    Big knife >12" or an Axe/Hatchet?

    Personally I really love my big knives for splitting and processing wood.....most of the time.

    Ox Head axe for me. Does everything around camp and on the trail. It's always razor sharp.

      My preference for winter is a hatchet.

        Axe for me if running a hot tent.

          I use both. Bigger stuff is split with the axe, but I do a lot of batoning with my large knife, splitting kindling.

            Same for me. Axes are meant for splitting. I feel large knives/machetes are best suited for a jungle type environment. I am of the opinion that winter camping with a hot tent is not a lightweight endeavour and I would prefer use the proper tool for a given task. It is safer, and more effective in terms of time and calories expended.

            Cheers
