Introducing Ayla

The Young Inventor

Ayla Hutchinson was only 13 years old when she invented the Kindling Cracker™. Ayla's mother injured her finger while splitting wood with an axe. Ayla became determined to find a safer alternative.


The main difference is size. The King model is almost twice the size of the Original and allows you to split taller and wider firewood. If you buy already split firewood and want to make kindling go for the Kindling Cracker Original! If you have medium to large firewood, the Kindling Cracker King will get the job done!

You can split wood with a diameter of up to 16cm with the Kindling Cracker Original. With the King model you can split wood up to 22.5cm. 

In a word, no. The unique wedge design of the Kindling Cracker means the blade does not need to be razor sharp to work well.

It is easy to sharpen the blade if you want to and some owners decide to do that from time to time. Lay your Kindling Cracker flat and give it a few strokes with a metal file and it's as good as new!

Yes. The patent was filed in 2013 and granted in 2022. The patent covers 38 European countries including the UK.

The scope of the patent is extensive. The key elements are the upward facing blade (and even multiple blades) beneath a safety ring/guard in all shapes and sizes. Any imitation featuring these elements is an illegal copy.

The validated patents serve to protect Ayla's remarkable invention. 

There are also granted patents in the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, China and Japan.

Yes! Any variety of wood that you can split with an axe can be safely split with a Kindling Cracker with ease. Oak, birch and ash are no problem at all.
