This has probably been mentioned on LJ before, but here it is again for anyone who missed it.
The Federal Highway Administration has a bunch of publications by the US Forest Service. You can download pdf versions of all sorts of saw books – crosscut saws, how to choose them, how to sharpen them, how to identify them in the wild (so you don’t shoot one by mistake when you’re hunting moose.) They’ve also got stuff on chainsaw sharpening.
But the publication I found most interesting had nothing to do with saws. It’s called “An Axe to Grind” and is 68 pages of history, development, lore, sharpening tips and pictures of every type of style axe. If you’re into axes and don’t know the difference between a Wisconsin double-edged axe, a Narrow Michigan and a Pennsylvania then go download the book.
