    The western novel "Shane" starts out with Shane helping a frontier family clear out a stump with a heavy axe; it isan important scene to establish the relationship of the former gunfighter Shane to his adopted family. A film version was made, but I cannot remember if the axe scene was part of the film. Can any movie experts help out? :cool:

    I think the book was by Jack Schaefer in 1949, the film was from 1952. Correct me if I am wrong.:D

    That same company makes an aluminum ceremonial axe, and it's more likely that they used it as its a prop that needs to be safe.
    I don't have it anymore, but the pics on that companies website are what I based a wooden fire axe on that I made as a prop for Halloween when I was a kid. I really wish I still had it.

    The movie, "Where the Red Fern Grows", has several axe scenes, including an axedental death. The lil' punk axeualy deserved it.

    I only remember seeing the one axe though, the double bit that his dad gave him.
    It always intrigued me as it seemed to be a full sized double bit head on a hatchet length handle.

    His dad hands him a man sized double bit to finish chopping down the big sycamore that his first coon was treed in, too.
    I remember seeing "Where the Red Fern Grows" on the playing now sign in front of the local drive-in when it was first released.

    That's definitely the maker, but they also make an aluminum ceremonial version ( armorers always try to avoid real steel blades whenever possible, so I'm still assuming it may be the aluminum version )

    They are an awesome liking axe though.

    Just watched Arnold Schwarzenegger in Commando last night.1985.At the start Arnie is splitting wood and catches a reflection in a really shiny axe.Prominant in the axe is True Temper.Later while rescuing his daughter he takes out some random South {or maybe central} American guerilla with a meaty double bit.

    While not a movie, Rick Grimes' hatchet sees some pretty heavy use in The Walking Dead. Supposedly it is a Cold Steel Gang Hatchet. Every time he uses it, I turn to my wife and say, "Nice axe!" She just rolls her eyes.
