I received my Cracker on Monday here in Germany and it was immediately taken by my mightily impressed mother-in-law for a test drive. ;) Very well done, hope I'll get it back soon for my own pleasure. ;) Daniel
Got my Kindling Cracker King in Canada love it and it's a beast. Thanks Perry
WOW!! My kindling Cracker King has arrived. Its a lot bigger than I realised but thats no problem. What a great looking piece of kit and has first edition on it. Cant wait to try it. Colin
Dear Kindling Cracker people. My sons pitched in and bought me a kindling cracker for my birthday, after I told them I would like one. I. LOVE.IT.! A couple of taps and the wood is stuck in place, ready to get hammered by the sledgehammer. One handedly. My cracker is up on a big cut round so I'm not bending over constantly to kindling up my wood. If any of the wood has knots in it, I just keep at it and it splits. Not much effort required. Thanks for being sooo smart and inventing this. Very happy customer. Suz
I bought it in Japan. Very convenient and very fun wood splitting. Mitsuhiko
I have received my Kindling Cracker (New Zealand). The quality is excellent. I've tried it out this morning and it works perfectly. I couldn't be happier. Great work Kindling Cracker Ltd. You've successfully delivered a quality product within three months of your Kickstarter Campaign funding. I couldn't be happier. Eric
My son-in-law bought one for himself, then another for a friend of his and then one for me Fantastic invention love using it. I have a feeling I will be splitting more wood then I need for next winter. Thanks again. Patrick
I can't believe my kindlingcracker is still in one piece! I've beaten the living daylights out of this thing since my wife got it for me a couple of Christmases ago. You guys must make these things out of old UFO parts. What is even more amazing is the blade is as sharp as it was the day I got it and I have put a tremendous amount of wood through it. Keep up the great work. These days, it's a privilege to come into contact with a truly superior product. Bill Grapevine, Texas
I purchased one of your smaller ones and love using it so much thank you! Kind regards Sandi
I am from Canada and I received my kindling cracker splitter just over a week ago. I have been cutting and splitting wood for over 40 years to heat my homes. I have seen many tools for splitting wood come and go. But this splitter is staying close at hand as it such a remarkable device to split wood with little effort and great safety. It is well constructed and is designed to be stable when using. I am also very pleased to purchase an item from a fellow Commonwealth country. One suggestion, it would be wise to indicate on the device the location of manufacturing. Many people grow tired of seeing "designed in a western nation", to learn that it is just another product made in China. Once again, you have a winning product. I know once Canadians learn of this product your sales will increase. Cheers David
We ordered a Cracker and Love it. Frank would hack away with an axe making kindling wood before our Cracker and now it's a breeze. Thank you so much for your excellent product! Darlene and Frank
Just wanted to let Ayla know that I purchased the Kindling Cracker and like using it very much. thanks Keep up the good work. Lou
Hey there, not an enquiry, Just a bit of feedback. I got my thingy a couple of days ago and am very impressed. It makes it so easy I've reduced half my woodheap to small sticks, as every time I walk by I have to stop and bash a couple of logs through it. I've just purchased one for my 75 year old mum too. Big ups to Ayla for being a clever person.Cheers, Bernard
Bought one of these for ourselves and was blown away with how easy and efficient it is. Have just now ordered one for our son and daughter-in-law for Christmas. Well done Ayla. Lesley
Just received the Kindling Cracker for an anniversary gift from my wife. Totally love it! Definitely one of the more manly items in my man arsenal! Steve
This is the best ever invention. I received one for a birthday present and it's brilliant! Makes making kindling so easy. Daina
Just opened my Fathers Day present "KindlingCracker" what a great idea. This is coming from an old Boy Scout whom has split many a log into kindling. Jeff
I LOVE MY KINDLING CRACKER!
Yes, I am shouting! I'm telling everyone! Thanks for creating something incredibly valuable.

Hi. I bought your Kindling Cracker today and already love it. It is a great idea and a great product. I live in Candler NC USA and it is winter and time to keep the wood stove going. Thanks Richard
Got mine for Christmas. I had given up splitting wood because of torn rotators in both shoulders. This tool makes me smile every time I use it. Easy on the shoulders and works like a charm. Thanks to my family for getting it and Ayla for inventing it. George
Proud new owner of the Kindling Cracker! So easy and effective, chopping wood is no longer a chore, love it! Andrew
Excellent trade and amazing product and packaging. Vicky
A present for my Nana. Awesome invention! Josh
Great trade, great product, thank you. Zane
Kindling cracker arrived in St. John's, NL, Canada. It's amazing! Emily
Cheers team, KC arrived today and works bloody well - until my eight... year old neice commandeered the hammer and started cranking out kindling at a high rate of knots! great wee invention!
