    Work in your favour if you get stuck in a log , swing it back over your head into the next log and bang hopefully two logs split haha

    Looks like it would be better for banging wedges. It could even be heat treated on the back side.

    That's a rafting style axe and yes they are great for wedge pounding. Usually they are best mounted on a straight handle for that purpose.

    makes sense ,they used to make split rail fences out of cedar logs here ,split the whole length of the log so it looks like a triangle sort of

    @ajschainsaws , those look great!

    Very narrow head design though. o_O

    I am planing to place an order for two new axes to try out on my current firewood log pile.
    I am thinking a 1.6-2.0kg Bosnian style like mine and a 2.0-3.0kg "Kranjska".
