Haha, thx. I’m a pretty strong minded guy. I can resist everything but temptation.Nice!
The Gransfors SFA is a popular choice on NES. I swear by mine. It's an outstanding all-purpose tool.
Congratulations. I don't see that as a "weak moment" at all.
Grabbed this little Council Tool hatchet for the sole purpose of sitting by the back door in case I ran out of kindling. Only used it a couple of times.
Have some random Coleman steel handle cheapie in my truck, just in case, have a couple of random axes that get used a couple of times a week around the house, picked up a nice Woodings-Verona 6 pound maul head off of fleabay and put it on a Truper glass handle. I tried to use it today for the first time and it bounced off this petrified oak. Out came the 8 pound Council Tool maul that I already had-Grainger was blowing them out on ebay a few months ago. That thing bounced off this oak too. Had to break out the cheap little splitting wedge I picked up at the Habitat for Humanity. I probably have another 30' of this petrified crap oak to cut and split. Good free wood and good exercise.

I may be 'Bad' for your wallet... but I'm great for your "Preparedness'...!
In hard times, that Gransfors Bruks Splitting Hatchet will be worth more than a fist-full of greenbacks. A very wise choice...
