Canadian Tirehickory axe handles

In january of 2016 I purchased brand new from canadian tire in perth ontario a yardworks splitting axe with a 4 1/2lb head with a hickory handle. I took said product home and after half a dozen pieces splitting, imagine my amazement when the handle did the same thing. Thinking I may have hit the handle on the block I looked to find the handle unmarked but split right from the center of the head out to a point approx 2 foot down. I went back to said store and purchased another exact same handle, and lo and behold the exact same thing happened the exact same way and place. I returned for a 3rd time and was told I was in the wrong by the way im using the axe by the way I swing it... ???. Anyway being an experienced person I took offense and have since decided to post this complaint. Im actually to the point of not wanting anything I just want others to know of my experience
