    I was commissioned by a friend to make two large seax knives, and asked if he'd like video footage of them in action before I ship them. He said yes. I had fun. And was almost as blown away as the chips of wood.

    That is one beastly chopper. You aren’t even taking full strength swings and it bites in so deep. Very seaxy...sorry Dad joke.

    Thank you for the kind words. Yes I was very pleased with how this machete turned out. I only wish I had gotten all 45 minutes of footage, but my phone ran out of space.

    I should say though I don't believe in using the word "sexy", as sex has one place.
