Splitting axe for medium-sized logs of wood 

  • The Splitting Axe 1600 S from GARDENA is the right axe to get your hands on for splitting medium-sized logs
  • The wedge-shaped blade head geometry is designed to splay the wood so that you can split logs for firewood more easily
  • The centre of gravity is close to the axe head, which ensures proper weight distribution as well as increased striking and splitting power
  • Thanks to the break-proof head and handle connection, you can use as much force as you need with every blow
  • The hammer function on the head of the axe is used to drive wedges in easily and effectively if you want to split a larger log or chop firewood
  • There's always a chance that a swing can sometimes miss, but the riveted stainless steel protection on the handle means that the axe won't get damaged at all
  • The high-quality tool steel blade with a special coating helps to significantly reduce frictional resistance to facilitate penetration into the wood
  • Resins do not stick so easily, thanks to the coating
  • Easy and safe handling is one of the outstanding features of the Splitting Axe 1600 S
  • The glass fibre-reinforced plastic handle enables a high impact force through the use of the light but robust material
  • For even more comfort, the axe is equipped with a soft grip that prevents slipping, while the hook-shaped handle end offers a high level of safety when sliding the hands up and down the handle
