We were up splitting wood at the hunting shack when my old man showed me his new birthday present my mom got him.  It's a Fiskars Splitting Axe.  At first I didn't think too much about it, but then I tried splitting a couple of logs.  It's lightweight, and it splits wood effortlessly.

Watch the difference in this video I quickly shot:


The built in wedge in the head is the key difference.  It doesn't get stuck in a log as bad as you can see in the video.  It also helps split the logs easier.  The light weight handle works great as well, and it's definitely something I will be using from now on.
