Pretty sweet videos I found from woodworking tool maker John Neeman (he has a chef knife too!) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IPgESIYOVGI&feature=plcp

Production quality is excellent and I enjoyed it. Thought you guys might like it too.

Nice one! Enjoyable to watch. (Jeez, something tells me I have to buy a nice axe...)

Nice :) I've been interested in some Axe makers but have yet to really take the plunge and order one.

This is horrible! I just caught myself fondling some nice looking axes at Home Depot thinking, "Winter's coming soon enough...every guy should have a good axe...."

And, now you show me this!?!

Sorry, it's too late to edit my post.

I just watched the video again, and I wish I could do that. That was amazingly awesome to me.

And here I have a 3' across beech lying in the back yard, somehow I think I might stick to the chainsaw to clear that mess up. Just getting into woodworking, and I'm definitely gonna have to have a look around for some nice mortising chisels.

Nice video. Just checked out his website, the axes are not as expensive as I thought they might be. The butchers axe caught my eye :viking:. Thanks for sharing!

My favorite part, of all the cool parts, is probably his shop.

I love these new videos on smithies with the nice cinematography and everything.
