Comments about Wood Splitting Wedge:

The only thing I would want to clarify is that the tool is designed to split the wood along ONE axis, e.g., North to South. The crack will form on both sides of the tool, parallel to the V-shaped sides. The other two sides of the tool, the blunt sides, perform a wedging action to force the crack open wider. If the piece of wood does not split all the way through from top to bottom, it takes other wedges (various designs) to further enlarge the crack from the first wedge. That's why I bought two for me and one for my neighbor (he already had one).

      Comments about Wood Splitting Wedge:

      This is a very impressive wedge for splitting wood by hand, but although I've used it for a variety of hardwoods in logs ranging from 7" to 18" in diameter I have yet to see it so much as attempt to provide "force in four directions for more efficient splitting".
