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.

"The designer of the gun had clearly not been instructed to beat about the bush. 'Make it evil,' he'd been told. 'Make it totally clear that this gun has a right end and a wrong end. Make it totally clear to anyone standing at the wrong end that things are going badly for them. If that means sticking all sort of spikes and prongs and blackened bits all over it then so be it. This is not a gun for hanging over the fireplace or sticking in the umbrella stand, it is a gun for going out and making people miserable with." -Douglas Adams

“It is just as difficult and dangerous to try to free a people that wants to remain servile as it is to try to enslave a people that wants to remain free."
-Niccolo Machiavelli

The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all. -Mencken

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...

Bruce


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.