My Kindling Cracker arrived this morning & I have used it. AWESOME !...!! Can't wait to see what other 'great inventions' you come up with. Brilliant work - keep up the fantastic work !
Great excitement here today when the KC arrived - the whole family have had a blast using it. It was for my Mum's 60th birthday and she thinks it was worth turning 60 for!
The musical sounds it makes were an unexpected bonus - quite like a wind chime!
10 days or so ago I bought a kindling cracker for our daughter & family who live on a few acres out of Melbourne.
Well, what a huge success it has been, they are absolutely thrilled with it & cannot believe how simple it is to work.
Our daughter is even allowed to cut the kindling again !!!!!, as previously she had been banned because of nearly cutting her fingers (& toes) off with the axe.
They said it worked even better than they imagined & really like the fact that the wood doesn’t fly up at your face.
A really worthwhile purchase for us, thank you.
Ann & David
We recently purchased a kindling cracker and we have nothing but admiration for your neat invention.The ordering process and delivery etc was excellent and we hope orders start coming in all over the world...you deserve success.
Well done and thank you. Jos & Tony
Best thing since I left the Boy Scouts 70 years ago!! John
Hi! What a great product - congratulations. I bought one recently for my husband and how great that I can let my children use it safely too! the product is FANTASTIC. Genevieve
Thank you so much for the prompt rural delivery of the Kindling Cracker.
Since I lost my loved husband 6 mths ago the only thing that I was concerned with was losing my fingers or cutting my hand whilst cutting kindling on my lifestyle block. Not using the chainsaw or crutching ewes etc or any maintenance. So today after it arrived whilst raining I managed a barrow load of kindling in 20mins.
Such a simple idea Ayla but what a life saver for me.
Thank you so much. Joanne.
My Kindling Cracker arrived this morning and I used it to make my first kindling at once. It's terrific! Works really well, and is safe to use. What a great invention. Very impressive. Many thanks for your ingenious and thoughtful product. Good luck and many thanks once again. Anne
I would like to start your morning with a huge high five for my new kindling cracker. Amazing and will be even better when I find a log to bolt it to. I can now imagine still cutting chips well into my golden days. Vivienne
Just got our Kindling Cracker from a friend in NZ. Best gift ever! Meredith
Thank you so much for our Kindling Cracker - our 9yr old has been spending time doing her new job of cracking chips T she may even try and sell some! Maree
Great piece of kit, hope it always stays 'made in New Zealand' Adam

We love our kindling cracker. My son loves it the most! Katie
We love our Kindling Cracker - my 10year old chops all our Kindling and infact her Uncle employs her to chop his kindling too. Safe and easy to use. Highly recommended! ! Maree
It is fantastic. No more axe injuries, no more standing outside to cut. Now my 7&5yr old cut the kindling inside with this using the rubber mallet. Unreservedly recommend it. Vicky
Absolutely ingenious - I love mine!! Thanks to Ayla and Kindling Cracker for gifting us one! Great to meet Ryan from Northern Tool & Equipment at Mystery Creek Fieldays in lil 'ol NZ !! Alison
Great and Safe tool,great for Adults and Children. Stuart
This amazing tool has take NZ by storm. Everyone with a wood fire should have one, so safe to do to most dangerous job. Even young children could do the task. The story behind it is a modern day fairy story, a fantasy come true. It took a young girl to come up with the idea, well done Ayla. Lesley
Love my kindling cracker! Highly recommend them smile emoticon. Sue
Amazing piece of kit, a must have for every home! Eddie
Love my kindling cracker. Love the safety it provides. Andrea
I'm loving mine! I can finally make my own fire and don't need to rely on hubby to cut all the kindling. It's good to see such a solid, well made tool at a reasonable price. A great Kiwi invention Jayne
We have one and we bought one for the oldies. They are awesome! Highly recommend. Jo
I bought them as Christmas presents two years ago. My 81 yr old father, & 9 yr old granddaughter love them. Last week my parents had visitors, for Fieldays, who enjoyed for using it so much Dad won't have to chop kindling for a few months. They then went to Fieldays & ordered some. Sue
The Kindling Cracker is awesome! I got my partner one at Fieldays this year and he's out there every chance chopping kindling. We've got so much kindling now... but it's chopped safely and easily smile emoticon Fantastic product, highly recommend! Rachel
Thanks for the fast hassle free trade. Excellent product. Faster than splitting with Axe and safer. AAA + + + Nathan
The Kindling Cracker is just fantastic too - we received one as a gift from my parents. I consider myself pretty strong and fit as I've spent years in a job that requires heavy lifting, but I found it hard to line up the wood and split it in the right place. It's given me so much freedom being able to quickly and easily split kindling while my husband's at work without having to leave the kids for too long. A great Christmas gift for anyone with a fireplace! Amy
