Leveraxe Or How To Chop Wood Easier And Quicker
Choping wood is not an easy task. You need to be strong and master the technique to be able to do a good job. As for the axe, not much happened to improve it over the past few hundreds of years, so chopping wood in the 21st century it’s pretty much the same as people were doing it back in the 16th century!

That was until now! Thank to Finish inventor Heikki Kärnä the good, ol’ wood chopping axe finally passed into the 21st century! The LeverAxe exploits physics findings to make chopping easier and more efficient. While a classic axe has a centered gravity center and works by passing momentum to split the wood log, the LeverAxe has a side positioned gravity center which allows it to act more as a lever to split wood. When the LeverAxe hits the log, the kinetic energy given by the side-positioned gravity center as well as the curved shape of the cutting edge force the axe head to split apart the wood logs. Check out the video and let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
