The young inventor
Ayla Hutchinson was only 13 years old when she invented the Kindling Cracker™. She came up with the idea after her mother cut her finger badly while splitting wood with an axe and Ayla became determined to find a safer alternative.
The main difference is the size. The King model is almost twice as big as the Kindling Cracker Original 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, the Kindling Cracker King will get the job done!
Kindling Cracker Original allows you to split firewood with a diameter of approximately 16 cm. Kindling Cracker King allows you to split firewood with a diameter of approximately 23 cm.
The unique design of the Kindling Cracker means the blade does not need to be razor sharp. You can lay it flat and sharpen it with a metal file if you would like your blade sharper.
The Kindling Cracker is made from top-grade cast iron and manufactured in a foundry in Australia. The Kindling Cracker has been created to offer maximum longevity and should last for generations if cared for and used correctly.
This is an optional extra, but we recommend that you buy one of our Kindling Cracker Bundles where a high-quality, german made hammer is included. Our hammer is specially designed to use with the Kindling Cracker.
