i camp in the same spot all summer... so at the beginning there's so much dead wood around that i don't really need any tool to process it... an axchet is pretty much all that is needed... and needed more as time goes on.

sadly by the end of summer i've burned everything easy within quite a large radius of camp, and that's when i need to start packing out a bow saw and cutting dead shit down and sawing-up logs into firewood.

the knife is 100% essential for every campout whether i need a hatchet, saw, or not. i don't see how you could sub either of those for a knife and vice versa

Depends on the job

Most stuff, a knife

Gathering wood for shelter or whatever, saw

Splitting wood for fire, an axe

The hatchet is limited in terms of usefulness

Ah shit breh.

I just don't get why more people don't use them.

Great for putting in and removing stakes. And you never know when you'll need a hammer.

>sauce?

my own experiance. its blade is shorter than that of a traditional hatchet, and its a bit lighter. what this means is with the same force, it cuts deeper into the wood, meaning you get more wood being chopped on average per swing.

>22 inch
>thinks that its all metal
>doesnt even know how to shorten a handle even for his own manlet self

dont talk shit on something you have never seen, let alone own.

you can if you want it shorter, it doesnt take axe handles, it takes tomahawk handles, which are different. you can cut it down to about 18" without losing to much power in the swing.

but only manlets like to cut it down. the longer handle makes up for the less bulk and smaller cutting edge, which in turn makes it more efficient.

You can't really pick "Either Or" in this situation because both tools are made for totally different purposes.

Would I rather have a hatchet than a large knife to baton wood? Yes.

Would I skin a Deer with a hatchet? No.

Really I'd rather have both. It's a stupid argument.

I prefer them all for their respective jobs
I value the knife because you can always have one on you, weights next to nothing and tends to speeds your campwork a lot
In the winter I would say axe is the most important tool because of the firewood, it's inreplacable when it comes to splitting and speeding your woodwork, it don't need spare blades like saw, it's close to being indestructible and very easy to sharpen, even with a piece of rock
saw on the other hand is great when it comes to branches, just take one overnight, and make your fire next to fallen tree, efortless firewood
it also can do lot of stuff axe can't especially advanced carpentry and woodworking, you could build a cabin with those two, they complete each other perfectly
add crook knife and proper auger to it and there are all tools I need

man I wasn't expecting all this its very rare I take anything larger then a penknife in the woods. I keep my axe so sharp that I can use it just like a knife. I mean in my mind a saw is bleeding useless. there isn't one thing a saw can do that I cant achieve with my axe. I guess I just come from a different line of thinking.
