Who doesn’t love a roaring fire? Real fires keep your home cosy, bring a joy to Summer BBQs and turn camping into a magical experience.

With a Kindling Cracker, you can split firewood quickly, easily and with all your fingers intact.
Get to know Kindling Cracker
If you are a fan of a real fire then you need to add a Kindling Cracker to your kit.
The Kindling Cracker has an unusual backstory too. It was invented by 13-year old Ayla from New Zealand.
She got the idea after her mother chopped her finger badly while she split firewood with an axe and Ayla was determined to find a safer alternative.
Kindling Cracker is now an award-winning success story and even the New Zealand Post company has issued a stamp to pay tribute to Ayla and her ingenious invention. Isn’t it interesting that it has taken almost 5000 years before a young girl from New Zealand realises that you can turn the axe upside down and create a safe firewood splitter that everyone can use, both young and old?
Fandango Fire Tools is the European distributor for the Kindling Cracker. They supply everyone, from small individual stores to large chains all over Europe. Their warehouses are located in Gothenburg, Sweden and in Manchester, UK.
5 THINGS YOU Need TO KNOW ABOUT The Kindling Cracker
1.What’s the difference between the Kindling Cracker Original and Kindling Cracker King?
The main difference is the size. The King model is almost twice as big as the Kindling Cracker Original (£119) and allows you to split both taller and wider firewood. If you normally buy already split firewood and only want to make kindling, the Kindling Cracker Original is perfect for you!
If you however have medium to large firewood or a lot of different sizes, the Kindling Cracker King (£179) will get the job done.
Depending on what your plan to chop – and where you want to use it will impact which size you buy. But to give you an idea, the Kindling Cracker Original allows you to split firewood with a diameter of approximately 16 cm, while the Kindling Cracker King allows you to split firewood with a diameter around 22 cm.
2. Will it need sharpening?
The unique design of the Kindling Cracker means the blade does not need to be razor sharp for it to do the job. So you won’t need to sharpen it each and every time you use it. But if you do decide to sharpen the blade, then simply lay it flat and use a metal file. The Kindling Crackers is built to last and stand the test of time if cared for and used correctly.
As an optional extra you can treat yourself to a bundle where a hammer (1.5 kg) is included. The hammer has been specially designed for use with the Kindling Cracker.
3. It’s an eco-friendly wood chopper
The Kindling Cracker is made from top-grade recycled cast iron and manufactured in a foundry in Australia. And for peace of mind, the wood chopper comes with a 5 year warranty and 30-day free return.
- The chopper is made from 86% scrap metal that is carefully mixed and monitored for best quality. Most of the scrap metal comes from end of life cars and building demolition materials.
