Gransfors Bruks Splitting Maul
Aptly named Hammer-Poll Axe. Designed for splitting apart large chunks of wood, "rounds". The maul's head is heavier compared to the Splitting Axes.
The poll IS designed for pounding on a splitting wedge.
The head weighs 5 1/2 lb and has a 2 1/2" face. The hickory handle is 31", has circular grooves at the grip, a steel collar near the head, and comes with a grain leather sheath.
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTE
Anyone removing a sheath from the Gränsfors Bruk axe must replace it gently by first feeding the heel of the cutting edge into the base of the sheath, (there is that little pocket at the bottom of the sheath), followed by feeding the top portion of the cutting edge into the top of the sheath. This should prevent a sheath from being damaged. A cut sheath is usually damaged by someone trying to simultaneously feed the whole edge into the sheath at once or wiggling it in spite of feeling some resistance.
The axes are VERY sharp and will readily cut a sheath that is not put on with care.
If and when such damage occurs replacement sheaths are available for purchase.
