The X17 Splitting Axe is an ideal choice for anyone who needs to split small- to medium-sized logs with power and speed. Like every X-Series Hatchet or Axe, the X17 combines good weight distribution, advanced blade geometry, an ultra-sharp edge and virtually unbreakable design to maximize your performance. This combination of features allows the blade to disperse wood more effectively, offering more one-strike splits with each swing. Since you can split wood more easily with the X17, each job requires less time, less effort and less hand strain.

Axe Designed For Performance

Unlike traditional axes that can be heavy, quick to dull and easy to break, X-Series axes combine perfected weight distribution, advanced blade geometry, an ultra-sharp edge and virtually unbreakable design to maximize your performance.

Proudly made in Finland, the axes are designed to be simple, functional and effective, helping you get more work done in less time. This design earned the X-Series axes the international red dot "best of the best" product design award for the garden category in 2010, recognizing outstanding design quality and trendsetters. A wide range of sizes and styles makes it easy to find the X-Series axe perfect for you, whether you're chopping kindling, chopping logs, splitting logs or felling trees.

More Power at Impact

All X-Series axes feature a smart design that distributes the majority of the weight to the axe head while keeping the stronger-than-steel FiberComp handle lightweight. This perfected weight distribution provides an optimal power-to-weight ratio that increases swing speed to multiply power, much like an aluminum baseball bat. X-Series axes give you more power at impact to help you get more done with every swing.

Virtually Unbreakable

X-Series axes don't just outlast other axes--they're virtually impossible to break. A shock-absorbing FiberComp handle is lightweight yet stronger than steel, so it can't be broken through overstrike. The hardened, forged steel blade won't chip or crack, and the innovative PermaHead design is over-molded so the blade can't be separated from the handle.

Superior Blade Design

The blades of X-Series axes are crafted with a proprietary grinding technique that provides a sharper edge for better contact and cleaner cuts. The hardened, forged steel blades also stay sharp longer than traditional axes, and a low-friction blade coating helps power through the tough logs and prevents the axe head from getting stuck. X-Series Splitting Axes also include advanced bevel convex blade geometry that adds even more power and disperses wood from the blade for cleaner, one-strike splits.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • On a scale of 1-10, how useful is this super splitting axe against a zombie?

    I would caution against putting too much stock in this for zombie protection. Pay special note - the poster is asking "axe vs zombie". I have no doubt this will deliver a redundant killing force to a zombie skull. However you run the risk of the axe getting temporarily stuck. Now ask yourself - when was the last time you faced just ONE zombie? It never happens anymore. Maybe your grandpa had stories about man to man zombie combat, but now we're talking MUMMIES, not zombies. This isn't 1932 anymore. Zombies have evolved the ability to run and attack in packs. With today's zombie threat, you're best served by a light thin sword, or maybe the Remington pole chainsaw (but only with a Fiskars brush clearing machete for backup, as eventually both fuel and ammo become scarce).

  • How to replace handle on Fiskars Axe?

    Life time warranty. Contact them and they will send you a new one.

  • Will it stand up for split the wood, I'm splitting lots of pine wich requires hitting my maul?

    Depends whats the diameter you will be splitting? If less than 20 inches this would work effortlessly. As for the hold up ability hands down this bad boy is a lifer! You would have to lose it to have it not last!
