    The cross-bladed axe is the brainchild of Instructables user KH4 and can cut a log into four pieces with a single swing. For reference, that is twice as many pieces as a regular axe can. Of course it probably takes more power to drive a cross-bladed axe, but I'm practically m... / Continue →

    This is the 13-inch Kniper, a $75 throwing knife multi-tool designed by Urchin Sky. You can throw it at things, or use one of the other twenty-two tools, including a tobacco pipe. I'm going to throw it at my toes to teach them a lesson about always stubbing themselves on the ... / Continue →

    The Bark Knight, get it? Because trees have bark on them. Growing up in Alabama we called that tree-skin. This is the carved wood Batman sculpture created by artist Thomas Earing, who, based on his name, I'm surprised doesn't dabble in jewelry instead. The Batman carving s... / Continue →

    This is a video of master carver David Warther showing us how to make a pair of wooden pliers out of a small block of wood with only ten cuts. He came up with the design himself through trial and error. Still, watching him work that knife so close to his thumb made me nervous... / Continue →
