    Comments about Estwing® Sure-Spit Wedge (E-5):

    I bought two types of wedges, one of Sure-Spit Wedges and another cheaper stock black wedge. Use both to split large logs. Ended up buying a second Sure-Spit Wedge because the other stock black wedge, could not even get it started. The Sure-Spit Wedge, i'd rename to sure start. So easy to get going and effective and efficient in splitting.

      Comments about Estwing® Sure-Spit Wedge (E-5):

      We lost our old spitting wedge. For many years we used axe heads. After splitting a lot of wood, I decided to get another splitting wedge. First I bought a large splitting wedge and a smaller splitting wedge, they had the old proven design and were at a much lower price, then I took a second look at this expensive wedge. I was skeptical of the new design. I already have two good splitting wedges, that I haven't even used yet. I came back another day and bought it. I just had two try this new design. I welcome any improvement, that will make my job easier. I went home and put this new wedge to work splitting oak. It is the best splitting wedge, that I have used and it will be my main splitting wedge, for as long as I can remember where it is.

        Comments about Estwing® Sure-Spit Wedge (E-5):

        The extra side wedges on this make it the fastest wedge I've used - use fewer hits to split. However, it mushrooms down to where the side wedges start fairly quickly. I'd like to see it made of harder material. The good design which saves me a lot of work overcomes this one shortcoming. It is the only wedge I buy.

        Works Good Some Improvements Needed

        • Cost good
        • Good Value


        • Low Quality

        Comments about Estwing® Sure-Spit Wedge (E-5):

        The narrow wedge gets into lot and crack started for the wings to blow open

        Onece it hits the wings it blows the round wide open and so wide you can keep hammering on it if its still bien hard to finish full split

        It does need some serrations up in the area where it transitioning from pure wedge to he fins/wings as it wants to bounce out if the split is still resisting

        The material needs to be a bit harder as it take a dent, and its rolling over a bit, I can see that to keep from messing up the maul head, but its just a bit too soft.

        Appears to be good ...

        By Art T

        from Lowell, MA

        Comments about Estwing® Sure-Spit Wedge (E-5):

        Appears to be good quality, but does not work significantly better than a normal wedge until driven most of the way into the round. Note that item is not conical the way it looks in the picture, rather it is basically a standard wedge with two "wings sticking out near the top. I will probably grab it before my other wedges, but am not that impressed.
