Buying a splitting maul or splitting axe? Learn from someone who made a mistake.

One terrible splitting maul and one great one. The first literally bounces of most logs. The second cuts beautifully.

The first is a Faithfull (unfaithful) something or other which I promptly returned. It was like hitting a log with a sledge hammer.  The second is a Draper Expert and makes splitting a pleasure.
