    I can't bite my tongue any longer. I am a member of Axe Junkies on Facebook but I need to get out of it. I cannot hold my tongue when I see another enthusiastic axe junkie showing off his super high polished edge on a 60° bevel.

    I don't know if that axe will ever make actual contact with a piece of wood but it won't matter how sharp or polished that edge is. The axe is going to suck and suck hard. We are talking suck starting an 18 wheeler hard sucking.

    This is a huge pet peeve of mine. We are not supposed to be negative but no one is doing that poor dope a favor by keeping him ignorant. I get so frustrated.

    A 30° edge profile is included, so 15° a side. Not 30° to 40° per side. Most of my axes are eye balled between 25° and 30° included.

    If you have a blunt edge profile you will never understand what you are missing. Please take the time to educate yourself and your entire axe experience will be completely different.

    I left that group awhile back. Too much show, no go. Depressing to see guys with 100's of high quality axe heads in buckets that will never be used.
    This is all the axe information I need or require.

    I'll go you one better: Quit Facebook. Period. Sure has made my life simpler.

    It's certainly one thing that I love about this place. People offer and accept constructive criticism with civility and grace. At the same time trolls are sniffed out quickly and delt with. I've learned a lot here on BCUSA, and made my attempts to pass on what I can.

    I hear ya, Adam. Left them behind quite a while ago, sold my patches, too, lol.
    As for Facebook, no thankee. If I could get away with not even owning a phone I'd do it.
    My dream is to build a moat around the compound and fill it with crocs and water moccasins, but they'd never survive the winter. :58:
