Here's What Actual Woodsmans Pal Users Have to Say:

"I was a half mile up from the line truck working on some trees on the primary line when my chainsaw quit. My tool finished the job. A 40 foot poplar is just a snack for a Woodman’s Pal!"  –M.W.L.

"Just wanted to say thanks for your excellent service! The Woodsmans Pal I had ordered arrived much earlier than expected and it is perfect.  I'll definitely recommend your site to friends and family."  —Scarlett S.

"I'm on a Search and Rescue team in Oregon where we spend a lot of time hacking through heavy brush and blackberries. I recently purchased a Woodsmans Pal and have already spent a few days searching with it, hacking through brush for eight hours at time. I have to say that your tool beats any machete I've tried, and is the best tool for my job."  –Dan A.

"The Woodsmans Pal performs flawlessly under some very hard use. It was sharpened once and held the edge well even though we use the Woodsmans Pal every year to maintain the trails to our favorite fishing spots as well as knocking back the saplings and other brush that encroach on the yard and driveway. It is a great tool and perfect for our needs."  –Mitch G.

"I’ve recently purchased your woodman’s pal and am very impressed with the quality of the tool. It's hard to find good tools!" –Rob N.
