    I injured my finger and thankfully I reacted well, and treated it. I thought I could see my bone at first maybe it is exposed.... anyways I was slicing/chopping up a thick pine branch with my "zulu spear" I just made (a little before I bruised my hand and bent up my new cutlass I made with a really bad hit) So I moved on to the spear and chopped a branch, but it and shrapnel from the hit impaled and took a lot of skin off of the joint. Just thought it was post worthy.

    Yeah thanks. Update: I actually hit it with my hand and got splinters at the same time took me a minute to figure that one out. Thankfully on my Father's side they have a really weird bone density which most likely saved my finger from breaking the way I hit the joint. And from all the weird things I've done that I could have broken bones doing I have never broken anything but a pinky toe or 2... (or 3 times I have really bad luck with my pinky toes)

    It wasn't the weapons fault. It was the wood's. I practically punched it.
     
  7. It's allways the other when the person could not work with his tools.
    Why don't you wear some gloves?

    It was more of inexperience than the need of gloves, I also hit a bit of a curve in the wood while trying a new slashing technique that is only possible with weapons like the Zulu spear. And thanks guys.

    I was just jabbing at a plank. And I felt like doing something stupid so I slashed at it... You're taking this too far Mr. Shultz. And It's really just using the length as an advantage and I had my hand too close to the impact point.

    Why? I read me through your Post´s and would find it only nice to see you in Action ;)
    By the length from a Spear of course you can strike very quickly, so I´am more interessted on your New Slashing Method and not on your Wound.

    I never said it was new. Just new to me. And I would probably just throw it at a zombie in my yard if anything ever happened and forget about it. I kind of stopped caring about the thing. It was just an expiriment. But sure I'll get some video of me with it. If I can find my camera.

    Do you believe on Zombies, Voodoo and this Stuff? :D
    How i said, I think an Axe is a very good choice when you want too smash some things.
    When you dont have seen it you should try this Link. There you can learn something about Axes.
    And it´s the same principle like a Hammer.

    Zombie preparedness is more of a friends and I hobby. And it's just an example. Hmmm, the Axe is a great weapon no doubt, but a swordsman with great skill will kill before. Have you seen Mr Thompson's technique with 2 bowies against a tomahawk!? He goes ape and stops the attack before they can even get to him. The Axe segment of conquest in my opinion was biased and didn't give the other weapons a REAL chance. Though it had a good point and I learned from it nonetheless. That's a flaw of people, we are biased.

    I've already commented on them... They were great learning pieces, though conquest is always a little biased... But a great learning experience nonetheless.

    Safety first!

    (Says the guy who just fished a piece of aluminum out of his eye 'cause he didn't wear safety glasses while grinding. :eek: )
