Rated 4 out of 5Â by MrCM Roughneck maul
A basic but decent maul. Works very well on freshly cut wood but not so effective on wood that's been lying around for a few weeks - it tends to bounce off because the blade is designed as a wedge rather than a sharp blade. I bought this because the "smart-splitter" I use for splitting wood wouldn't cope with some of the biggest/knottiest rounds. This maul coped pretty well. I also used a wood grenade, which I hit with the flat end of the maul. For only a few pounds extra, it's probably worth buying the set with the maul, hand-axe and grenade together...

Very strong... heavy and strong enough to split large tree trunk style cuttings, say 40cm across 30 cm deep. Bought only to cut wood (myself) and 100% perfect for that.
I'm not a Lumberjack but I'm ok now...!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by ducassos ok for job but!!
this heavier 8 -lb splitter is good weight for logs, requires less effort . BUT the way the head is sealed to the fibre glass shaft is not quite so good, after a fair bit of use (about 6-12 months ) the head will come loose. Not so clever with 8-lb of solid steel flying through the air into my neighbours garden just missing his car!! cheaper ones from wicks are even worse. didn't last long at all.

I fell in love the moment I swung this bad boy. It's made my life so much easier and glides through wood like a knife does butter.
Just get one even if you don't need one, you'll feel more manly!
