Keep the Bushman Axe by Les Stroud in you backpack and you are ready to handle most situations. Apart from felling and limbing smaller trees, the Bushman Axe also is handy when chopping firewood, due to its slightly broader and wedge-shaped head. The axe has got a hammer neck can be used lightly as a hammer if needed. 

Chopping & stacking CORDs of wood in the White Mountains of Arizona with my dad in fall was a welcomed ceremony. The smells, the labor and the reward of warm fires that kept us sustained throughout the winter, were things I looked forward too every year. I also looked forward to swinging a proper axe...without a good axe the task would have been inefficient and not enjoyable. I was taught early on to always have well crafted tools for the task at hand.

Wetterlings have been hand-made and eye-measured with the greatest care since 1880. The heads are hand forged Swedish carbon alloy steel, this way of forging produces an exceptionally strong & durable edge. The handles are hand shaped American Heartwood Hickory that is strong and fitted with hardwood wedges and steel rings.
