If you need to split logs and don't already have one of these, then do yourself a favour and buy one. You need a sledgehammer to 'make it work' but heck of a lot easier than using an axe...

Rated 5 out of 5Â by JonP779 Awesome log splitter
Having wasted sooo much time trying to split logs and tree trunk sections in the past with an axe I thought I'd try a grenade to split through a rather large silver birch tree that I had cut into sections in my garden.
The very hard trunk sections measured 22 inches side to side, and were 8 - 10 inches deep.
I tried a sharp axe to start with and it hardly made a mark.
I tapped the grenade in the middle of the wood and hit it in with a 7lb fibreglass handled sledge-hammer (bought at the same time). Once the top of the grenade was almost in you could hear a satisfying cracking sound as the wood started to split apart. The axe wouldn't split the 2 halves either, so I used the Grenade to split most of it. Easy Peasy. Whole tree now cut and split and in my woodshed.
If you are splitting logs - get one of these as you really won't regret it. It saves so much time and effort.

Great item, you will need a sledgehammer for most logs though

I had a large 80cm diameter log slice which I attempted splitting, about 30cm thick.
you need to split about 15cm from the edge, otherwise it does not work, it also will not split the slice if it is thicker than that. It was oak, hence might be tougher, but the grenade can be hammered out again if it does not do the job.
