Iím based out of the backcountry in Ontario, no vehicle close by, mostly out of my canoe, I have several options available depending on the needs of the trip, I primarily use my Silky Saw and knife but will often bring a small hatchet or tomahawk if it isnít a portage heavy trip.

In many cases a knife alone is insufficient, often forcing you into using small stuff, a solid axe or saw allows for the harvesting of much larger pieces wood.
