This is the Stikkan Norwegian Kindling Splitter, it’s a tool designed for safely slicing kindling off of larger branches – without putting your fingers in harm’s way.

The Norwegian Kindling Splitter is a traditional Nordic tool that was developed to make the process of cutting kindling far easier and safer. It perhaps makes a lot of sense that it was developed in Scandinavia, a region famous for its long winters and polar temperatures.

It works by using a hinged steel blade to cut down through the wood, there are a series of ascending steps on the side that allow you to position the wood correctly and to then move it up as it’s cut. You can use it using just your hand on the handle – without needing to have your hand up near the blade.

Each one is made in Sweden from cast iron, and they call come with a 10 year warranty. When it arrives you install it by mounting it on a wall or pillar, preferably close to where you store your firewood.