My Kindling Crackers arrived yesterday, I am surprised at how quickly they made it to rural Canada. Thanks for the fast shipping. They look to be really well-made pieces of equipment, very stout, excellent weight - good, solid splitters. It is so refreshing to find a product that is both designed & built to such high quality, these days. Worth every nickel. Dan
Great trade, superfast delivery & recommend the kindling cracker, it works very well. Ron
Good fast friendly trade. Quick delivery would trade with again. Quintin
Perfect! Thanks so so much for your wonderful invention. Keri

I now have a wonderful new NZ made and designed kindling splitter- enjoying it very much.Thank you. Keep innovating! Kim
Excellent trade. Very prompt delivery and well packaged. Created a lot of interest from family members keen to try it. Many thanks for a awesome product...A++++ Elizabeth
Great trade, Dad was so pleased with it. Thank you A++++++ Tony
The Kindling Cracker arrived very promptly. After a bit of practice and experimentation I found that almost any size kindling can be made. Moving to the outer edge of the blade works well for smaller pieces as the side pressure is less as the stick goes down. If it still begins to snap prematurely you can always turn it round and finish from the other end. The KC stood up to quite a lot of punishment in the form of over-strikes with no damage. Very happy with my purchase. Well worth the price. John
Quick delivery, well packed, brilliant trade. Thank you. A++ Michael
We love the kindling cracker! Great trade, thanks. Natalie
Excellent trade thank you. Makes very easy work chopping kindling wood. Karin

Just got to a huge thanks as we bort one at the feildays and its been great as I haven't had a cut a stick of kindling since as now my 11 year old boy does it all for me and I don't have the wife saying " DON'T GET HIM TO CUT THE KINDLING AS HE WILL CUT A FINGER OFF!!!!!!, " Ha not anymore , safe as houses , every house should have one. Aaron
Great trader quick and easy A+++. Cathie
Excellent Trader. Kaye
Wow, love it.

(Ayla supporting the Taranaki Rescue Helicopter Trust with an online Auction)
I would just like to thank you so much for making such a great invention, as well as being a great looking piece of equipment the kindling cracker is just so easy to use and is perfect for making the smaller pieces of wood for my Pizza oven too, I have found we have been eating a lot of pizza over the last month! I have demonstrated it to all my friends and family and most of them have now ordered one from you.
Something you may find amusing is while my wife and I were away over the weekend , my children had a get-together and it appears everyone had a go with the kindling Cracker and to my amazement and shock they turned 90% of my year’s supply of firewood into kindling, the only bits remaining are the pieces which are basically just one big knot.
Kindling was always a problem at our house, but not any more as we now have enough Kindling for the next two years!
Thank you again for inventing such a fabulous product. Best regards Alan
Awesome thanks so much. Very prompt delivery, Fantastic invention. Tracey
I have purchased two of the crackers and they are brilliant!! Well done Ayla :)
I would like to order another one, Jim and Carolyn
I gave my 83 year old mother one recently - wow, you should see her go!! She has so much kindling now that I may end up with next year's supply already done for me. She really loves it and I am happy that she is safer than with a little ax. Lindsey
Have just been given one as an early Xmas present from my beloved! I've had a couple of turns and it is indeed a cracker!! I took the advice on the leaflet and secured it to my chopping block and that makes a huge difference. So far so good - trouble is I might end up with more kindling than blocks of wood! Great invention and worth having one. John
Brilliant! Thank you very much :) Emma
Awsome trade great product it's a winner Thanks. Andrew
I have been away on holiday took the cracker with me , you should be getting orders from my friends. It works brilliantly , I have cut all that I need and am marketing it for you down here in the deep south,by word of mouth .and giving practical demonstrations to all I meet great for my disabled friends, Just retired from my teaching job . Keep.up the great work . Jan
I've just bought one of these gadgets for Bryan - its amazing!!....if you're still chopping kindling for your fire in the winter - have a look - great xmas pressie too!! Jan
Best thing we ever did, getting this device for getting the firewood ready during winter. No more near misses and catching your fingers. Gordon
Kindling Cracker is fantastic, I now have boxes of kindling ready for next winter. So easy I have never been able to cut kindling before (sore wrists) and not enough strength. Thank you so much for your great invention. Suzanne
I am delighted with my Kindling Cracker! I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and have struggled with chopping kindling so feel it has given me back my independence.
