I've used both in the last year. Had to put an electric fence around my Mom's critters as a bear climbed over the fence and took out one of her alpacas.

Post hole digger didn't last long in the clay so we went out and rented a power auger.

I'd add a bow saw to that list. I grew up in a small house in MI and the fireplace was the primary heat source.
My brother and I had to hand cut 10 oak logs each day after school, keep the kindling bin full, and make sure the fire doesn't go out.

I did when I was a kid. That's why I worked my way through college. That kind of work was not appealing to me.

You don't have a tractor with a post hole digger? Clam Shells are for replacing posts here and there along with your dipple bar! (Dipple bar is a post hole tamper for you non hillbilly types) Oh, and fencing staples are pronounce "steeples"!

We had ~700 ft of fencing installed to enclose our back yard when we moved here 2 yrs ago, & the worker guys used those manual clamshell digger things to dig all the holes. Big name busy fence company in our area; you'd think they'd spring for a gas auger.

IIRC, I used one of those things once in my life a long time ago; didn't much care for it.

Looks like a digging bar to me

Clamshell digger makes you be aware of hand position really quick

The fencing pliers look too new. The ones we had needed a squirt of oil before each use.
