Handtools for Trail Work: the Video

This is another great video made by the US Department of Agriculture Forest Service. It provides good basic information on a number of tools including saws and axes.

In the beginning of the first video you will see a technique called "Under-Bucking", where the axe handle is being used to support a saw. This leaves very distincluve marks on the axe handle. If you can find a vintage one, they can be worth a good amount of money.
