    I bought one about 6 months ago and love it. I use a 3# hammer to whack the logs and it only takes 2 or 3 hits to split. I had one of the kinds that you step on and it was a PITA. I'm 71 years old with both hips replaced and the step-on splitter was almost dangerous for me. I sit my Kindling Kutter on a large stump piece that is about 16-18" across and 24" high. That's a comfortable way for me to use it.

    I hope you enjoy it. If I ever need another one, I will buy the same thing. The only thing that I would change is to make it a couple of inches larger, both ways.

    Good luck, Joe.
  2. Hi Joe,

    Good to hear! I just ordered one yesterday. How's it holding up; any signs of rust so far?

    The details say it's made in Australia from cast iron (not pig iron from China.)  While I plan to keep it inside out of the rain I was just curious if it might need a light coating of oil every now and than like a cast iron skillet.

    Thank you,

    I keep mine in a deck box along with all of my cooking gadgets. I don't see any rust and never really thought about it. It's really heavy material and if rust is ever a factor, I'll hit it with a wire brush and a oat of black rustoleum.

    I would really that you get a pretty big chopping block. If you use it on a patio, walk or deck, I would be afraid of breaking something. It sure won't be the splitter.
