    Get a Tajima G-Saw 240 and an import hatchet from the hardware store - $50 total. The saw will be your wood getter and any little hatchet will serve fine for stripping bark and splitting small firewood. Spend the savings on a 10" or 12" double cut file to keep the hatchet sharp.

    So can anyone recommend some decent boys axes? Does Husqvarna make a good boys axe? I'm looking at one now that looks like a good size.

    Personally I would go with a boys axe from council tools if not doing a restore of an old axe. Husqvarna doesn't produce axes, they contract them out. I believe hults bruk produces their current line.

    Sounds right to me.

    And even though Husqy doesn't make their own axes they are pretty decent value for a good axe.
