LEVERAXE CLASSIC MX is very efficient and enjoyable tool for chopping woods.
LEVERAXE® is a prime example of a Finnish design and innovation. The head has been forged and the handle is made of hickory. The product is high quality and the head has a 10 years warranty. Product has a "Design from Finland"-mark. LEVERAXE is an efficient tool for chopping firewood, possessing many advantages, such as speed and work safety, over traditional axes and small hydraulic log splitters. LEVERAXE separates sections from the log using a unique lever action that allows logs with branches to be split into firewood in seconds. The splitting force of LEVERAXE is considerably stronger than with a traditional axe.
Strike and loosen!
LEVERAXE has an ingenious design. Upon striking the log, it automatically turns to the right and detaches the chopped portion from the log. LEVERAXE functions like a convention axe with the exception that the user must loosen his/her the grip on the handle when the blade strikes the log. Chopped sections are removed with a single strike and the blade doesn't become lodged in the log, but keeps it in the same place and ready for the next strike.
I was hoping that this worked as well as the videos I had watched. It really does work well. One has to adapt a bit because it operates differently. One has to hold the handle loosely so it can turn, and one has to aim along the sides of the log. It does not split well if one aims right at the center. After learning how to us it, I am very pleased. This is much lighter and more efficient than a traditional ax. An added benefit is that the ax never hits the splitting stump so you can keep a splitting stump for a long time.
I am very happy(3/6/2017)
I am very happy that I agreed with an advice to buy an unusual type of axe though I had not expected it would work better than those used for thousand years. But I was exited with it and I really recommend LEVERAXE to everybody.
