 :iagree:

I agree, Sparky. I like a tomahawk, but I find a proper hand axe to be a bit more useful. The tomahawk's blade tends to be overly thin, which limits it in some ways.

Sparky is right, Fuzzy. You really owe it to yourself to try a nice hand axe or hatchet. Do be careful though--accidents are more likely with a small axe than a large one.

Ahhhh... Sorry, Fuzzy.

So, to be clear, you are NOT looking for a medium-sized forrest axe like this Snow & Nealley:

Great video Sparky... I have to say I was taken aback when you whipped your chopper out at the end, wasn't expecting that.  :tu:

Yeah, OK, no worries. I won't post this photo of my Snow & Nealley in the snow, next to a SAK as thick as a burger:



But, I will say this S&N is a really delight to handle. A bit smaller than a GB Forrest Axe, but the balance is impeccable. If one chokes up, it can handle like a hatchet. Yet it works really well with a two handed grip. (Just be sure you have a good stop and won't swing it through something and into your leg.) This thing is a perfect kindling maker.

That is a most excellent looking axe!  :like: How long's the shaft, 24"?

Talking of kindling... actually, hold on, I don't know if I should post any of my grotty pics now...?

... I was using the hawk again today to cut some more kindling - I trying to stockpile a decent amount so that the old farts don't need to do anything when I'm away down south.
Anyway, I was all set to concede to Nix that tomahawks are not quite up there with a decent hatchet in terms of usefulness/usability, but actually this one's pretty darn good actually and I'd say on a par with my Bahco axes... and really good fun to use.
As well as cutting some more hardwood kindling, I also quickly chopped quite a lot of sticks from the stick pile - two tomato crates worth, which is alright.

Top of head to bottom of handle is 23" (58 cm).

Feels just perfect.

But, then, I say the same thing about my GB Forrest Axe which has a longer handle (25"? 63 cm?).....
