Taiwan is a small island country off the southeast coast of mainland China. Also known as Formosa, it is the largest island of the Republic of China (ROC) in East Asia. Since the end of World War II in 1945, the island group has been under the government of the Republic of China. A hybrid of cultures, at various times the people of Taiwan have been ruled by the Dutch, Chinese, Imperial Japanese, postwar China and even, arguably, the United States. A democracy and autonomous state now, the culture of Taiwan still bears the marks of these foreign powers. The official language of Taiwan is Mandarin Chinese and the most popular foreign language in Taiwan is English, which is part of the regular school curriculum.

Seasoned splitters use a maul, not an ax, to prep firewood. (With its slim taper, an ax head often gets stuck in the end grain.) Don't use a chopping block—it reduces the arc of the swing, which decreases power. Instead, place the log on the ground, 5 in. closer than the length of the maul handle. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart; place your dominant hand at the bottom of the handle and the other hand three-quarters up the handle.
