Great for splitting wood the old fashion way. It is wedged at the right angle allowing it to sink into the wood and still separate the pieces.

I purchased this maul at the beginning of the season. I was expecting a long life from it with the way it was designed. I used it a few days and was impressed by the ease that it splits the wood. The weight is just right, it swings easily and is balanced well. The only concern I have is that the material that they put to act as a shock absorber at the junction of the head and handel is now tearing away from contact with the wood at times. Otherwise, I am completely satisfied.

Pretty, but flimsy
I bought it on a Friday afternoon, and busted the head off Sunday morning. Don't get me wrong, I expected to break it, just not in the middle of my first tree! The handle had a separate inner core that completely shattered, leaving it unrepairable. The cushion below the head was also a bad idea. It started to catch, and rip on the burled white oak.

Works great! Would buy again.
I recently broke the wooden handle on my 8 pound maul and got to looking for something better. Enter the Roughneck 8 pound maul. Nice fiberglass handle, perfect weight, almost makes splitting wood enjoyable. Definitely a quality piece.

Woodcutting is no fun. Driving wedges through hardwood isn't for sissies. I tried a friends maul after watching him bust 12" white oak logs apart with ease. I've since replaced my sledge and wedge with this 8# maul and I don't think I'll ever go back. Even my son commented on how much easier it was and the fiberglass handle holds up well. I haven't replaced a handle this year !
Anything that takes a step of the splitting saves me energy and this maul does it. If you cut wood, you need this tool.
