    the fiskars works because it is moving fast, the sharper the better for those one hit splits. Just like an aluminum bat swings faster than a wooden one, they both can hit the ball as far, but the wooden bat takes much more effort to swing

    HD I use the cement blocks like that, but I lay the center blocks with the holes side ways gives a bigger foot print in soft soil.

    cinder block laying on its side has a lot less structural strength than sitting upright that is why they are not layed in a wall with the holes out.

    True, but in a wall they are filled with rebar and grout, making the wall solid. The block by itself is pretty weak

    Unfilled, upright cement block is what is supporting my floor joists in the crawl space and has been for 60 years.
