Bushradical   I agree with you.  I'm in the USA, and I own two Wetterlings. I'm ashamed I own them because they never go into the field.  Way too many metrosexuals own these axes and have driven them to ridiculous prices.

I use real axes, not these metrosexual toys.  I own 13 axes, and use them all the time on my farm, but the Wetterlings never go out because they are too expensive.

If I see someone with a Gransfors Bruks,  I immediately think Poseur and metrosexual from the city.

Thank you John. Just bought an axe and I'm trying to learn about the safety aspects & techniques for splitting logs. This helped a lot.
