    Devin Montgomery is the one that designed the light weight kettle.

    We have to do a lot of wood prep for our shoulder season trips because we do most of our cooking on a wood stove. The wood stove also makes life a lot more pleasant when we are traveling in cold, rainy weather, like we had a couple of weeks ago in Kiliuda Bay:

    We have to break the wood down small enough to fit inside the stove, obviously. My favorite saw is the Silky 180. It is the lightest off-the-shelf folding pruning saw I have found and it cuts brilliantly. Splitting the wood is not entirely necessary if you have access to a wide variety of woods, but we really love red and yellow cedar branches that floated across the Gulf of Alaska from Southeast AK, and they can be a bit fat for the stove. I have used the Marbles single bit hatchet for a few years now and find it to be an excellent balance between being light and compact, but it will still actually split wood. The shape of the wedge is very effective and the hickory handle is well made.
