    From where can I get the best kukri Knife ?

    @Kailash Blades - thanks, I didn't know about the forum. @ScottsBad - to each its own, I'm just more or a traditionalist and to me bent knife does not necessarily equal a kukri :), I know I'm subjective; however - we've all said before "this will be the last one" many times did we keep...

    Disappearing high center line; should we blame Hitler and big government contracts?

    I have yet another theory, just another reason and not necessarily the main one. Sharpening (properly) a high-heeled axe was also more time-demanding for the occasional user. More metal to fill away, bothering when all you want is to "get things done", not necessarily in the most efficient...

    Titanium alloy plate axe

    Love the music and the axe is cool as well for what it is. You remind me of the "Scumbag Steve" meme with that hat :D but as an (early) 80s kid loved the whole vibe of the video. You'd also make a better ninja than me, glad to see you didn't lose anything valuable while making the video :D.

    Give me your opinions of these steels being used for an Axe Head.

    HELP: My Axes Are Not SHARP! What to do from here?

    A burr can give the false impression of sharpness. It is, after all, a very tiny bit of metal that can still cut.

    Splitting axes

    We always like to make things more complicated around here (by offering many suggestions). Out of the kindness of our heart, really :p - check out this beauty: A rafting axe, a fireman's axe (especially vintage-made if you like to refurbish and really "make it yours") should serve you well.

    What did you rehang today?

    I only recalled today that I had asked a question in this thread; and voila, here was the answer :)! Thank you, I appreciate all the details (especially since posting it involves more effort on your part than for us living in more "domesticated" parts of the world). You've done a fine work...

    It followed me home (Part 2)

    I like them. Had 3 in care for a few months, they were a riot. The male would want to take on bikers and horses. Had to keep a close eye on that little beast!

    It followed me home (Part 2)

    I'm pretty sure you also found yourself a little French Bulldog. Or was it with you before you went down in the basement? :D "It followed me upstairs. I was making a steak."

    axes of the movies

    Sometimes, the props are made out of aluminum. Milla Jovovich wasn't "killing" those zombies by swinging two steel bruisers.

    Help identifying Movie or TV Prop Axe

    Liked the movie movie; I guess you could make some profit on those unless you want to keep both. Now if you can get your hands on the cleaver as well :)...
