Kindling Cracker Firewood Splitter
Kindling Cracker Firewood Splitter

The cast iron Kindling Cracker Firewood Splitter, which has neither moving parts nor sharp projections to cause injury, is designed to provide a safe, quick way to make kindling. To split a piece of wood, one places it on the chisel-like blade inside of the frame (which is normally screwed onto a stump or other level surface) and strikes the wood with a maul/hammer. Splitting reportedly requires less force than an axe or hatchet. (Two models are available.)

Caution symbol Caution Notes: Tasks like tree felling, brush clearing, log splitting, and wood cutting are dangerous, and utmost caution should be used to protect the operator and bystanders. Follow the recommendations of the equipment/tool manufacturer for proper use and for necessary protective equipment needed for safe operation.
