What is the splitting ax for?
The shape, weight and size of the ax parts determine its use. Among the axes available on the market,
is one of the most specialized varieties. As the name says,
a splitting ax
for splitting wood
. Such an ax is used not only in home conditions, it is also a tool used professionally in many different industries, e.g. in agriculture, horticulture, forestry or construction. Each ax consists of two basic parts, a head and a shaft. And the head has a head (rear part), blade (crucial for the functionality of the ax) and ear (hole for the handle).
How is a splitting ax built?
in an ax to chop and split wood
it's usually heavy. In some models, its weight can reach up to 4 kg. The handle in this ax is very long and straight. Thanks to this construction
the head hits the wood
at a slight angle, and this allows
even very hard material. The shape of the blade should be adapted to the task of splitting wood. The expanding head looks like a wedge. And thanks to this
is much easier. Thanks to the ax with a wedge, even if we do not cut the wood to the end, it will be strongly extended sideways and will certainly break by itself due to internal tensions.
