Chopper1 observations

chopping with Chopper 1

We've had the
Chopper1 in service for one complete firewood chopping season and I'm ready to declare it my all time favorite axe.

What I like most about this invention is the fact that it never gets stuck in a wedged sort of way that the old Super Splitter was prone to do. Not only did it take more energy to separate the maul from the wood but it breaks up your pace.

Sometimes the Chopper1 will bounce off a log, but that's only when I haven't applied enough force in my swing.
