The BlueSpot 1kg (2.2lb) Fibreglass Splitting Head Hand Axe features a contoured handle for a more secure grip. The fibreglass shaft reduces fatigue and increases shock absorption during prolonged use. The axe is light enough for single-handed use. The head is manufactured from hardened steel which has been ground and powder coated to protect from rust. The wedge shape of the head is ideal for splitting wood.
