The Vipukirves axe separates sections from the log using a unique lever action that allows logs to be split into firewood in seconds. The splitting force of Vipukirves is considerably stronger than with a traditional axe.
Vipukirves has an unique design. Upon striking the log, it automatically turns to the right and detaches the chopped portion from the log. Vipukirves functions like a convention axe with the exception that the user must loosen his/her the grip on the handle when the blade strikes the log. Chopped sections are removed with a single strike and the blade doesn't become lodged in the log, but keeps it in the same place and ready for the next strike.
