Swinging an axe doesn’t come without its dangers. If you’ve got a big pile of firewood to get through, you might be contemplating the task of cutting the logs to size with a weary eye. Well, a 13 year old girl from New Zealand decided to tackle the issue, and her solution turned the problem on its head: rather than swing a blade at the wood, why not much the wood against a blade? The Kindling Cracker is a solid cast iron contraption that accepts logs up to 6.5 inches across and features an upward facing blade. You simply insert your log and tap it with a mallet or even another log. It’s safe because you’re not swinging any blade through the air, and it’s solidly constructed so it’ll last for years. It’s $85.
