Handy Machete Works Like An Axe

If you're looking for something to chop brush, trim trees, etc., you'll want to take a close look at the Woodman's Pal, which the manufacturer describes as "a machete with the power of an axe".
  The 17-in. long tool is designed to trim, prune, chop, and split. On one side it has a 1/8-in. thick, high carbon steel blade. On the other side there's a small concave blade that will slice through branches up to 1 1/2 in. in diameter with a single stroke. There's also a sharp sickle hook that slices through vines and briers and removes unwanted sprout growth at ground level. The tool's line of balance runs from the grip through the sickle edge for a powerful and comfortable swinging motion, says the company.
  The tool can be equipped with either a hardwood handle or a leather grip. Comes with a leather sheath or belt loop.
  With a hardwood handle it sells for $49.95 plus S&H; with a leather grip handle, $59.95 plus S&H. The belt loop sells for $8.50; leather sheath for $19.50.
