Michael Culligan

With a lifelong passion for axes that began at my grandparents’ country house, I have cultivated a wealth of experience in wood splitting, axe throwing, and lumberjack competitions. As an authority in the field, I am proud to present this website dedicated to educating visitors about the versatile uses of axes and providing in-depth reviews on axes, hatchets, tomahawks, and other lumber tools, including sharpening stones.

Our mission is to offer our readers honest evaluations of each product, empowering them to make informed decisions when purchasing new axes or hatchets.

As a seasoned expert in chopping wood, I understand the importance of having a sufficient supply of firewood to keep a home warm. Over the years, I have gained extensive knowledge in felling trees, chopping wood, storing and seasoning firewood, and properly maintaining and caring for axes.

A lover of the outdoors, I am also an avid collector of vintage axes, boasting an impressive collection of rare and unique restored pieces. I hope to share my expertise and enthusiasm for axes and lumber tools with a wider audience through this website.
