Some random comments on reddit about Swedish Marine Preparing an Amphibious Assault [1045x623]
- Thanks for the info. I always thought there were too few big choppy and slicy tools in modern soldiers' kits.
- The amph battalion also has a patch of a viking helmet on their arms, if you're interested
- Axes are powerful tools to have, so it makes sense they'd have one. I'd assume the double bladed one is just for shits and giggles.
- Double bit is for a couple of reasons. You can work longer because when one side gets dull, you spin 'er around and you have a fresh edge. Some people also use one side for clean work (cutting into wood only), and the other side for when they are striking near the ground, like at exposed roots, where you will dull the edge much quicker.

- Used to make me cringe sometimes how much damage we were doing to the edges of our MAX axes chipping holes in mud walled compounds for firing positions.

- I still have the brochure that came with ours (9 years later!), but I can't justify the $300 to buy one for myself.
- you get free shipping man, can't beat that!

- That's awesome. Like a whole wildland fire truck in one bag.
- Holy shit, this is the first I've heard of the "MAX" - just looked it up. It's awesome!
- I've been told people sometimes also have different edge geometry on either side suited for different tasks like heavy chopping vs. trimming the foliage from felled trees.
- You seem to know a lot about axes. What do you think of this axe? I've been thinking of getting it for when I go innawoods but was wondering if it would be better to just get something more traditional. http://www.leveraxe.com/en/
- I don't have any hands-on experience with that axe, but from the videos it seems like it would be really strange to go from a standard splitting maul to that. It would take some getting used to, but it does appear to be more efficient. I wish I knew someone nearby that had one, because I'd love to give it a swing! That said, for the price you can buy a half dozen quality standard splitting axes...
- Sweet, thanks for the info dude. I didn't know it was that relatively expensive. I'll have to do more research to see if it would last long enough to be worthwhile.
- also, wouldn't a double bit axe be easier to wield horizontally? If one edge is heavier than the other it would put more strain on the forearms.
- I personally find a single bit axe to be easier to handle due to the generally lower mass of the head. Less fatigue. Read more comments
