Bamboo hand splitters are back in stock.
The 215 mm diameter splitting tool is capable of splitting any lengths from poles in the range of 25mm up 160mm diameter.
To produce the widths of splits required, there is a selection of either 4 – 5 – & 6 bladed splitters available.
The width of the split strip will depend on the diameter of the selected pole and the number of blades in the splitter.
The splitters are not designed to be walloped with a hammer, simply align & gentry tap to get the split started. Once started bounce to pole up & down where gravity will do the splitting or pull the handles downwards. For long lengths, mount the splitter in a solid frame and hammer/push/drive the pole through hotizontally.
Be aware that the emerging splits can be as sharp as a razor. We wrap a strong cloth over the splits or use leather gloves for protection.
