    You can't go far wrong with a Golok especially for splitting wood!
    If there are no women around and a man says something, is he still wrong?

    Small wood hatchet (Brades Criterion) and a Folding Saw combo. Can do pretty much everything I need with that. Knock up a few wedges and can pretty much split anything.

    I've got a Kukri that I use for Gardening and occasionaly in the field, prefer the above combo though. My old man bought it back as a present from Nepal, The tradional ones look much better I have to say.

    this time of year I'm mostly using a Billhook

    If I'm splitting wood then I'll either use an axe or a froe, depending on why I'm splitting it. I have kukris, goloks, machetes, etc, but I like my billhooks. Each country has a big slashing-shopping blade created over the generations to cope with it's native environs, in the UK we have the hook

    My favourite knife is a Tora Camping Kukri.It does the job of a machete, a knife and a hatchet:

    I use a k-bar kurkri as my main camp knife and it tackles most jobs, also good for digging small holes.

    Each tool has it's place and each will have it's advocates and I use them all when the circumstance dictates, however if you want an all round cutting tool the best one I have found is a Leuku.

    Have to agree with Lure's, I also take a Leuku for most of my camp chores
