Works ok, but when using on wet wood, when the head gets stuck and you use the handle to wiggle it out, the head gets loose and eventually falls out.
Worst thing. Opened the box swung the ax a dozen times and the head fell off. It's only glued in
After the reviews and the design, I was expecting something that was actually indestructible, but instead, I got an ax head that came loose the first time I used it and came off entirely the second day of use. The ax head appears to be tempered black but is really just coated in a paint or something. The ax has yet to split anything I have put it to. I am not saying I need it for simple tasks. I have 20-24" logs that I need to split, which is why I got this splitter. But even after hours of work on a single log, it has yet to split a single one. Very disappointing and will be asking for a refund.
Received order quickly, well packaged, it looks very well made.
