Coolest Axe I've Seen

I just thought I would post this up. If you do a lot of wood chopping then this axe is for you!

The axe has been reinvented in a patented Finnish invention!

Check out the video. Leave it to the Finn's to come up with this idea.

Re: Coolest Axe I've Seen

That is indeed one extremely cool, new and unique idea applied to an age-old tool.

Re: Coolest Axe I've Seen

Will I be able to to chop wood that fast (without having a coronary)? Interesting idea, that's for sure.

Actually you might check one out now...perhaps they are so unbalanced that they function in the same way

Just kidding. Love HF.

The 193 Euro won't pay the lawsuits when this is in the instructions:
"functions like a convention axe with the exception that the user must loosen his/her the grip on the handle when the blade strikes the log".

Re: Coolest Axe I've Seen

The Finns chop a lot of wood for their saunas, so they probably take their axes quite seriously...
