Making A Splitting Maul Unnecessarily Sharp

A splitting maul needs to be sharp enough to bite into a log and not glance off. Once the edge enters the wood, it's the shape of the maul head that does the splitting.

Getting a splitting maul sharper than most folk's kitchen knives is a little overkill, but it sure was a lot of fun.
