When I was a kid, bout 50 years ago, Stanley Tools had a handle mill in town. It was a source of income for some folks around here to make hickory splits for the handle mill. It was amazing to watch how some people could take a stump about 2 ft in diameter and 1-1/2 to 2 ft long and reduce it to little sticks that were 2” x 2” x whatever the log length was. Splayed that sucker open like a “blooming onion” just using a carpenter’s hatchet. And some of these guys could make 1000’s of those splits in a day; for a nickel each.
