Classic Line“-Axes with mirror polished blades, lacquered Hickory-Handle with leather-loop and
leather edge protector.
There aren’t many makers producing quality mauls these days, and Helko’s Classic Log Maul dominates the competition. Mauls are often overlooked as the simple, brutish ancestors of the traditional splitting axe. The characterization is not wholly inaccurate, but the fact remains that few axes can match the power and effectiveness of a well-made maul. This premium, high performance log maul features a heavy 6.5 pound head capable of splitting large logs, difficult trunks, and tough firewood. The turn-around hook on heel of the blade is useful for moving and turning logs. This maul was born with a sole purpose: To split tough wood. And it does it. If you are facing a cold winter and need help burning through a cord of wood, look no further. The head is buffed and polished to a highly reflective finish that reduces cutting friction and improves rust resistance.
