That's why I always set up the chopping area near to someone else's car  :whistle:

We don't really have an axe culture, if I can call it that.
We BBQ mostly using wood, so most people will have an axe, generally seen as a blunt force instrument with edges in a very sorry state.

But I know better thanks to YT and this place.......

First time I used my shaving sharp Council Tool I almost got my leg......only thing that saved me from stitches was half-remembered safety advice on stance.....  :facepalm:

It won't come as a surprise to any one on here that I have multiple axes   ;)  ;   a "good" one with a nice edge, a "rough" one for tree roots etc (and it really is rough - we seem to have lots of rocks that hide amongst tree roots around here), a medium splitting axe, large splitting axe, splitting maul and several other axes that I haven't used for ages so can't remember them.  I also have several smaller tomahawks for splitting kindling, cutting off small limbs etc.

Mostly these days I use my 36V Ryobi electronic for cutting, and the medium Fiskars splitting axe for splitting firewood.
