I have a double bitted axe.
I use one side to cut the toe nails on my left foot and the other side to cut the ones on the right foot.
I have really thick, tough, toe nails.
Then I sharpen it again so it will be ready to trim the toe nails next week.

I have plenty of axes to grind, but none to chop with

I've got exactly the same, except only one wedge.

I have been using a Stihl MS440 w/24" bar for the last 18 years, but I need to get another smaller one, like the MS192T or MS200T. The MS440 is just too heavy to be lugging around all day.

Came with nothing good.

Got me a RED handled Axe for Mother's Day (last year)

one big chainsaw, one medium, and a POC.

One wedge, a spare axe, and an arm-straining maul.

Whoever told me to leave everything because whatever I brought I wouldn't need was spot on.

And...whoever said 'you will accumulate a lot of STUFF' nailed it.

Let's see: Connex box, sawmill, blade for tractor, guns, guns, guns, trailer, mud boots, compressor...oh, I can't even begin. Love it.

Found a huge wooden box with 400 feet of copper sheathed wire-stuff about 2 or 3 inches in diameter. The way it was put together, we truly wondered what it contained.

Still finding 'stuff' on the land.

Yup, got stuff.

I have no idea of how many axes, knifes, mauls and such, think I have four chainsaws, or maybe five... haven't seen them all in a bit. Between the house and cabin and survival gear in different pieces of equipment... Even the snowmachine has a machete under the seat except when I am driving it, then I have a chainsaw on the back too...

Similar story. I know what I've had, I have no idea what I've still got. Axes and hatchets, numerous chainsaws [starting with one I got for Valentine's Day one year- forget about chocolates] come alongs, handyman jacks, uncounted weed eaters, including a gas one that used a 7 1/4" circular saw blade for a cutter, an assortment of brush knives, sickles, and a scythe. Some got 'borrowed' and never returned, some were traded for other things. But the supply never ran out. Lots of stuff with very sharp edges. My all-time favorite hand saw was a Sandvik, had a handle with built in 90 and 45 degree angles to mark boards for cutting. Lost it in a house fire, now if I could just find another one...
