    Welcome!
    You’ll find many posts about them here. I’ve got both the super splitting axe and their maul as well. I do enjoy them both when splitting is easy. I break out the hydro most of the time.

    Great to have ya! Share some pics and enjoy it here.

    Welcome to the club buddy! I thought that looked like a fiskars in your truck the other week. I have the splitting axe and the isocore and love them both. From what I've heard from other members their return policy is great if anything goes wrong with it.

    There are quite a few PA members. Some of them are fairly close to us including the man that put this all together Scotty Overkill and his partner in tree climbing blacksmith. Spirit of Two Socks and TurboDiesel are nearby too. I have yet to get out of my little bubble and shake their hands though :picard:

    I'm glad you joined.

    Agreed! Especially now that the bugs are gone.

    The Fiskars are generally well-like by those who split by hand. I have both the x27 and the Isocore, and they both have their place. If I had to choose one, it would be the Isocore. But the x27 comes in a close second.

    Welcome Micah Anderson. I was in Belleville and Allensville yesterday. Central PA is a great place to live if you heat with firewood. Glad you joined!

    What other said. I hand split everything with the iso core and splitting axe. Gets the job done for me with a lot of exercise and sweat!
