Here are some pictures from more testing at home. I have quite a few oak branches needing to get chopped up and burned so that is what I am using. I used this Serechete at 88 Tactical a bit so not exactly a new edge but yep it's sharp. Making a machete assist tool Mr. Black showed us. A type of hook to grab and hold objects to cut. Here I am using the hook tool to hold saplings and black raspberry bushes to cut. Trying out a technique Mr. Black displayed using short swings to conserve energy while turning the wood to make a point. Making quick feathers with the non scandi edge. Splitting hatchet like. Using the scandi edge for feathers. 90 degree spine making a pile of scrapings with ease.
