New Way To Split Wood
They call it the "wood grenade" because it practically explodes firewood chunks into split pieces. It's a new idea in a splitting wedge and so simple you wonder why someone didn't think of it long ago.
The Wood Grenade is a coneshaped wedge that tapers down to a point rather than a splitting edge. It can be set in a chunk of wood by hand because of its point.
When struck with a maul or sledge hammer, the wedge penetrates into the wood, seeking the line of least resistance because of its conical shape.
The Wood Grenade comes in two styles and sizes. One is a 9-in. aluminum wedge designed for all wood species. Its suggested retail price is $20. The other model is a 6-in. steel wedge designed for splitting hardwoods. It has a suggested retail price of $15.45.
