After 30 years of heating with wood, I now live in a home in which I can no longer burn wood. So I am selling my well used splitting maul, a vintage all-steel 15lb Sotz Monster maul.

These mauls are virtually industructible and are the most effective splitting maul ever built. They will even split troublesome species like Elm (although not in just one swing as is the case most often in easier to split types of wood). The triangular head virtually eliminates the maul getting stuck in the wood.

As you can see from the pictures, it is well used. The handle now even has a slight curvature of the handle (the result bad aim a few times over the many cords of wood split over the years). But the maul is sturdy as ever.

Yes it is heavy, but I found I quickly got used to the heft of the thing, I used that weight to my advantage. Where one really puts the effort into swinging the maul is on the down swing, all you have to do is help gravity do its job.

Call, text, or email James. The price is $60.
