My Grandfather Ross E. Clarke did some logging as a young man on Vashon Island for Pope and Talbot to suppley their Port Gamble mill. As a gradeschooler I learned how to use a double bitted axe and fall a small tree with a one or 2 man "misery" whip. Granddad had picked up saw filing as a young man and had a filing jig set up between 2 trees in the yard. His sawa and axes were always razor sharp.
