Double bit means you'll always have a sharp blade.

The 5160 steel head on Council Tool’s Saddle Axe ($150) has two cutting edges: a 25-degree flat edge for shaving kindling and a 32-degree one for splitting thicker firewood. The 16-inch hickory handle slips into your backpack until you need the tool.
