Kids are log-splitting maniacs!
I bought an awesome wood splitting tool called the “Kindling Cracker” last year designed, manufactured and marketed by a 13 yr old girl named Ayla.
“When Ayla Hutchinson was 13 years old, she saw her mother cut her finger with a hatchet while splitting kindling and became determined to find a safer way to cut firewood. This Mighty Girl from Taranaki, New Zealand took on that challenge as a science fair project – the result was the Kindling Cracker, a cast iron tool that allows people to split kindling quickly and safely. Now, the 15-year-old entrepreneur is not only doing brisk business in her home country, she’s bringing her invention to a major new market after she recently signed a distribution deal with a leading American tool company, Northern Tools and Equipment!” -Facebook
I use her Kindling Kracker all the time because it works like a charm. Kindling from logs in minutes with little effort and no fear of losing a finger or knee cap. Soon to be an heirloom tool.
@L0ki just saw you beat me to it. Kudos!
