Wilderness Axe Skills Workshop

Wilderness Axe Skills Workshop

Paul’s favourite Bushcraft tool is the axe and he is the author of a book on wilderness axe skills and campcraft. The axe brings speed and efficiency to woodcraft. The axe is a brilliant tool to have in your woodshed but also a great enabler on a wilderness expedition. If misused, however, the axe also brings risks of significant personal injury. This is never welcome but we must be especially careful to use an axe safely when many miles from medical assistance. Paul is an experienced expeditioner, including solo wilderness trips. In this masterclass, Paul will work with you to make sure you have the techniques to apply the axe safely in a wilderness context, whether you are on a summer canoe trip or a winter snowshoeing trip in the boreal forest. Paul will also cover axe sharpening and other care and maintenance when in the field.
