    Why do I want one of these?


    This guy's youtube channel is pretty decent. His bushcraft videos are worth watching if you are stuck at home with nothing to do.

    LOL That's a cute little chopper in the video!
    When I saw the title of the thread it reminded me of my Mama. She had split a lot of firewood in her younger years. She liked to keep her axe leaning in the corner of the living room behind the door. One day I went to see her and she was cooking supper, She blushed a little when she told me how her hands hurt to much from arthritis to split the rutabagas she was cooking with her butcher knife, so she had washed her axe head good, then swept her front porch. She laid those rutabagas on the porch and quartered them up with her axe. So her old wood splitting axe had become her kitchen axe.
    It was a axe with about a 3 pound head. I've no idea who made that old axe, but I'm sure it didn't cost $185.

    When I saw it. I thought you might like it. I need to learn how to forge weld also. I have a tomahawk eye drift that's been sitting in the shop for over a year now.

    Me too. His camera work is pretty good.

    That is a good story @SoreFeet . My great uncles talk about the wood stove their mom cooked in. My aunt said the old recipes called for a warm oven or a hot oven, because in a wood oven there was no thermostat and that was about all the control over temperature you had.

    I have used an ax in the kitchen a little bit. The last time didn't go so well. I went to cut a rack of elk ribs in half so they would fit in the pressure cooker. I took our plastic cutting board out to a stump in the back yard, but the ribs on top of the cutting board and hit it with a riggers ax. The ax went through the ribs, through the cutting board, and the cutting board flew across the yard in 2 pieces.

    I'd have to upgrade all my cutting boards if I had something like that in the kitchen.
