Chopping wood just made a step forward, thanks to the Vipukirves (Finnish for Leveraxe). If you've ever had to hack your way through a cord or two of wood to heat your home, cabin or even for a campfire, you should think about investing in this new design that will make the chore faster and easier. Its all about the center of gravity, and leverage.

It’ll set you back $215 for the Vipukirves and another $65 to get it shipped from Finland, but if you've got to get your supply laid in and don’t have a splitter, this makes a great way to go. Check out the video for yourself.
