Drop forged from American high carbon steel. Correctly beveled around the "struck" face to deter chipping and cracking. Designed to split logs, firewood, stave and other wood products. Sharpened and ready to use, the wedge is beveled for efficient splitting and coated with a clear laquer. 24cm long, weight 2.35kg. When using wedges, always use a woodchopper maul or axe to make a starting notch. Wedges should be struck by a sledge hammer or woodchopper maul with a larger striking face than the struck face of the wedge. Eye protection must be worn. Made in USA by Council Tool Company.
