What is the Difference Between A Felling Axe and a Splitting Axe?
Felling axes need to be strong and sharp in order to cut across the grain of wood, for example in order to fell a tree, you have to chop against the grains. These fibers are tough and need the sharp bit of the felling axe.
Splitting Axes are used to split wood that has already been felled. This means that splitting axes are more wedge-shaped so that they can rip the wood apart by splitting with the grain of the wood, instead of cutting through or against the grain. This means that a splitting axe does not need to be as sharp, because it isn’t going against the fibers, it’s going with the grain.
