Hmm, yes. Interesting idea. Mind you, that sort of timber you could split with a flint axe no problem. There's been other weird and wonderful axes tried from time-to-time and you'd have to buy them and try for yourself to know if they are any real advantage.
I wouldn't mind testing it out to see, but not spending vast amounts of cash without first using one for an hour

Interesting setup - although that looks like the easiest wood to split that I have ever seen - he wouldn't be going that quickly on our oak logs.

Also shows how effective the old car tyre can be holding things together while you split.
