    I keep realizing how having my "Dragon Slayer" ax makes me not needing a splitter! :cool:

    Yesterday, turkey oak knot, my old faithful ax went straight through.

    Not bad at only 1.8kg of weight, though on a 40" handle. ;)
    I can swing this thing all day long without getting tired. :)

    That long handle can really generate some power!

    This particular ax makes splitting large firewood rounds a pleasure, I enjoy it almost as much as I like bucking logs. :)

    On straight grain rounds I only lift the ax and let gravity do the work.
    The ax head is only 1.8kg which is a little under 5lbs, I can swing it in rapid fire mode without getting tired.

    I tried 32" handles when I couldn't source a 40", they don't work for me at all.

    About finished cleaning up this old Plumb #4 I found. Need a handle yet..

    Don't know yet if I'll leave as is, polish a bit more, or apply a patina. It took a very nice edge.

    The deadliest axe I've ever swung! Got it and cash value on trade for a gold coin. I have nothing in it. Any ideas on the make? Appears to be an "I" IMG_20200213_150357860.jpg IMG_20200213_150357860.jpg
