One of the things that I teach students during this presentation is the anatomy of an axe. Specifically, I teach them the anatomy of a single-bit, Michigan Pattern felling axe. In addition to pointing out the parts on a real axe, last week I decided to draw up a diagram to give the students. I also included small drawings of two other axes that I show to students - a double-bit axe and a hewing axe.
