ANyone wondering, it`s not Krn, it`s Karna, with the umlauts over the a.. IAB does not do well in these areas. No real reason for it, just laziness to not use proper coding (it takes just a hair more effort to do it right..). We can`t use symbols either that are found on each and every keyboard in the world, like euro or dollar sign etc.

Surely that twisting motion isn`t going to do your wrists any good?

I saw this the other day but just couldn`t find a vid fully explaining how it works. Looks great tho.

If it is designed to twist as it goes into the wood wouldn`t it give you blisters or sore wrists?

I would like to give this a go. I no longer have woodburners, but this is a useful bit of kit- if it works- I paid £50 for my splitting maul and that is hard work at times..
