Is that your Russian axe? What does it weigh and what is the handle length? I didn’t make any progress and ACWC this weekend due to other projects. But I did get to work the axe a little bit. Did some heavy pruning/topping of some old neglected apple trees and thought the axe might be handy for the limbing. It worked, but way too many tangled up curvy limbs to make it efficient so I picked the chainsaw back up. Also did some invasive shrub/ undesirable tree control (hack and squirt method with herbicide). Choked up on the axe to make the necessary wounds. Need to get a proper hatchet for tasks like that. But it still worked fine.
