Me and my axe

Spent the day in the woodlot, frantically trying to catch up before snow comes. Got to use my Chopper1Axe, given to me by Carl and Anne Lene. And boy, what a wonderful tool this is. It has some kind of scary spring mechanism inside that prevents the axe from getting stuck.
There are a lot of diesel- and electricity-powered wood splitters on the market, that all seem to me to be horribly complicated and expensive, and with the word "wimp" embossed all over them. This sweet little honey is all human powered, but just very cleverly engineered.
Hermit's verdict: Wonderful invention for anyone who does their work in the woodlot by hand.
