As I mentioned you can get a workable edge with a good file.....a puck will make it better.....I use sticks to get it shaving sharp.

Watch your hands...easy to get cut

Is a Lansky puck decent or should one pay 8x the price for a Gransfors one?
Best resource for learning the technique?
Should a splitting axe be very sharp? I read that a maul should not be sharp.

I'm in the market for one now as well, decided to go with the Schrade SCAXE2L: https://www.amazon.com/Schrade...3N0AYMAZR374GJHQAEVS

Looks like a good value, they have a smaller one, but I like the longer 15" handle, it is still light and portable.

I bought the Gransfors (edit: Hults, not Gransfors) Bruks Gran small splitting axe. I had a REI gift card and there was a 20% off coupon so I got it for $31 delivered. Score!

Now, to learn how to sharpen an axe...

You did fine. Hults Bruk has been around a long time and makes fine tools. You'll love it.

The Lansky works for me just fine

I gave up on REI due to their anti-gun SJW stance.
