"If you were going to be stranded somewhere in the wild or were facing an impending apocalypse, and could only outfit yourself with one implement, you would be wise to choose the axe. Part tool, part weapon, it’s no mystery as to why men have felt a primal attraction towards axes for thousands of years. It’s an allure that manifests itself beginning at a young age." - Brett McKay
I've used axes and hatchets more in the last couple of years than most of my previous life. I have more respect than ever for these simple, versatile and powerful tools.

What's your favorite wood cutting tool? (My current go-to is my "Hultafors Classic" wood carving hatchet.)
