Chopper1 Axe

Nov 22, 2017

The wood-cutting axe has remained virtually the same for hundreds if not thousands of years. After all, don’t fix what ain’t broke – right? Well the folks behind the Chopper1 Axe don’t want to reimagine the splitting axe. Rather, they wanted to improve upon an excellent and time-tested tool. And we think they’ve done just that.

This innovative outdoorsman’s tool takes everything that works about a traditional wood-cutting axe – the elongated hickory handle, the steel head, and the wedge-shaped blade – but adds a brand new mechanism. You see, within the head of the axe is a spring and pin system that, when driven down into a piece of wood, launches two arms on either side of the head that assist in splitting the wood apart. Now, you can chop more firewood with less time and effort – and without the necessity for a secondary mallet and wedge. And the best part is, this $90 tool is made right here in the USA.

Purchase: $90
