I got the Estwing sharpened sledge hammer
on: August 06, 2017, 05:39:05 AM
They call it the fireside friend.  :D  Its ridiculously heavy for carrying or backpacking but damn it splits wood well.  :D

This my 5th Estwing.  Probably the least practical, but it does double as a hitting and splitting tool!

I have seen those a few times, and they do look like great tools. Had I seen one when I still owned the boat, I might have got one - not much use to me now though  :-\

Glad to hear they work as well as I imagined  :tu: :salute:

I had a multifuel stove and a woodburning range with full oven. Most of my "log bothering" activities were to feed those two hungry beasts  :D

That is a nice little beastie.

Dad has one of the older versions of that we keep by the woodstove for splitting kindling when needed....works VERY well and has been down there as long as I can remember....except when I was 10 or 11 or so and I "borrowed" it to use when we would ride our bikes to a little wood lot and cut down trees to build a fort/shelter..we didn't really care that it wasn't an axe but for us it worked pretty well even

Ah to be young again.  I borrowed my dad's estwing hatchet back then for fort making too.  He never cared as long as I put it back where I found it.   :)
