Large universal axe for a range of wood cutting tasks 

  • The GARDENA Universal Axe 1400 A is a versatile cutting tool and ideal for splitting firewood
  • This includes hardwoods such as oak and beech, or the softwood of a resinous pine
  • It is equally suitable for limbing, cutting off roots and cutting through stronger branches
  • Due to the adapted head and blade design the axe is ideally suited for these different tasks
  • For clean blows, the well-balanced centre of gravity, which is close to the axe head, is an important feature, as it ensures proper weight distribution and consequently increased striking and splitting power
  • The break-proof head handle attachment, which withstands any load, is another impressive feature
  • Thanks to the hammer function, large logs are no problem, as you can drive in wedges simply and effectively
  • The join between the handle and head is protected by a riveted stainless steel impact protection
  • It protects the handle if you miss the log when splitting
  • The premium tool steel blade with a special coating will not let you down, as it significantly reduces frictional resistance and makes it easier to penetrate the wood
  • Wood resins also do not adhere so easily
  • When designing the axe, a lot of care was taken to ensure safe as well as easy handling
  • The plastic handle is glass-fibre reinforced and equipped with soft grip components that prevent the hands from slipping
  • In addition, the cow's foot (hook-shaped handle end) contributes to safety when sliding the hands up and down the handle
  • The powerful Universal Axe 1400 A is a quality product made in Europe and comes with a 25 year warranty from GARDENA
  • Express your vision with precision

The 25 year warranty ensures high quality

  • * For detailed warranty conditions, please refer to the enclosed operating manual or online at
  • This warranty does not affect your legal warranty claims
