This point actually does it. I was chopping wood for the fire the other day, could not discover my axe. I attempted for fun this blade wich i own currently a half year or so, and customized the blade in to something i liked more, put bycicle tape on the grasp, as well as started slicing. To my surprise it was choppng better then my old little axe. It is really some knife. No batoning. just hack! I do not talk a half hour about a blade while holding it in my hands supposing just how it will certainly hold up. I just begin ramming it in to some product as well as see exactly what occurs.
