    I feel that way every time I see the guy at the Chinese restaurant lift up his Chinese cleaver to his eyes' height and slams it down on the duck/pig/chicken less than an inch away from his fingers... three times a second...
    To think those guys most likely aren't even into blades as we are here but are still able to pull this stuff off!

    Now they need to go bigger and have the world's fastest game of Russian Roulette.

    They even make a point of saying that nobody was hurt as if they were shocked by that fact.:rolleyes:

    That is pretty hard to watch.

    OTOH, there are a lot of people that develop skills to the point of having a comfort level way past the personal lines we draw. The print I have of the iron workers springs to mind.

    I watched it a couple of times to try and make out the axe.. Looks like one of the japanese axes thats made similar to the roselli axes , just a bit larger and heavier ..

    Doubt I'd try that myself.. Never been in that big of a hurry splitting wood....lol

    Either:
    A. I SUCK as splitting wood, or
    B. the wood around here is a lot harder to split than what I see in that clip.

    My bet is the correct answer is equal parts of A and B.

    You also probably don't use an axe that heavy. Looks to me like the axe is in the 6-10 pound range.

    wow, that makes me look like a boy scout with my machete. Holy cow. I like how he moves his thumb out of the way though.

    That wood doesn't look to be much longer than 13" and it's probably a soft wood. I'd like to see him do that with some of our 22" Hickory firewood or better yet, Elm, then I'll be impressed! ;)

    lol that was wild. I have to agree I have never been in such a hurry to split wood that quick. and that was definitely all soft wood with no knots in it. either way they are very skilled folks and have bigger balls than me lol (I probably have more fingers though :)

    Reminds me of the lumber jack competitions when the guys are standing on the log and chopping an inch or two from their feet...:eek:
