I have a small, but handy 16" quite old mccullough and a 20" Poulan. Used them both when we were clearing some land.

I can't even go here and probably have more I don't even know about...Little hatchets, splitting mauls, several axes, then if I go into saws...can't count the swede saws, chain saws, more than anyone needs...does brush wacker count too...and won't go into wood saws...

Back in the day when I worked for YACC...we used what we called a Sandvik. Swedish made I believe. Had a handle like hatchet but slightly longer, and it had a razor sharp thin blade. It would slice through a 2 or 3 inch sapling like butter. Never have seen them since.

Hey I found them!

I just have a few axes to grind. Nothing beyond a hatchet in the tool inventory.
