Pretty much, my gauge for having a use is "Do I have one of these?" Oh,
and am I willing and able to pay the price. I am thinking about the
Picard -- come on, Star Trek. But I have a Hudson Bay pattern trade ax,
and I have a little Russian hatchet (very interesting feel to this one
because the handle is silver birch which, so light weight, changes the
balance of the piece. Interesting when working with it. Had to have
that one for the one time a year I demonstrate at Fort Ross.
