If you were limited to one item to bug out with for cutting wood or other heavy work what would you chose? Saw,axe,hatchet or hawk,large knife or machete? Since no one item is perfect,what would you choose?
I have at least one of each.But my opinion of what to take changes every so often. At this point my bob includes small skinning knife cold steel (Pendelton skinner) large knife Randall RTAK II more like Huge! Cold steel shovel which has been sharpened on edges. Leatherman multi on hip.Still haven't made up my mind on saws? I have one bow one buck saw. Perhaps I will take just a blade and improvise saw frame on site?
Since shovel doubles as small axe, I am not packing that weight! Although I still haven't totally ruled one out. The Estwing solid steel handled one looks good. Don't know about you but I have been know to break a handle every now and then!
I have two machetes I like as well! But you can't take it all with ya. Compromises compromises.
What are your thoughts Saw,Ax,Big knife,machete,trapper belt ax or hawk?
