Which wood is good for making kindling?

Soft wood like spruce and pine are perfect since they split so easily and burns good which you want for igniting your logs in the fire. So use soft wood for kindling and hard wood for logs.

User Guide

Stikkan should be mounted on a stabel wall, not plaster board, vertical, approx 120 cm from floor to the higher screwholes.

With the elegant design it fits well into most environments, by the fireplace, the cast iron stove or in the woodshed. Stikkan is zinc electroplated which makes it ideal to have even outside.

Stikkan minimizes the risk of injury in making kindlings.

Place Stikkan out of reach of small children. The wood log will never be stuck due to Stikkan's construction. If the log is not split totally in the first movement simply lift the log to a higher step and repeat.
