Vipukirves Axe

OK, so reinventing the wheel may be a fruitless endeavor, but reinventing the axe… now that’s certainly possible. And leave it to the Finnish to finish the job.

The Vipukirves Axe features a unique design that promises to do away with many of the issues that leave your wood-splitting skills looking more like Paul Wall’s than Paul Bunyan’s. Thanks to its unique lever action, upon striking the wood, the axe automatically turns to the right and detaches the chopped portion from the log. What’s nice is that the blade doesn’t become lodged in the log; it’s just ready for another swing. (Bonus: it doesn’t matter whether you’re wearing flannel or not). This lets you easily split logs in seconds, which in turn, gives you more time to grow a beard. Watch the video below. [Purchase]
