I am looking for non-powered hand tools and maintenance items for hand tools such as a way to sharpen and oil them.
I'm on 7 acres in the Pacific Northwest.
Some jobs that need to be done around here include prune plants and trees, Chop wood, break up big logs, fell trees, weeding gardens, planting seeds, collecting seeds, collecting harvest (veggie, fruit, nut) , butchering meat animals, install posts for fencing, planting trees, moving heavy objects and materials.
Please provide URLs for recommended tools where I can buy them. I do realize I may need 3 different types hoes for example.
Tools that will last a lifetime(s) when they are maintained and put away.
Tools that can be sharpened -- I'm thinking that means Carbon Steel.
Tools that are low wear on the user (such as long handle tools).
Disclaimer: I am working through the suggestions slowly, feel free to help me out by making more specific suggestions.
1. So far I feel I have processed the only Hoes I need (I'm most likely wrong), and broadfork
2. Please provide what I need to sharp and oil these hoes with, I think its just any linseed oil right?

40S This narrow scuffle hoe works well in the tight places that weeds like to grow and it gets you off your knees. This one comes with a 3 1/2x3 1/2x4 inch head. 34.95
65VW This is one hoe you have been asking for.....at the widest point it is 6.50 inches wide with 3 sharp fingers which can be used like a rake...the other end comes to a sharp point and has many uses...we call it the garden hoe/rake. $39.95
