Fiskars X46 versus Fiskars X46

Recommended Posts

A Man can never have enough tools, so I thought a heavy maul would be a good idea
 
I thought that I was buying this
 
 
But what was delivered was this
 
 
 
 
 
Since Amazon or anywhere else do not seem to do the maul I opted to keep the axe and test it.   
 
I think that they are both mauls really and I may have been fobbed off with an out of production model
 
However it did split a very heavy bit of knotty yew quite impressively.  It is so bloody heavy at 8lbs that I shall only use it on the occasional difficult log or give it to one of the lads to tire him out to keep him out of mischief.
It is still the X27 that is King

We found one of those highly polished green stone axes in a field a few years ago.  It apparently came from Langdale.

I have not fitted it to a shaft yet!

Only thing I use my splitting maul for is knocking back a knotty bit of elm that won't split and gets stuck on the hydraulic splitter - nice and heavy for that but sod splitting anything with it - too old for that!
