Axes - LEVERAXE® - The Smart Axe


LEVERAXE® is based on a lever mechanism and rotational action. The axe won’t get stuck inside the wood and it’s fast to use.


LEVERAXE® will stop on top of the log. The length of the handle is longer and this provides more kinetic energy but is also an important safety feature.


LEVERAXE® is the fast, easy, safe, ecological and fun way of chopping firewood! You can start from the edges and easily chop away the easiest pieces first.

The inventor of the Leveraxe - the smart axe
20 years ago Heikki Kärnä moved to deep forest of Sipoo in Finland. He started cutting down trees and clearing the rocky site to build a home for his wife and him, to enjoy their retirement. Very soon he got frustrated on traditional axes, because they were too dangerous and hard to work with. The axe struck him more than once. He had to swing the axe high over his head to build up enough speed to split those fresh logs and eventually this activity started to give him back pain.

He started thinking - "How to make a better axe?"

Years went by and one day the man was levering yard stones with a crowbar. And then, out of the blue, it struck him. He could barely restrain himself - he finally knew the answer to the problem. He was sure that crowbar's prying power over big rocks and stumps could also be applied to an axe. He threw the crowbar in the bushes, ran to the kitchen table and sketched his new, lever-based axe.

Leveraxe - faster than hydraulic splitter.
Prototype by prototype Heikki developed new features to make his invention safer and more effective. Finally he got to this combination of beautiful design and incomparable functionality.

And thus LEVERAXE was born.
