Product Description

This Traditional Mini Spalter delivers surprising power. It is a compact, highly capable German style splitting axe, designed primarily for lighter splitting work. The dual wedge head design delivers highly effective strikes that increase splitting efficiency and prevent the head from becoming stuck or pinched in logs. The Mini Spalter's 2.25 pound head and short 20" handle are perfect for small firewood, camping, and stocking wood stoves. For a small campfire, or the occasional evening in the living room, this axe is perfectly sized to handle the job.

Each piece is handcrafted by Helko’s Master Smiths, lifelong artisans of metalcraft. The Smith uses tongs on an open face drop forge to shape the head, a skill requiring impressive control and hand-eye coordination that can only be achieved through years of practice. Once satisfied with his work, the Smith hammers the Helko Werk crown logo into the cheek. Only minimal supplementary work is performed, allowing each blade to proudly display its forging marks, and helping to ensure that no two pieces look exactly alike.
