About Axes & Mauls

Split and chop large pieces of wood with these two-handed axes and mauls. Axes have a thinner, sharper blade for chopping wood across the grain. Mauls have a blunter, fatter blade for splitting wood along the grain.

Sometimes referred to as single-bit axes, flat-backed axes have a heavy, flat butt at the back of the head and a sharp blade at the front of the head. When the axe is swung, the butt concentrates the cutting force behind the blade. These single-blade axes are suitable for chopping down small- and medium-sized trees and for chopping wood across the grain.
