Splitting kindling

Splitting kindling is a useful technique when you’re finding if difficult to source dry materials to light your fire.  Whilst there are different ways to split kindling, in this video I show one of my favourite methods, using a ‘support stick’ to hold the wood still so that I can use my axe with one hand to split.

We teach splitting kindling, and much more, on our Axe Workshop.

You can see photos from this and all of our other courses on our Facebook page.
