Rated 5 out of 5 Agree with Others
Have to agree with other reviewers. This was bought for splitting logs and, for that purpose, it is excellent.
But...this was the most expensive axe in the shop, so maybe I should expect this performance?

Hit a 3 foot high section of Poplar tree trunk.... It exploded. Marvellous tool, good exercise. Its as much fun cutting as it is burning.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sulli Testing log splitting maul
I bought the maul and log grenade to hopefully split 1/2 ton of new oak slabs from a recently felled 200 year old tree.
I was thinking a chainsaw might be needed but wanted to try hand splitting. The slabs were 2 to 3 feet in diameter and about a 12 to 18 inches thick. I started scoring the slabs with a circular saw and banging away with the grenade. After 40 minutes I stopped using the saw and just converted the stock into nice chunks of great firewood only using the maul straight off, only using the grenade for narly bits where the fibres go left and right. The maul is great to split or to pound the grenade. The maul head nearly never jams (unlike an axe). The chunks just fly off. Don't forget to split the logs on a good base of tree section. Picture shows 1/3 of the slabs. It took an afternoon complete the lot. I can't comment on reliability after a short test. Very satisfying. Good products.

I had some oak logs that were tough to split with an axe, this maul split them with ease
