Splitting Froe, Medium Size, Logs Splitting, Hand Power Tool, Handmade Tool, Shake Axe, Paling Knife
Froe is a tool for cleaving wood by splitting it along the grain. Used by hammering one edge of its blade into the end of a piece of wood in the direction of the grain, then twisting the blade in the wood by rotating the haft. Froes are used in combination with wooden mallets to split timber, to make planks, wooden shingles, or kindling; they are safer and more accurate to use than hatchets or splitting mauls because the blade is not swung.
