Split wood like never before with the Chopper1 Axe. Don’t let its Frankenstein looks deter you. This axe is an efficient machine when it comes to chopping wood. The secret lies in a set of rotating levers found on each side of the axe’s head. As the axe blade enters the wood surface, the levers immediately swing out, pushing and splitting the wood apart. It’s like the log explodes from the inside. Regardless if the wood is bone dry, freshly cut, damp or full of knots, nothing will stop this axe. The design also makes it literally impossible to wedge the axe. Due to the redirection of downforce, you’ll end up getting a ton more exercise as each side of the log gets launched feet from your chopping position. Made in the USA, the Chopper 1 was originally developed in 1977, but after two decades of success, the Chopper1 almost fell into extinction until a recent resurgence in the outdoor market.
