Great lightweight splitter


Light, easy to use and splits most of my logs easily. The really twisted tough stuff requires a heavier maul such as the Fiskars Isocore (8lb head). Fiskars easily wins hands down over other top quality mauls/axes because of their extremely tough handles. I haven't needed to replace a handle since swapping to Fiskars many years ago.

Purchased for $139.00.

A serous splitter


Up until now I though that successfully splitting logs depended on two things - how big the splitting axe head was, and how hard you could strike with it. The X27 busts both those myths. It is relatively lightweight, and also pretty sharp. This means that you can swing it easily and it penetrates with each strike, forcing the log open. The handle is also super comfortable, and seriously strong - overstrikes have no effect at all. My entire collection of cheap oversized splitting axes have now become junk! This splitting axe is an absolute must if you have a job to do, and don’t want to waste time and energy attempting to do it.

Great tools


I have a outdoor boiler, cut firewood 3' and 40" this year, oak beech hickory and maple, used the x27 and the fiskars splitting maul, great tools one to two strikes with the maul and around three to four with the x27, awesome tools, Ecspecially if your firewood won't fit a wood splitter.

Love it


I kept breaking my other cheap axes but this one has not yet broken. It’s great it also has a twenty five year warranty. I purchased mine from our local hardware store at $173.90 in August twenty seventeen. I would recommend this product to anyone who has issues with other axes breaking also.

Lovely piece of kit


I had the trunks of three firs to cut up, the arborist having sawn them into fireplace-sized lengths. I thought about a powered log splitter then saw a review of the Fiskars vs and Aldi electric log splitter. The Fiskars was much faster. Off to Bunnings. The Fiskars X27 was fairly pricey - three times the cheapest log splitter. It's much lighter than a maul and lighter than my axe. I read axes are for cutting, not splitting. An axe tends to jam in the log.

This X27 has proved to be a great buy. It splits a log in one strike. In a couple of hours I had disposed of the trunks...and I'm 65.

I now own the Fiskars X21, X25 and X27 all beautiful aces that cut through the wood like butter, the axe is lightweight mostly and the weight is all in the head, the handle absorbs shock wonderfully, these aren’t products I couldn’t be without when it comes to splitting wood!

This is actually for the X25 Fiskars but it is identical apart from the length.


I was a little dubious also about the cost but it has been working really nicely so far.Quite well designed and a pleasure to use, certainly a lot easier on the body than the old blocksplitter I own (and have now put in storage). Used on some really twisted dense ironbark and did a good job, used on spotted gum the Fiskars basically carved it up.Sure there a few small dings in the sharp edge but the unit seems extremely solid, really happy I got this and every time I use it reinforces that, Love it !

Cant fault it so far. Just split 3 ton of wandoo and the same of jarrah


Had my last axe for a number of years and was a bit dubious about paying that much but well worth the money. Well done to all in the design team at Fiskars. I must admit to not having heard of the brand but when i get home i found all my wifes secataurs are the same brand. So that was hard case. Cheers

Expensive but you'll value the ease of use

Awesome, a real pleasure to use.


I have this and the X25 (720mm). Love them both. I find the X27, with its 200mm extra length, a lot safer. With the X25 because of its "shortness" if you do happen to miss or bounce of your target, you could wind up in hospital with a "split" shin :-( The extra 200mm in length allows the head to strike lower down therefore hopefully just hitting the dirt.
Have to highly recommend Fiskars on their quality of materials, the shaft, the head and the sheath are 1st grade. The do pass a mild vibration through when splitting, giving a different sensation to a regular maul, un-nerving at first but soon you will never go back to a regular log splitter.
