Because of its twisted shape, the wedge angle enlarges while the wedge is being knocked in. This results in higher splitting forces. The tip is easily applied to the wood and forces itself in. Grooves on the side of the wedge bite into the wood and therefore prevent the wedge from recoiling.
In former times axes were used to cut down trees, but nowadays these have been replaced by chain saws. This rapid development also affected splitting wedges. The oldest models, usually made of wood, have been replaced by low-wear splitting wedges made of steel. Now engineering has taken another step: Safety splitting wedges are made of extremely impact-resistant, forged aluminium. They do not splinter and are no risk for chain saws. At the same time they are very light and protected against corrosion.
