Taking out a dead standing pine with a Rinaldi 1300g "Trento" axe. [video=youtube;BCIsS8KV6nE]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BCIsS8KV6nE&feature=youtu.be[/video] At a few points it may appear as though the bit is sticking, but that's just me giving the handle a lateral wiggle to loosen the chips. I only stuck it once early in the video wile still warming up, and it's noted. Otherwise the bit's tremendous width combined with matching the force of the blow to the intended cut kept it from ever over-penetrating. Regarding the final count for chopping time, the moments of me looking around and sizing things up are deducted from the total, so it represents the actual time spent in the act of chopping.
