    Thanks for the post. I never thought of doing it this way. Another technique in the plethora of goodies already between the ears.

    Thanks for pointing this out.

    Hmmmm... in a SHTF situation, it might come in handy to bring dinner to your cook fire, lol.

    Note to self: have at least one other person armed and ready to "make meat" when harvesting firewood this way.

    Now, THAT is the coolest thing I've seen a good while. I somehow overlooked that when I moseyed around his channel. Thanks for bringing it to light.

    Many of us have done the "whacking" thing for breaking branches into useful firewood...and for those who have not, here is the method to the madness:

    Done this a lot over the years. When possible use softwoods (conifers) preferably and wood that's been down long enough to be very dry on the inside. Some tree species, like oak, hickory, ash, etc are way harder to break this way and if it's green at all, it won't. Sometimes it's just easier to start your fire and then just feed your wood in to it or burn from the middle for longer pieces that won't break. Thanks for sharing Grizz.

    Grizz: I find this truly amazing, and I am definitely going to try it. It has to be in the technique. Kind of like tearing a phone book in half. Takes 90% of the time out of cutting fire wood. Thanks for sharing.
