I cleared my list of gear I want. I'm happy with everything I own. I don't need anything new. YouTube trap for 2 hours. WHAT AXE IS THAT!?!?! Ooooo, Gransfors Outdoor Axe YouTube trap and various online reviews for 2 more hours... I MUST HAVE IT. But really? Is it worth it? Right now I have a fiskars X7. Bought it for $25. Friend made me a kydex cover that cost as much as the axe... It cuts well, splits great, but I'll be damned if it doesn't look like it belongs on the death star being carried as a backup weapon for storm troopers. I don't mind modern gear. I own HPG packs. I use kydex. This thing is just ugly as sin (to me). It cuts well, it does it's job, but I just don't.... Feel it. While I'm using it. Is that shallow? Stupid? Is spending 6 times as much going to get me anything more? Will I actually have less function than with the X7? Just looking for opinions from the folks that understand how my brain works. Not going to talk to the wife about it... "YOU BOUGHT ANOTHER AXE/KNIFE/TARP/PACK?!?" Thank you all!
