John,

If I were splitting wood on the ground, this would be a different story.  Actually, the little 16" ax is not an especially good splitter ax.  The head is too narrow.  And most of my usage has been roughly at waist or torso level.  Your pre-chainsaw ax example makes a lot more sense to me now.

Eric
