Council Tool

The company is as much about people as it is about tools. After all, it’s people who design the tools and manufacture and market them. The employees at Council Tool are hard-working Americans who take great pride in their work.

Splitting Mauls

Council Tool offers the country’s premier line of heavy-duty, American-made tools for forestry applications and for fighting wildfires. We also serve industries ranging from law enforcement to landscaping—any industry that requires heavy-duty hand tools.

A typical wood Splitting Maul has a head weight of 6 to 8 lb. The original maul resembles an axe but with a broader head. The weight of it is more advantageous and due to its width, it is less likely to become stuck in the wood. Wood splitting mauls are designed to cut and hit wood, split staves, logs and other wood items. It is much more comfortable while splitting wood than a typical axe. To extend its durability never use it to strike concrete, metal or equally hard materials and it will serve you a long life.

High Quality

To maintain complete quality control, we produce all of our products at our North Carolina headquarters. We sink, repair and maintain our own forging dies and components in our own die shop. No tool leaves our plant without passing our rigid quality inspection process.

Innovation And Progress

When you can get high quality and innovative design at a fair price, that’s where value comes in. You simply get more for your money with Council professional tools.

Honesty

Honesty goes without saying at Council Tool. It’s what has made us a trusted source for more than 120 years.

American-Made

We are committed to keeping jobs here in the United States. We are committed to protecting the environment. So, we would never use offshore labor from places where environmental regulations are soft.

Made In The USA

This phrase is a particularly meaningful. We use only American steel, American hickory and domestic material and supplies.

Anyone who''s used an American style splitting maul will find this Council Tools maul familiar. It''s a decent product that''s made in the US out of okay materials and sold at a reasonable price. Here''s what I don''t like about it:

-The handle on the one I received is pretty bad. The grain orientation is somewhere between 50 and 70 degrees. The website claims it''s American Hickory but I found the wood to be soft when I was removing the lacquer - I had a lot of tear-out using a spoke shave at the minimum depth setting. My handle was absolutely caked in clear lacquer... it was more than I''ve ever seen on a wood handled tool.
- The eye of the maul is pretty small and the handle is actually "necked down" to accommodate it (see pictures). I plan on adding a metal overstrike collar to help protect this area, but this design seems pretty weak. The fit around my maul''s eye is not great (again see pictures). It looks like there''s some kind of glue or epoxy helping to hold the head onto the handle - this could also be excess lacquer, I''m not sure.
-There was absolutely no sharpness to the maul out of the box... not even grind marks. The manufacturer pounded or maybe just cast the head into a rough point, but nothing beyond that.

Overall, I would recommend this product if you can find one that you can physically inspect before purchasing, but I would not recommend buying one sight unseen from an online retailer. This could have easily been a 4 or 5 star product if Council Tools would have spent a little more time on QA. Unfortunately, this tool is about the same quality as those being produced in China.

I bought this because the wood handle will absorb shock and is replaceable and because it''s made in the U.S. The head wasn''t symmetric and the handle grain was perpendicular to the edge. This is considered wrong by lots of axeperts but the one I have hasn''t been a problem, probably because there isn''t any grain run out. I like to wrap the handle near the head with wood glue-soaked twine for reinforcement. Ultimately, this is a wedge on a stick for smashing apart wood. The poll has held up to driving wedges well. So far,so good. This tool requires some strength to wield effectively and there''s definitely a skill curve. I split several cords with it this year. We''ll see how it fares in the next decade or so.

Update: season 2 splitting with the tool is underway. I reproduced the edge so that there''s less of a secondary edge bevel and it splits much better. Handle still going strong, even though the axeperts say it shouldn''t have survived.

Update 3. We''re heating with wood this time of year again. After several more cords of ash, mulberry, locusts, and pin oak this tool is still my preferred one. I''ve started to attack smaller pieces with a vintage double bit but this sees more use. Still great. I scraped off the varnish and put a linseed oil finish on it this year.

Update 4. Still happy. Split more wood this year.

Both the head and the handle are good quality. The wedge side was symmetrical and had a slight edge, and with a plastic slip cover protecting the edge. I spent less than a minute with a file cleaning up the edge. The handle grain was parallel to the striking edge, as it should be. It was lightly coated, not a heavy varnish or poly coating, easily sanded if so desired. The stickers were applied a bit haphazardly but peeled off easily. I''m glad Council Tool puts effort into making quality tool and doesn''t worry about how the stickers look. For under $40, I think this maul is a really good value.

Bought this to replace my cheap fiberglass handle Harbor Freight maul even though it was still in one piece. Wanted American made. This one broke the second day. Insert into the maul head is 1 X 1 3/8 which I think is a little flimsy for a wooden handle. Admittedly, it broke because of a few overstrikes on my part but expected better. Now going with a Fiskar with a composite handle. Would suggest staying away from wooden handle version, unless you are really, really accurate on each swing.

This is my fourth purchase of a Council Tool product. It is a game-changer when compared to trying to split 20” lengths of hardwood with a regular felling or splitting axe.

Handle split after 50 swings. Not clear who to contact? I will gladly purchase a new handle as this tool is useless at the moment. And no I didn’t swing it and hit the handle.

If you use a tool like this for it''s intended purpose, and you do it frequently, you''ll either learn to love the tool you use often (out of habit) or you''ll find features you like and pursue them. This is an 8# maul, or splitter (not exactly), there are not too many features to seek. Steel, finish, handle ergononics...that''s about it. The steel is good, finish is plain, handle is straight stick throughout...

Why I bought this one...Council Tool. This is made in the USA, this company makes my Velvicut (America''s and, arguably the world''s finest felling axe), and it makes the fire axes and Halligans I use to to do my job. Brand loyal.

Notable features: sledge eye, grain is right, price is right. If you like computer rendered ergonomic fiberglass handle, this is not that. If you know how to swing a maul, this one works fine.
