You can’t talk about spitting axes, or axes in general, without mentioning the Fiskars brand. Fiskars is a worldwide company selling everything from the axes and mauls you’ll see on this site to sewing supplies and classroom tools.
They didn’t start out as big as they are now however. It took the Finnish company over 350 years to become a global powerhouse.
While the size and span of their products line doesn’t really mean all that much to us, the fact that they made some seriously sweet axes does.
Gränsfors Bruk is a name that is synonymous with quality Swedish craftsmanship. For over 100 years, they have been doing one thing and one thing only: making awesome axes and mauls.
Every single axe head that comes from their forge is a work of art and love. Each head actually bears the name of the specific smith that manufactured it.
You can’t talk about splitting mauls without mentioning the manufacturer, Husqvarna. The Husqvarna Group is actually a Swedish company that’s over 300 years old.
They are very well known for making powered outdoor products like chainsaws and lawn mowers & tractors. But, they also make some extremely high quality axes and mauls, as you are about to find out.
There are three main Husqvarna splitting axes in their lineup. Click on the link below to read each specific Husqvarna axe review, scroll down to read them all, or check out this video which covers the basics such as length & weight before you decide, which axe you’re interested in.
