Black Forest Spalthammer


Regular price£125.50
The Black Forest Spalthammer is our unique inhouse designed 2.8kg heavyweight log splitting tool that is perfect for splitting large logs and heavy firewood.  The head has flared cheeks creating an ideal splitting wedge profile. The turn-around hook on the lower blade is helpful for moving and turning logs. The handle is not too long and has an ergonomic 'axe' style profile that is much more comfortable than a straight handle so often found on heavier splitting tools. Comes with our standard top grade cow hide leather adjustable blade sheath.
