Each blade is good for different tasks. There are a number of axe styles and everyone has their own preferences. For me, the best all-round axe would be a half axe, also known as a small forest axe, with a slightly concave blade with a slightly rounded edge. Convex blades A convex blade is good for splitting logs. After all, the tools should be doing the hard work, not you. Concave blades A concave blade is useful for stripping branches from trees or larger logs. It should give a good deep cut.
Simply loosen the fibrous material at one end of the bark and pull it off in long strips. Then separate these strips until you have lengths of the required thickness. 65 You should also bear in mind that most natural fibres will shrink as they dry which makes the weave looser. A good compromise is to soak dry materials ! rl = in water before you process them: they wili shrink a lot less than when they dry from their natural state. (This process is called'retting'. If you take pieces of D 2 trt bark offyoung lime, willow or sweet chestnut trees and soak them in a river for = c, a while, the natural fibres will free themselves from the bark.
With a knife you move the blade over the sharpening equipment; with an axe you move the sharpening equipment over the blade. This means that the blade stays still and your hands move. For this reason you should always wear a sturdy pair of gloves when sharpening an axe. Also, don't be tempted to place the axe on your knees - remember those arteries between your thighs? At home, place it on a table; in the field you should kneel down with the axe raised on a tree trunk or other object in front of you.
