Kindling cracker

Recommended Posts

  • Moderators

Last season, when Northern Tool had a sale, Paul bought this nifty device for splitting logs.

We spend a lot of time camped on our property in North Carolina, and cook a lot over the fire. We bought the biggest Kindling cracker, but a smaller version could actually be carried,  but probably most practical for those of us who stay in one spot for a lengthy period of time.

Safer than our traditional splitting with an axe, and definitely easier for me to use to split pieces further into tinder. With a few swings of a 4 pound hammer,  kindling becomes tinder to start a fire in a very damp pit. (We've had a lot of soaking rain the last few days.) 

Made in Australia,  naturally.

I see they're on sale again at northern tool!

I love this thing. 

Campfire, building a coal bed for flank steak, sweet potatoes, and asparagus tonight. Paul and our friend deserve a good meal, after today's hard work. A huge American beech was uprooted over the winter, falling across one of our many trails. 

Husqvarna rancher chainsaw to the rescue.
