Kindling Cracker: The Best Way to Split Wood

Inspiration Strikes

The Kindling Cracker delivers real-world ingenuity from an unlikely source — a school-age student who was determined to avoid injuries from splitting firewood into kindling. The simple, safe and easy-to-use design that began as a science fair project has become a perennial award winner, from science fairs in New Zealand to regional and international recognition from Scientific American, International TeenBusiness, Google and more.

"I am delighted with the effectiveness and simplicity of this tool. It makes short and safe work out of splitting kindling!"
 
- Tim, Minnesota

Quality, Premium Build

The Kindling Cracker is made in an Australian foundry. It consists of one solid piece of high-quality cast iron, so it's something that your grandkids' grandkids will use to split their own kindling, if cared for and used correctly. The only maintenance it needs is a bit brushing off and maybe a touch of paint from time to time to look like new for generations.

"You must buy one of these! It makes the production of kindling safe, fast and fun. I wish I had this 30 years ago."
 
- Herman, New Jersey

Safe and Easy to Use

Safe and Easy to Use

The Kindling Cracker is a top-grade cast iron splitting head mounted inside of a 12in.H cast iron frame. To make a perfect piece of kindling, place a piece of firewood inside the iron safety ring and strike with a blunt instrument, such as a hammer, mallet or even another piece of wood. This drives the wood down onto the splitting wedge for a quick, easy split. There is no need to swing a sharp axe blade dangerously close to your hands. It's the perfect companion for your backyard stack of firewood, creating perfect kindling for your fireplace, fire pit, pizza oven, sauna, barbecue or smoker.

"I can't believe my Kindling Cracker is still in one piece! You guys must make these things out of old UFO parts."
 
- Bill, Texas
