We don't chop wood every day here at Uncrate HQ, but when we do, we use the smartly designed Super Splitting Axe ($40) from Fiskars (yes, the scissors people). With a 28-inch handle, a 4-1/4 pound head, and a lightweight, glass-fiber reinforced handle, you'll be splitting wood like a modern Paul Bunyan. The carbon steel blade has a PTFE coating which reduces friction, making for easy removal from the logs. And if you think this works well for splitting wood, just wait until you try it against zombies.
This vintage-looking metal tool box is perfect for your girl-size collection of hand tools. Made of heavy duty steel and emblazoned with some awesome lettering, the Milwaukee General Purpose Carrying Case ($37) will hold all the essentials, and sports a lift-out tray for smaller parts (like your drill bits or "tobacco" pipes), while at the same time looking a thousand times better than those cheesy ballistic nylon tool bags.
