Sorry, what I meant to say was try chopping your hand off.
I understand what he's trying to do but I'll take more blade any day of the week. I think he could have shortened the handle lenght without losing much of the knifes chopping prowess.
I'm wondering if there's a reason that there aren't other knives that are that size and mostly handle
actually, a fair number...
the Fiskars mini brush hook chops well beyond what you'd expect (sure, it's 25 dollars, soft steel, polymer handle, but it DOES chop, wow]
or as a little bird reminds me, the Japanese forest "axe"... lots of handle.
and a host of others. some have canted blades. some don't. nothing new under this sun?
All good points. I always surprise myself with how much I don't know. Maybe the only defining line exists in my mind, but I think of your examples more as general tools. When I'm looking at, what I think of as, specifically knives I haven't seen as much variation. Even if a big knife has a handle big enough to slide back into a rear grip the blade is still much longer than the handle to make it look more... normal. At least to me.
I have to agree with other comments...
The BK4 and 9 looked very halfhearted chopping. The first 2 there was a lot of leg movement and off hand balancing but the last 2 appeared out of gas.
Should have rotated the first to the last then 2nd to the first and so on, every round.
It was okay and I appreciate the time it took to do everything but it just screams Tanner vs Becker and somehow that thing got way too much credit...
