I'm choppin' some wood, splittin' some kindlin', buildin' a fire...naw. I'm really just sitting at my keyboard eating some turkey & gravy potato chips. Yeah, I couldn't believe they were real when I saw the bag either, but they are. They're real and they are delicious. This Kindling Cracker is pretty alright too. It was designed by a teenager in New Zealand looking for a way to make splitting firewood less likely to result in split body parts.
Her method eliminates the biggest offender, the axe, from the equation altogether. The Kindling Cracker design is simple, a cast iron splitting head mounted inside a 12" cast iron frame. To split, place a piece of wood inside the iron safety ring and whack it with a blunt instrument--hammer, mallet, another piece of wood, take your pick. Kindling Crackers are all made in a New Zealand foundry. They weigh 10 pounds and stand 12" tall.
