This has probably been covered more than once, but here goes again. I am in the process of trying to decide which axe I want to purchase to carry while I'm in the woods. I like the length of the bit and shape of the carpenter's axe, and don't necessarily need the 26" length of the Forest Axe. But on the other hand, would the Forest model be a better all around axe? I feel that the 4"+ bit of the Carpenter's Axe would serve me better, and the 20"(ish) length is more carry/pack friendly. MAKE UP MY MIND FOR ME!!!
