    So the hint of woodsmoke in the air is of no use to you? How far removed have Y'all become from your forebears?

    So the splitting maul and wedges in the garage are just pieces of Florida History? LOL.

    I'm kind of partial to the Old Military Machete.

    I always have a machete/cane knife close at hand. They are indispensable in the Florida woods.

    Yes Sir, I agree with you on that. I am sure there's jobs that the lumberjacks use a two man saw on, but for Joe six-pack not so much. I lived in Northern Indiana for about ten years and we cut wood for fire places every year. There was a few guys that would use long handle axes but by far more had chain saws. The big thing up there was the log splitter. LOL!

    Guess a 2 man saw is even a more foreign concept?

    About the straight handle & axemanship 101.

    So how many of Y'all have a six pound swamp ax with a 36 inch straight handle laying around from Pa's time? Can y'all use it?
    Or has the chainsaw totally replaced the ax?
    This being machete country, does your machete get more work than either the chainsaw or the ax?
