Original Woodman’s Pal
The Woodman’s Pal is familiar to most of us who have been in and around the woods for any length of time. You might have first seen it hanging on the wall of your grandfather’s tool shed, and that same tool is probably still kicking butt today. This brush axe/machete performs the tasks of many tools, making it one of the original outdoorsman’s multitools. With it, you can trim, prune, blaze trails, cut brush and build a camp and its furnishings. A practiced arm can cut brush up to 1.5 inches in diameter in one stroke. The handy hook on the back of the blade will save your back by reducing thousands of bends to pick up branches and cuttings.
