Here is my tool of choice for the challenge. (Image removed from quote.)KenSent from my iPad using Tapatalk
Ken, I am also really excited for this challenge. There are a few other challenges between now and the axe challenge, but the axe challenge is the one that has me fired up at the moment. I think....and nobody hold me to this...that I'm going to go with this axe for the challenge:(Image removed from quote.)It is a Wetterlings Hunter's axe. It is essentially a large hatchet. The poll is rounded off. I think that was originally done so the poll could be used to help separate a game animal's hide from the carcass. This one looks like it could use a bit of cleaning up now......My grandfather taught me to sharpen an axe with a mill file and a puck like the one in the photo above. I'm curious about how you puck works. I'd be interested in upgrading mine, if yours works well. I also have taken to using bench stones and sandpaper to get a really sharp edge on my axes. For the challenge, I'm going to try to keep the axe razor sharp in order to maximize it's all-around versatility.
Nice pieces guys, I'm looking forward to this one too, I thought the Schrade Tough Tool would be my last Challenge, and then Nix comes up with this one, and it's different enough I have to participate,. I'll be using a run of the mill Estwing hatchet that my wife gave me a few years ago, but has seen limited use until now

MTo standards should be applied more extensively to the rest of the world
