Description

This is a blackpowder blasting/splitting wedge. I have never used one of these or seen one in action, but it is my understanding that you pour blackpowder in one end of the wedge, put some wadding in to plug the hole in the wedge end, drive it into the end of your log, put in a piece of cannon fuse, light it and get out of the way. They tell me it will split a log completely in half. Sounds like a good time, huh? It is approx. 12" long x 1 3/4 " in dia. and seems to me to be in pretty good condition, but I'm no expert, so if you intend to use it, your at your own risk, I don't know if its safe or not. It has some mushrooming on the driving end, but it seems to be solid. It is offered as a curio only and not recommended for uses.
