    To me, that's useful information. I really appreciate you taking the time to add the rest of the explanation--even though I'm not sure I agree with it.

    That might just be one of the most beautiful axes I have ever seen. Truly a work of art, and a functional one at that!

    A little more explanation might help clear up what he means.

    "The axis of pivot for a straight-handled ax lies in the center of the handle throughout its entire length from end knob to top side of the eye.

    But with the curved handle, any rotation is controlled by the chopper’s hands grasping the lower curve at the grip. Therefore the real axis of pivot does not pass through the ax head at all because the 10 degree bend of the lower handgrip is not pointed in that direction. The effective and real axis lies in an extension of the grip and passes somewhere to the rear of the entire axhead.
    .
    .
    .
    .
    "But this unconscious adaptation has a price. Use of the curved handle requires more practice to cut well. And even with practice, the chopper cannot attain the results possible with a straight handle. In our history, this is at least partially confirmed by the woods professionals of the era when trees were felled with axes. These men graduated from single-bitted axes on straight handles to double-bitted axes, also on straight handles. Curved ax handles do not seem to have ever attained widespread professional acceptance."
    In other words, which would you rather try to hit a baseball with... a straight bat, like they make 'em, or a crooked bat with an offset handle?
