Making a "pioneer axe." Very interesting video. You will want to watch this if you are an axe man (or woman).

I saw 2 axes marked the same US at flea market this week. Didn't buy them.

US Forest service marks all their stuff "US", If it was "GI" it would be green.

So I've been using my Husqvarna splitting maul for about a year. I split mostly chestnut oak rounds. I was was using it today and got to thinking how great its been. I rarely even use the axe. Sounds like a shotgun when that oak round cracks and those half-rounds just explode apart.

I bought one of the books on the the above site: axes and associated hand tools.

Excellent book! Has a vast amount of line drawings and info. A+
