Yes/no. Splitting mauls (generally) are hardened to work with a wedge. "Axes" are not. So if you want to do a lot of splitting with a wedge, you want a maul. If you just want a camp axe or something to break apart firewood you likely just need an axe.

I like hickory handled axes, not fiberglass handles.

Rubbed with linseed oil. Totally agree.

Beetle:
I like fiberglass I break wood handles to much. Sears had great axes.

FiskasX7 is what I have - not a piece of art but it cuts well. Fiberglass handle. Made in China. But it works.
