Kindling Cracker - Safer, Faster, and Easier Way to Split Firewood

Kindling Cracker - Safer, Faster, and Easier Way to Split Firewood

This winter, if you'll be chopping up firewood to create your own kindling for a hearth, smoker, or fire pit, put down that sharp axe or hatchet and split the wood in a much safer, faster, and easier way using this cool new Kindling Cracker. Invented in New Zealand by 13 year old student Ayla Hutchinson for a science project, this handy cast iron tool can split a piece of firewood simply with a few strikes from a hammer, mallet, or even another log - no sharp blade will ever pass by your fingers. To use, just place a piece of wood in the iron safety ring resting atop the splitting head and strike it down with a blunt instrument of your choice to split it in half with ease. It's highly portable should you need to move it or bring it along to a campsite or it can even be bolted down to a tree stump for permanent mounting. Check out the demo below to see it in action. Cool huh?
