VIDEO: Ray Mears- How to Properly Use and Split with an Axe, Selecting an Axe

This video has been out for a while, but judging by the number of people still using dangerous and improper axe techniques on Youtube videos, etc, we thought we'd share it to encourage safety and proper form. It's a great video and Ray is one of the best in the field. Please Tweet this or share it on your Facebook!
