    I received it from Jason at Blade Show for Knife Rights when he donated it so I know it "wants" to chop.

    I've also known Jason since before Forged In Fire so it wasn't too challenging for me to pick it.

    And here it is.

    I need to take it out and test it on some wrist sized limbs or saplings in the woods.

    Hmmm, that will be challenging since I'd have to set up a camera to catch the chopping. No sane way to do it with the phone in hand.

    Thanks, but I have professional camera tripods already. I'm just not interested in putting the effort in it. I'll be happy to report on the performance, but not set up a tripod and record it and then post it since THR doesn't host vide0. Might be fun for y'all to see, but not for me to do.
