The splitting axe is the best axe to make boards from tree trunks, as well as firewood from blocks of wood.

URW Game Encyclopedia description

The official URW in-game encyclopedia (accessed by the F1 key) describes the splitting axe thusly:

An axe with a rather heavy, wedge-shaped blade. Designed for splitting blocks of wood into firewood. On the other hand, a splitting axe is not so good for any other work.

Real life context

Historically, several related types of splitting axes had evolved, for splitting tree trunks lenghthways. These include cleaving axes and the heavier and maul-equipped splitting mauls.
