This wedge is also often referred to as a driving wedge. Large pieces of wood and whole tree trunks can be cut very well and spanfrei. That’s why he loves to be used in forestry.

Most riving knives are made of steel. In recent times, however, they are made of aluminum alloys and plastic,
the narrower the cutting edge, the better it can penetrate the log or large pieces of wood, sharp and fast.
Splitting wedges are available in many different designs and sizes.
The wedge surfaces are designed differently. They can be equipped with flat grooves, webs or webs, these notches improve the guidance in the wood and reduce friction at the same time.
On the one hand, there are these riving knives for wood. On the other hand, but also for the breaking of stones.
They are today in quarries, in the geology and excavations from the Stone Age, when fossils are excavated.
A stonemason no longer uses these razor wedges as often. They differ to the riving knives for wood in that they
Have steel alloys.

Overview of different riving knives

A wood splitter wedge of the special kind is the Fiskars rotary splitting wedge (forged) in the color orange.
It is available in lengths of 22 cm or 24 cm. The wedge has a rounded head. This material damage during chipping are largely avoided. It consists of hardened steel and with a weight of 2.2 kg can be used successfully everywhere. It is also advantageous that this riving knife has a steel strap for hanging on hooks. As a result, „he is not just lying around“ on workbenches. Clearly hung on the hook, it is always easily found before any work.
It is the ideal split wedge for every wood, even for very dry and fallen logs. For this Fiskas splitter, no wood is too old or dry, he „manages them all“. Due to the torsion of this wedge is a strong advantage, because its cutting edge is rotated by 90 degrees.

The foundational rotary splitting wedge with a weight of 2 kg is very well suited to split firewood. The notches prevent springing back when the wedge penetrates the wood. This riving knife is excellent to use wood, which may already be slightly frozen or very strong in diameter. His playing surface is particularly large and very effective by the spin function in the split. The effort does not have to be very high, which makes the joints and muscles properly toned, despite the otherwise strenuous work. Even logs with a diameter of 50 cm are no obstacle.
No such „stubborn“ strain can do this riving knife withstand.

Ochsenkopf OX 34-0400 1592076 Felling wedge made of plastic has a weight of 400 gr.
He is very well used even in extreme cold. Especially with already iced wood. Please note, this one riving knife is only suitable for felling wood and unfortunately not for splitting. It’s not a problem, though chainsawand Keil meet each other, because this wedge is made of plastic. This protects the chainsaw. Here you can say „small but nice“.
