    The ingenious Stikkan® is a wall-mounted hand tool that produces kindling without hatchets, near misses or bending. Simply insert a piece of wood and lower the steel cutting wedge to produce your kindling supply. The best way to make kindling we've found yet!

    Mount Stikkan on your wood shed wall, by the fireplace or wood stove, or on the back porch. Stikkan was invented 1982 by Tormod Lie in Telemarken, Norway, and is now manufactured in Sweden. Durably crafted from cast iron with a black finish.

    • Cast iron kindling maker
    • The easy, safe and efficient way to make kindling
    • Wall-mounted design with safety lock
    • European design is durable and long-lasting
    • The original Stikkan® - accept no imitations

    For best results:
    • Mount Stikkan at the proper height: approx. 48"H at the top screw holes
    • Try softer woods like pine, spruce and birch, which work better than dense hardwoods
    • Split fresh or green wood instead of seasoned, dry wood
    • Use Stikkan for making kindling sticks, not as an axe for cutting large pieces of firewood
    • Choose wood free of knots or curves

    23"L x 3-1/4"W x 5-1/4"D

    Great for Kindling
    Comments about Product:
    This tool is nice replacement for a hatchet. (works well, and is safer)

    We have used it on pine and poplar, our most common wood for kindling. It will not split large logs, hardwood, or wood with knots. If starting out with 3-4" wide pine/poplar or similar, it works great for splitting to smaller pieces, safely to ½” (or even smaller if desired).

    One tip: if a decent tug does not split the wood, that tug should have "set" the blade into the end-grain, simply lift handle an inch or two (the wood rises with the blade), then swing down quickly. This method requires less force than trying to pull down slowly.

    We find the Stikkan to be a useful tool, and it is built sturdy. It will remain hanging in our woodshed for years to come.

    Tough to split hardwood
    Comments about Product:
    Had high expectations for this product, especially for the price. I watched the video, and followed the mounting instructions provided.

    We primarily cut hardwood (beech and maple). I chose short, very dry pieces (the instructions recommend using 10-12" in length). I have difficulty splitting wood using this product. I have to practically hang on the thing in order to split.

    However, I have no problem splitting pine with this product. This thing just might not be meant for dense hardwoods. They must only use pine in Sweden!

    Very Disappointed
    Comments about Product:
    my carpenter and contractor installed the Stikkan next to my wood pile, took a piece of your average piece of firewood and after several attempts, with different
    size pieces, finally was able to split one (this was a
    piece that had previously been split).
    He/they (each one tried it, as did i) had to hold the wood with one hand, while attempting to engage the lever with the other. It doesn't "bite" into the wood immediately, so you're holding it rather precariously, as you try to jam the blade into the wood. Too risky, not worth hurting myself and quite frankly it's not as easy as they make it look. I wound up returning them
    (i'd bought two).

    "Effortless"??? Who thought that slogan up?
    Comments about Product:
    Well, while this is an interesting concept, I would by no means characterize the process as "effortless," and I'm sad to say I bear no resemblance to those winsome Scandinavian lasses who seem to be able to slice through their woodpile like butter. While I have managed over the course of an afternoon to amass an untidy half pile of kindling out of nine potential logs, 90% of my efforts have been met with frustration. First and foremost, the blade frequently REFUSES to penetrate the top surface of the log more than a quarter if an inch, no matter what angle, level or configuration I attempt, or how much pressure I apply. Maybe my logs are too hard, but I have a good selection of different woods, all well seasoned, and none seem particularly amenable to that blade. When a piece does split off, a knot or curve in the grain will instantly abort the cut, leaving one to extricate the half split section from the blade. I hated using my former "gimmick," a manual log splitter tool with a long handle down which you slammed a heavy sleeve, but it worked a hell if a lot better on the same woods than this thing does. I may have to go back to it. :-(

    I am gong to persevere, though, and try to figure this thing out, and have my husband make a video of my efforts, which I will put up on YouTube alongside the official Stikkan commercial, for comic relief if nothing else. Caveat emptor.
