Interesting there's no Michigan, maybe the image is from before it was a state or territory. I wonder what the difference is, just a style thing, or maybe somehow works better with the lumber in that region.

Why the double edged ax head?

I've seen these for years, but don't understand them. Is it just so you can sharpen both at once and flip it around when one gets dull?

This is my guess, when it's an hour or mores travel to the logging site and the grindstone is back at camp.

When you're swing an axe all day it get's dull, and you can only touch it up with a whet stone so much.
Having two blades you can grind them differently, one side super sharp for limbs and brush, and the other a little thicker to stand up to heavy chopping.

Don't forget it's more efficient to kill that grizzly on the back swing and not break your cadence.

I'm sure they'd carry files and whetstones with them.

I hope to go the The Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake again this coming summer. If I do, I'll take photos of their logging history exhibit. Those guys were insane. Animal.

I remember reading about how much a logger would eat at each meal, it seemed unbelievable, something like a dozen eggs, a couple of pounds of bacon or sausage, a dozen pancakes, Probably 10,000 calories if that's possible. Meals were eaten in silence and the loggers were serious about that. Probably got an ass kicking if you talked.

I wouldn't be surprised if they had guys on the crew who just sharpened shit all day long.

Grandpadigr was a logger. I can remember Popdigr telling about what his dad would eat.

He once ate three rabbits for breakfast. This was with biscuits, eggs, bacon, grits, and probably a pancake or twelve.

It's truly insane the fuel your body requires for high energy labor.

I always ate a big breakfast, a light lunch and a large supper when I was trimming trees.

And that's how you get to weigh 305 lbs after ya quit trimming trees, but keep eating like you're still trimming trees.

BTW, I'm down from a 44 inch waist to a 36. And I weighed 213 lbs last time. Yay me.

Popdigr just told me Grandpadigr thought a 'single-bitted axe' was for little girls. Nothing but 'double-bitted' axes for Pa Pa.

Not to mention high energy in cold weather!

Awesome! My buddy hiked the AT and kept eating AT levels of food after he got back and the same thing happened to him.
