Ideal for splitting small logs and kindling, the Fiskars Pro IsoCore 2.5 lb. axe helps you take on tough jobs while reducing muscle fatigue and joint pain. The patented, industry-leading IsoCore Shock Control System reduces punishment on your body by absorbing up to 2X the strike shock and vibration of wood handles. A dual-layer handle captures any lingering vibration. It is equipped with a forged, heat-treated steel head with a rust-resistant coating.
