    Default Modern Marvels-Axes

    I confess to watching only part of this but was quite taken with what I have seen so far. I'll watch the rest later.
    For all us axe lovers:

    loving that guys 1000 axe collection though, if he teamed up with someone with a rake obsession they would have a pretty deadly collection

    Great vid. Good to see the forging techniques and variety of styles/shapes/sizes.

    I think it may be the only time I've seen a woman weilding an axe...although I guess most men seeing a woman weilding an axe don't live to tell the tale.
    I consider myself lucky to have seen this vid ;O)

    Interesting that the iconic Native American tomahawk was a European introduction originally...

    That was actually a really interesting video, especially the fibreglass firemans axe handles Cheers for that.
