    I was really surprised more competitors on KOD didn't run the course with purpose built, double sided blades.:confused: o_O

    The wavy handle is well thought out because when you flip your grip and you combine the leverage you'll be able to generate with a two handed grip + the slightly upswept tip >>> it will be very effective at busting open the sides of those crates of sand or anything else that needs breaching, I'd bet....almost like a pick ax.

    Put that blade in the hands of someone in peak conditioning....folks we not only have a KOD champion, but quite possibly a record setting KOD champ! :thumbsup:

    Sweet!


    P.S.
    When do we get the videos of Dan 1-hitting a 2x4 or 2x6?

    That’s unnecessary because it can cut through anything in one hit. Most things just fall apart in its presence out of fear of being struck by it.

    I could be wrong, but I think it's because it's double edged.

    The fuller is simply to reduce the heft of that massive blade.

    Yep.

    Seen Dr Dan 1-hit 2x4's (2x6's?) with the SA. Would love to see how this puppy chops.

    In the KoD thread, I'd mentioned that someone like Dan running the course with a Super Assassin, would be a hoot! The skill and eye-hand coordination of a champion competition chopper, without the size restrictions/limitations a competition chopper blade...

    This puppy would be even better. One edge for busting harder stuff (crates, ice blocks, gravel filled buckets/tubes etc.), and a razor edge for slicing through the soft stuff like the meat, rope, nylon straps, bottles etc.

    I totally agree with your shock and horror. Who wouldn't be offended by organic mango grapefruit seltzer water?
