Helko Werk Twisted Steel Splitting Wedge
The Helko Werk twisted steel splitting wedge is handmade and has a wide striking face that is ideal for hammering. Each is forged from German C50 high-grade carbon steel, with a perfect hardness level – hard enough to prevent mushrooming but forgiving enough to avoid the possibility of chipping or cracking. Sharp debris from chipping is a serious concern when using wedges, which is why it is important to only use wedges designed to avoid these hazards. Helko’s twisted steel wedges are drop forged, heat-treated, and oil-hardened. While lower quality splitting wedges will break down over time and need to be replaced, Helko wedges should easily last a lifetime.

Purchased this axe as I like products of a high standard and that's exactly what this item is. Have given it a lot of use and the blade edge stays keen for a long time
This splitting axe makes quick work of the iron bark we have.
Its also a nice looking piece of kit!
