SIMPLEX splitting axe
thin shape, with cast iron housing and hickory handle

EH 3008.

Combining two tools into one, a splitting axe and a soft-face mallet of the highest professional quality, Halder's SIMPLEX splitting axes offer a significant savings in cost compared to the individual purchases of the tools. The top-tier quality of the product has been confirmed by the committee for forestry work and forestry technology (KWF). The total weight is 2,700g.

The drop-forged and hardened axe blade is ground and polished. Its slender shape makes it ideal for splitting coniferous wood.

The hard nylon insert with D50mm and made of polyamide offers outstanding impact qualities and is guaranteed to combine maximum strength with unique durability. It is composed of extruded and extremely homogeneous material. Compared to injection moulded plastic inserts, it is therefore considerably more wear-resistant and durable and will never chip even in sub-zero temperatures. Using the soft side when wedging the wood open entirely eliminates the risk of injury from metal splinters. What is more, the service life of plastic and aluminium wedges is extended substantially.

Made of cast iron, the housing comes with an integrated handle protection sleeve that provides for a high level of break resistance.

The long-fibre and ultra durable hickory handle is varnished and shaped ergonomically. 

The leather cutting protection prevents injury during transport.

In line with the smart SIMPLEX principle, all components are replaceable and can be retrofitted. This translates to savings in both money and resources.

  • 2 tools in 1: Splitting axe plus soft-face mallet, considerably less costly than buying the tools individually.
