Are the Immortals... mortal?

It would appear so, for they have fled the battlefield twice recently.

The standoffs have not drawn Praetorian Guard blood... yet.

Who is scared of who these days?

Perhaps the God-King CAN bleed

Council Tool: Just Can't Get The Hang Of It

Boy's Axe, Broken Axe

3/28 - Quick update:  I received a new replacement axe from Zoro Tools, sharpened it up and went to work.  This one had no problems.  Hopefully my first axe was a rare holiday, and you won't end up with one yourself.  I had a great experience with Zoro though, and would recommend you to check them out.


Very disappointed.  Received my Council Tool's Boy's Axe in the mail the other day, just in time to chop up some firewood for "Polar Vortex 2.0" (yes, even reaches us in Houston).  Unfortunately, the tool lasted only halfway through my first cut.

It's a odd feeling swinging an axe which suddenly feels WAY too light.  It's also very odd wondering if that hunk of steel is going to land on your head or not.  Luckily, the head fell harmlessly at my feet.

My other impressions of the tool: probably good for limbing (didn't get the chance to try), but at 2.25# and 28", smaller than ideal for chopping through large logs.  Mine came with poor grain alignment on the handle as well.

This axe has made it's way into the ever growing pile of crap I bought that broke upon first use that needs to be sent/taken back/repaired.  I swear, it's hard to find anything that will last through it's first use these days.

If there is any bright light in the world of crappy craftsmanship, it would be Mr. Miller's III Arms Company.  Now THAT is some fine craftsmanship :)
