Real Steel Wood Splitting Axe

No matter how complex forestry and camping equipment gets, you’ll always find yourself going back to the simplest of equipment. A case in point is the axe–an implement that has existed in some form since the Stone Age . Take, for instance, the Real Steel Wood Splitting Axe.

This hatchet-style tool is a good example of how gear with a 1.5 million-year-old lineage has endured. Now, artisans and manufacturers are infusing them with 21st-century innovations.

What’s more, they won’t shred your wallet, especially when you can find one for 30% off. Normally $18.60, you can get the Real Steel Wood Splitting Axe for $13.02.

Let’s take a brief design tour.

Real Steel Wood Splitting Axe Features and Design

Real Steel 0411 hatchet

We’ll kick things off with the business end of this axe (or, as the manufacturer also refers to it, a “camp hatchet”).

From what the company tells us, they’ve gone out of their way to strengthen the 0411’s head. Made out of drop-forged, heat-treated alloy steel, it should yield enhanced durability. Furthermore, it includes enhanced profiling.

Equally important is the handle–14 inches of hickory. Additionally, Real Steel has laser engraved their wood splitting axe for improved grip and comfort.

And based on the numbers, this tool is light. Weighing just 2.2 pounds, users should experience less stress and fatigue during long periods of chopping.

Moreover, Real Steel says that this will increase swing speed and, in turn, splitting power.
