Item Description

These are made from freshly cut dogwood trunks in January so the sap is at it's lowest to have the littlest chance of the wood checking.
The wedge shape is axed by hand to a chisel edge approximately 1/16 of an inch or less.
Length is near 12 inches. The width of the wedge face is approximately 3 inches.
The faces of the wedges and the striking heads have been sealed with two coats of polyurethane. The head surface area is approximately 2 1/4" X 2 1/2".
The striking head area has been fluted to prevent mushrooming of the head.
Bark is on and seasoning therefore is slow. Stored indoors.

These are hardwood wedges that will last a long time.

Flowering dogwood is one of the hardest hardwoods available in the U.S.A., even harder than osage orange, ohia, hornbeam and locust varieties. Persimmon and screwbean mesquite are the two domestics that are harder - and only slightly so.
There is an extensive history of dogwood being used for wedges ( hardwood gluts ) and mauls for splitting wood. On the Janka hardness scale it comes in a whopping 2150. It does not appear on many Janka hardness charts because dogwood does not usually attain a size large enough to yield 'lumber' as many other wood varieties do so therefore it is not listed with the 'lumber' wood.
