I sure agree.  I looked at a lot of his past work and he is really talented.  He has a few styles that if they come up for sale I will try to get.

I seemed to always want one but never found one small enough for what I do.  Yours looks like it will work well.  Good find.

Axes, Saws and Tomahawks / Collins Cruiser Axe project
« Last post by OutdoorEnvy on Today at 10:38:49 AM »
Well it only took around a decade for me to come by a cruiser double bit in my local area.  Picked up this Collins Cruiser double bit at a local antique store the other day.  So excited to have it!  Always wanted one and this is my first.  Will post project updates as I work on it. 

Head removed for cleaning up!

Handle isn't quite saveable for a user axe... a wall axe it would be fine but I want to use this when I'm done so finding a new handle will be in order

stay tuned...

General Discussion / Soils

When playing outside we are most often playing in, on and around soil. Often called dirt but it is by definition different. Turns out soil is far more complex than usually credited and more fragile than previously recognized.

One aspect of soil is the existence of microscopic Archaea organisms. First identified and named in 1977 Archaea are found all through the Biosphere from the boiling geysers of Yellowstone to the human gut and in soils everywhere. Archaea were previously considered bacteria but it turns out they are substantially different. To date it's estimated only about 20% of existing Archaea in soil have been classified.

Not a Biology lesson by any means just a recognition that camping, trekking or sitting  under a tree enjoying ourselves theres a lot more going on all around than we may realize, even if we don't understand all of it.

Kind of humbling in a good way it seems.

Happy trails
