Kindling Cracker - The Original Description

The Kindling Cracker™ is a wood splitter almost anyone can use, the clever design is basically an upturned axe that the wood is placed onto, and then once struck with a mallet or even just another piece of wood, the larger log will split down into smaller chunks. Ideal for homes with wood burners, fireplaces, fire pits, or wood fired saunas.

  • Built to last for generations
  • Made from one piece of high quality cast iron
  • Safe and easy to use
  • Bolt holes allow permanent mounting
  • Wood will split with much less force than using an axe.

It would make an excellent gift for anyone who spends time chopping wood, The Kindling Cracker™ , is not only a good quality and long lasting gift that looks really handsome, but it will also make their lives easier, and keep them safe!

Beware of cheap copies, this is the original Kindling Cracker ™ that was invented by a thirteen year old girl from New Zealand after witnessing her mum injure her finger chopping wood. Designed in New Zealand and built in Australia.

There is also an optional cover available to protect it when not in use, or perhaps if you wanted to take it with you on camping holidays it would make the perfect carry bag.

Get one if you have a wood burning stove!

Reviewed 4 October by Suzanne

I was sceptical about this device but my goodness, it makes chopping kindling so easy, even for a clumsy fool like me. Put the log in the top, bang with a heavy sledgehammer a few times (very therapeutic) and you have a split log. Repeat for kindling. Really safe, quick and easy, and will pay for itself in the long run as I'll not be buying bags of kindling.

Christmas Present

Reviewed 24 November by J Moulder

I am hoping that this product will be as good as shown on all the videos that I have watched. I have bought it as a present for my husband to help with the many hours of log chopping!

Love it - much safer

Reviewed 4 November by Russ

I bought this for my mum who insists on cutting logs with axe and chainsaw -- this seems much safer than both and easier than swinging an axe.

It's a big heavy thing and feels very sturdy, like it will last a long time.

Mum says it works brilliantly and makes quite a bit of kindling in a very short time.

Couldn't be happier with it.
