line for reliable splitting.

Splitting Wedge vs Maul? Some may find log-splitting wedge quite new and have never used it. This lightweight, portable metallic tool is actually great for splitting a harder and larger wood that a splitting maul cannot split. As the name suggests, a wood split wedge is a wedge-shaped piece of metal that can be driven into a medium-to-large wooden block by slamming it with a sledgehammer or axe for easy splitting.

Tips from MTN Experts:

Many people may have hesitation of wood split wedges with a soft steel head and end up buying a hard steel one. However, the hard steel head can easily tear after uses. The harder the steel is, the more brittle it gets after being pounded on by an axe. Another issue is hitting the hard steel wedge with your axe can be very shrill and loud.
