I do some Timbersports type training; mainly underhand and standing block chop; for strenght. I use it as aux. work for powerlifting or even replacing max effort sessions these days (Covid has forced me to train early in the morning and big Iron does not mix well with wee hours).

Hence, my chopping sessions are short and all out. Mostly intervals.

For firewood I just use ol’ reliable Fiskars

I think this Rinaldi is a beast of an axe. Size and shape make it very good general tool. Seems vikings got the shape right, carrying it from the head is very comfortable, more so than normal large axe.  For price; mine was 70 euros; I think it a bargain.

Having said that, it is fair to mention that I’ve only had mine for a fortnight, so far it’s only been used for 2 Timbersports training sessions and I walked about a k with it in the woods to test its Nessmuk credentials.

They are extremely comfortable to carry aren't they? I can hook mine under the beard and it just hangs perfectly.  :tu:

Come join Tazzies small and limited thread... There's four of us now!  :ahhh

True, i have a hydraulic splitter for the majority but now and again it's nice to just get out and swing the axe about  :tu:

Chopper.
It is Tuatahi’s Training Axe.
Less picky for wood than their Racing Axe
