I was at Cabela's today and picked up a Gerber Splitting Axe II (http://www.cabelas.c...an-axes-4.shtml). It's made by Fiskars, so I'm sure it's eqivalent to a Fiskars-labeled item. Overall length is 28.5", weighs almost 5.5 lbs.
I got home and had just enough light left outside to try it out. I LIKE IT!!!!! It does a nice job of splitting, with reduced effort! This is going to be a tool I'll keep for the rest of my life! For it's size and weight, it does a great job.
