Wonder of WetterlingsThough my recent purchase was just a new handle for my splitting axe, I've been using a Wetterling Splitting axe for years. Of my many many tools it may be my favorite and surely one of the most indispensable as I depend on wood heat almost exclusively. Good design is everything, function and form, and their splitting axe embodies the above and is a joy to use. It's a rare event that I reach for my mall as the axe is up fo the task, opening up the grain with a minimum of expended energy. When one thinks of the force and impact with each strike, you have to appreciate the fine fitting and wonder of the hickory handle. And it feels good to the grip as well. A brief aside...my purchase was a preemptive strike(no pun intended) as my decade old handle is still in service, though chipped and scarred from cords and cords of wood, but in the event that it does one day give up the ghost I intend to be ready to "swing" on, as there are a few things in life you can't do without.
Wetterlings sm splitting axeJust received the newest version of sm splitting axe. The blade is 2 1/2 rather than 3 1/2, much lighter and comes with about a 16 in. straight handled not curved 22 in. Bring the old robust version back. The new rev. Is not quite up to the task.
