Rated 5 out of 5 by from Roughneck log splitter Great, product works with a bit of muscle. Nothing to go wrong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value Bought on Saturday and did a serious amount of log splitting over the weekend. The wood grenade worked well with the 6lb maul and took a lot of beating with no issues. The maul did need a bit of work with a file to put a better edge on it and after that it was fine. Great value.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sharpening required So, I bought this package instead of a single splitting maul as they didn't have a maul in stock and because of the looney UK knife laws (I assume) they don't deliver mauls, axes, etc. Perfectly happy with delovering hammers though. I doubt they would need to worry much as the maul and hatchet (called an axe on the box, but it' s a hatchet) were both blunt. The maul exceptionally so (the splitting edge had a flat surface, no V shape to speak of) and the hatchet didn't hold up to my used and abused wood handled one, though I did sharpen it a few years ago. Trying the maul out before putting a (dull enough, a maul isn't supposed to be axe sharp) splitting edge on it had it just glance off the wood with barely an impression made on the wood. Afterwords it worked a charm. My only issue being is that the rubber over moulding just before the head of the maul gets torn up badly if you overshoot a log even slightly. The "wood grenade" is an excellent tool, especially when working with freshly cut wood that just won't split easily. You can knock it in with a club hammer or the back end of the maul. You'll probably only get the purported 4 directional split on dried and seasoned logs. With the maul sharpened up I was able to split about half a tree into kindling in an hour and a half. Trunk width was about one foot across. I did choose to use my own older wood handled hatchet as the fibreglass handles feel like they carry more vibration into your hands than wood ones, even with the rubber grips, though maybe I'm just used to the ergonomics of my old hatchet better. It gets 3 stars because I needed to play around and sharpen things up first and the 25 year warranty on the box is utter rubbish if you look it up. Unlike the leatherman 25 year warranty where they'll replace tools that you've even misused (I've heard of them replacing multitools that broke because they were being used as a hammer, etc) the 25 year warranty only covers defects out of the factory, so if that handle snaps during normal use, the warranty probably isn't going to cover your tool. It seems to only cover faults that were there out of the factory, making the whole 25 year thing more of a marketing wank feature than warranty. In short, they could be worse, they could be better and they should be sharp out of the factory. Running something on a grinding wheel takes all of two minutes. Sharpening it with a handheld vibration sander takes 10-20 mins to get something that resembles an edge. As for their "25 year warranty" on the box, don't count on it.

Small axe and maul are both blunt

Used this set for the first time to find both are blunt and unable to cut wood. Are they supposed to be supplied like this or is this a fault? Please respond to this question or I will have little choice but to return for a refund.
Asked by: Alantw2004

The splitting maul seems to be blunt

Is the Maul supposed to have a rounded edge to the blade ? Is the customer expected to sharpen the maul ? It literally just bounces off everything, no matter how hard and accurately it is swung.Would grinding an edge to it ruin the steel ?
Asked by: steviemcjj

The 6lb maul that can be purchased separately has a ‘screw though handle attachment’. Is the maul head in this set attached the same way? Are there any other differences between the two?

Asked by: Woodsplinters

Is the splitting maul meant to be blunt? Or should it be ready and therefore pre-sharpened? In its current state it just bounces off logs

Asked by: LukeF

Can this equipment be used to split open a tree stump?
