Axe: for the coarser work
An axe is a tool that has been around for centuries. Also the purpose of the ax has never really changed. The quality of the axe has improved a lot over the years.
The head of the axe is made of forged iron that ensures that you can easily break through the wood. You can use the larger axes with a longer handle for cutting down trees. With this you can make a long sweep to hand out the blow. The shorter, smaller axes are often used for camping or during bushcraft or hiking trips. Especially the weight to carry the axe during the trip is of course important here.
