Great video - very entertaining. I am surprised by the entrenched views taken by some of the contributors to the thread though. There is always an ideal tool for every situation and application but, whether in the interests of lightweight or forgetfulness, if you forget your axe or hatchet, why not baton with a knife? You may have to work a bit harder to get that edge back once you've returned home but, if it's all you've got when you're in the woods, it seems foolish not to use it.
By and large, I do tend to take an axe for batoning; if the aim is to take less and make my pack lighter, I take my little Husqvarna hatchet which is brilliant. However, I am not afraid to use my knife, if circumstances demand it, to split wood for the fire.
I like the idea of splitting wood with a spoon. Is it possible with a spork? Perhaps then one of the most useless and poorly designed things in the entire outdoor activity world would have a real purpose...
Secondly i often smile when I see people carry so many sharps about. Most UK bush crafters do Not require an axe for the style of bushcraft they practice. Generally camping for one or two nights less than 500m from their cars.
