Using an Axe by Lars Falt

Following on from the success of "Outdoors the Scandinavian Way - Summer Edition Lars Falt currently has two further books being translated in to English, an axe book and a knife book.

The axe is a vitally important tool for every outdoorsman and woman. Drawing on his own extensive knowledge and experience, Lars Falt will guide you through what you can use an axe for, how to safely use one, and how to care for it. 

You will learn, amongst other things, how to correctly sharpen an axe, how to replace an axe handle, the right way to chop and split wood, as well as some very clever, practical lessons such as how to make a canoe paddle. From Stone Age to Space Age, the axe has been ever present, and there is a short section in the book on the history of this remarkable tool, and an interesting insight into how a hand-forged axe is made today. 

For anybody using an axe when they are in the great outdoors, this handbook is a must for your library shelf! 

Lars Falt is a world renowned survival and bushcraft expert, and has written a number of best-selling books on these topics. The knowledge and experience he has gained as the founder of the Swedish Armed Forces Survival Unit, together with working closely with indigenous peoples the world over, has been shared in a readable and entertaining way.

Brilliant no-nonsense book this on how to use an axe for a variety of tasks in the great outdoors. Superb clear photographs and straight forward explanations. Loads of good information about history, types, care and using an axe. Written by the legend that is Lars Falt I would heartily recommend this book to anyone who uses a knife regardless of experience. I also bought the Knife book to serve as a companion volume and I would recommend this as the axe and the knife work together in harmony. Can't recommend both of these books enough, simply fantastic! definitely give them both 10/10.
