ETA: recommendations on the idea of multiuse and lightness. Stay safe and light.
A saw is used for making long things short. An axe or hatchet will excel at limbing and felling trees. I have a Junglas and it's a fine tool but my axe is better for chopping. I've got a nice Silky pruning saw that rockets through limbs but it can't remove them from a tree faster than my axes nor would a folding saw be the best choice from cutting them down.

The Fiskars hatchets are great. They are the Glocks of the axe/ hatchet world.

My brother has a gerber. I sharpened it for him and it took a decent edge. Sucks he doesn't have a sheath for it. A sheath less axe is almost useless. Dangerous to walk around with a sharp axe. I have heard great things of the new fiskars. I just love old school wood handles.

Gerber...Fiskars... same company. I've not been impressed with their products for a number of years now. I do still enjoy their scissors however.

Ugly and square?
Actually not a bad looking hatchet.
