Actually there ARE right handed axes. The heads are offset so they can be used to flatten a log into a beam. This allows the user to stand on the log and bring the axe close and flat. Of course left handed people can use them as well, just not easily.BTW what’s so funny about left handed screwdrivers? I was told they’re collector items !!
I’ve used both techniques, but used the hammered tip primarily on pressure treated wood. I’ve also used the nail spinner technique…but I’ve never tried to sharpen the point. I can see where it would help . Thanks Paul.
