A froe or also known as shake axe is a manual L-shaped tool used to cleave wood into thinner pieces. Typically, froes consist of a metal blade with one sharp cutting edge, and a perpendicular handle often made wood. When in use, the cutting edge is hammered into the end of the wood piece along the length of the grain, then the blade is twisted in the wood by rotating the handle. Their handed design helps significantly multiply the force applied to the handle so save time and effort to complete wood cleaving tasks. One-piece, metallic versions that lack of a handle hence requiring a separate wood piece to hammer them are also available but not common. For tasks such as splitting timber, making planks or wood shingles, the combination of a froe and a mallet in usage is preferred. Using froe is a skilled task so it should not be performed by amateurs to avoid accidents. The sharp blade of froe can be re-sharpened by a suitable sharpener for the continuous usage.
