Manual i would say a fiskars splitting axe. You can split hardwood with out even standing it up. Manual spitters its all about the head shape.

I would second the fiskars splitting axes. Lightweight and space-age design. Easily out does my splitting mauls that previously I used for years.
Trick of these axes is to keep edge razor sharp.
But basically they a one chop, one split.

I did upgrade to a White gas engine log splitter. Found one at family farm under tarp. Father in law passed away and he sold farm equipment. Cleaning out barns and lookie here. Wonderful machine Even Ironwood doesn't stall it.
