Tribute to a true hero.
Chopping and splitting wood for your campfire is about to become one of your favorite parts of camping thanks to the Barebones Pulaski Axe. This sturdy axe's weighted head boasts a rounded 1055 high-carbon steel blade that slices through wood with ease and keeps its edge chop after chop and a horizontal mattock designed for cutting roots and digging trenches. A gorgeous beech handle offers a warm, smooth feel, and it has a steel core that ensures stability and durability.
An unsung hero in the history of the USDA Forest Service, Ed Pulaski was a local ranger who bravely led a team of 45 volunteers into the fray during a huge fire known as The Big Burn in 1910 near the Idaho-Montana border. When the fire almost engulfed his team, he led them to an old mine shaft he knew of where they sought shelter. Although most of them made it out, five men died from suffocation, leading to public outrage when the story came out. You see, the Forest Service had been mostly disbanded under President Taft in the preceding years, meaning there was little in the way of professional help or medical aid for Pulaski and his men. Suddenly, support for the Forest Service dramatically increased and it was reinstated under Teddy Roosevelt, and has existed in its current form ever since. As for Pulaski, he later invented the Pulaski axe to help future Forest Service firefighters prevent fires more effectively. His axe is designed to not only chop wood, but to also cut roots and dig trenches so fire prevention practices can be more effectively employed.

Grab greatness by the shaft
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
With its well weighted head, and immaculate handle, some weaker humans may say that this axe is too much, that they can't swing that amount of mightiness, that they don't want their names engraved in the halls of greatness and to become immortal among men and women. But you aren't one of those lesser beings. You eat, sleep, hell, even sh** greatness! And what goes good with greatness? The Barebones Pulaski Axe. Get yourself one and become a legend. Nuff said.
But... I can say more.
