Oh no! Ray does it too?! Looks like that's it then, I can carry on batoning without fear
I as have many find the sfa or similar a very good axe to split smallish diameter stuff for the camp fire, the blade isn't too thin and I cant recall having it ever stick in the wood, I guess its all down to techniqueAlot of the arguments on this thread are about using an axe- so what axe are you all using that is really the "proper tool" for splitting compared to a knife?
If its a gransfors bruks small forest axe or similar I got to say that is not a good choice of axe for splitting- the blade is too thin. Its more like a mini felling axe. That thin blade is more likely to stick in the wood -great for slicing fibres though. So where is your splitting maul? Too heavy to carry right?
No, the tins are the same, I've bought paint in the UK before also. But that was more than 25 years ago. The openers don't come "on" the cans here either, the store gives it to you. Just the same as they give you a free stirring stick with every can you buyThink paint tins might be different in USA...........which is where the OP resides.
Must admit I've never seen them here.They had big ones in the UK when I was there in the 1980s.
Really? The stirrers are cheap (they cost the stores about $1 for 100 and have the stores name/logo inked on for added advertisement. The openers are nearly as cheap. Both are just something cheap to throw in to gain/keep customer loyalty.Very rare that you find a DIY shop giving can openers and stirrers away for free in the UK.