Thank you so much
Excellent product. Well made, strong, practical, super easy to use and safe. I use a wheelchair and my arms are "stuffed" and was having real trouble slitting my kindling. Not any more. Thanks- keep the good ideas coming!
It arrived a couple of days ago and couldn't wait to try it out. Does a fantastic job, no more bruises for me. Simple design, practical and even better being invented by a girl! Well done Ayla and I wish you all the success with it.
Fantastic tool...so simple, practical and straightforward to use.... and even more impressive that it has been invented by a 13yr old girl! Prime example of "kiwi ingenuity" . I'm sure this will become a worldwide best seller. WELL DONE!
Thanks so much.....love our Kindling Cracker....
Will try and send a photo, but while not in use it is a fantastic stand for my umbrella in the corner of my lounge!!!!
Thanks again and good luck - you and your family are amazing....well done!!
Have received our new Kindling Cracker, arrived last week & I spent 15 mins espousing to my family the beauty of it, simply as an object. As a Architect myself I very much appreciate, & can almost smell the sweat & feel the anxiety & energy of those involved in getting this product from the initial idea (you Ayla) to full production & then marketed. It is a lovely piece of casting.
So then we all went out to our lovely dry wood pile & every member of our family did a test run. As you always knew it would Alya (so did I), it works a treat, even my younger teenage daughter acknowledged that & now has no excuse not to "bring in the firewood".
Kind regards Mark
Thank you …it arrived on Tuesday…it works brilliantly….
Received my KC yesterday....Ayla , you did too good a job on this...I now have a mountain of kindling! It is so easy to use!
Many thanks for such a cool and very well made item. 5 stars
Hello kindling crackers extraordinaire!
Just wanted to let you know that we picked up the package yesterday and with great excitement went to the garage to crack wood.
It was magnificent - thoroughly satisfying and addictive - the wood pile has never been so enthusiastically approached - we are delighted!
And shortly will order another one.
Thank you again
Works a treat, thanks so much. Colene
Thank you ,I will send pics once I get started on my pile of wood .
well done from a very proud owner of this product.It is indeed put together perfectly.
Barb from Whitianga
Yes I am another very satisfied customer - mine arrived last week and I was straight out to try it - I live alone and am having chemotherapy for cancer and need all the help I can get - chopping kindling has always been a struggle for me and I love my fire - so a very big thank you - it is an awesome little invention
My Kindling Cracker arrived 5 minutes ago!
All I can say is wow! Well done!
A very professionally made and presented product.
A lot of time and thought must have gone into it to get it to where it is today.
You and your team deserve a big pat on the back.
It has been great to get regular updates from you which has kept up my interest.
I will be following your progress on Facebook and on your website.
Our order arrived this week & has been put to the test.
You've ticked 11 out of 10 boxes. Brava!
Thank you. Really, thank you for such a thoughtful invention.
Hi Ayla,Just received my kindling cracker this morning, cut up some kindling,and it is the best thing since sliced bread, you have done great,with the design and looks it would also look great on the mantle piece, so i will order a second one for my daughter and son in-law soon, all the best for the future.
My KC turned up today, thanks. Test crack worked like a charm. Andrew
The cracker arrived safe and sound and we have already used it. It is great, sturdy and easy to use. Keep the good ideas coming.
No 61 has arrived and it is a cracker! go well,
I received my brilliant Kindling Cracker today, many thanks. Dave
It is great and I do hope that my son appreciated his Christmas Present! One pre used (tested by the ultimate authority and one previous owner – Mum) Kindling Cracker. Now I no longer will have that task, thank you again and again.
My order for your Kindling Cracker arrived today thank-you it looks great! But I wanted to let you know I am giving it to my mother for her 90th birthday on 11th Nov, she will love it.
