    That would be the exact ax I own, as a matter of fact.

    I wasn't serious, I wouldn't buy one of these things.

    I'm not sure (outside of a zombie apocalypse) where something like that would be useful. Some things like war hammers were left in the dust of history for good reason. Yet if somebody thinks they can make a buck on novelty they'll jump on it.

    Maybe it would be good for cracking walnuts while we wait around for metal armor to come back into use.

    Have you seen a large percentage of knives being sold nowadays? I would say novelty is alive and well. We're just not the folks looking for it.

    I will carry an extra loaded magazine and my knife for equal weight.

    They have one by SOG for twenty. Looks similar but maybe a little smaller.

    I sometimes wonder, with people buying this kind of stuff what kinds of strangeness will appear if the SHTF.

    I like the Estwing's. I have a Estwing hatched in my camp gear, an 18" Estwing in the Jeep for clearing limbs and small trees that are a bit too large to drive over.

    Of course after the attack on four policemen in NY city by an Estwing wielding psycho. Owning an Estwing might make you a person of interest with the alphabet agencies.

    Save your money, and make your own.

    I put one together with black iron pipe from the local hardware store.
    A few reducers, a few caps, a T-joint and a handle... viola!

    It's just light enough to use with one hand, and can easily deliver a blow similar to the one in this video.
    Also, it can be disassembled and reassembled to avoid suspicion.

    I'm thinking of taking the end cap off the handle and filling it with sand to add weight.
    I'm confident it would bust a 2x4 to splinters with one strike.

    I prefer to carry a .45, but that's just me.

    Obviously it's meant to be used for wallboard demolition. It looks like it will handle any thickness up to an inch. With that spike you might get away with using it as a log splitting wedge, but I'd have to have one in hand before I'd certify it.

    Or maybe if you were crazy enough to let a bear get close to use it?
    I wouldn't want to be part of any organization that would allow me to be a member.
