Some splitting mauls are truly works of art with custom hand-forged steel heads that bare the smith’s name etched into with beautifully crafted wooden handles. Some mauls and splitting axes are almost too sexy to use. That’s not the case for this pair or Truper splitting mauls.
These two steel beasts mean business. They are true workhorses. That doesn’t mean they don’t carry a certain aesthetic of their own, but these were manufacturing with mainly one thing in mind – function.
There are two basic models to choose from, and your choice mostly depends on the job you have in mind. For small to medium jobs, the lighter 8 pound version should do just find. For larger tasks, you may want to opt for the heavier 12 pound version.

Whether you opt for the 12-pound version or the 8-pound version, you’re going to get a very solid maul for a reasonable price. A Truper axe isn’t going to be as eye-catching as a hand-forged Granfors axe or a unique Leveraxe, but it’s going to do the job just fine. If you’re looking for something to be your workhorse for log splitting without breaking the bank, you can’t go wrong with either of the two choices.
