USA Made Splitting Froe
The handle is 16" and the blade 15" long. Typically, the "shakes" are split off 90 degrees to the annular rings. The back of the froe is struck with a mallet and as the wood begins to split, a quick wrenching motion on the handle completes the job. The 3-1/4 lb. Mini Maul can be used as a "striker."
