  • hello

    Hello, My name is David I am an expat from USA. I am also a recoverering "gun wacko" who is now looking for a new direction for my obesessive compulsive behavior.
    This new edge fascintion started with me looking for a hatchet. I found something I had never heard of a "chopper". With investagation I found myself learning of different metals, heat tratments and grinds.
    I am now about 2 months into to this and have plans for about 6 or 7 knives. A few days ago I bought a EESE 5. It took me a few weeks to choose between the ESEE 5 and a Becker BK2. The next knife will probably be a large blade, 9+. I bet that might also take I ramblaling.
    My kids dont know and my wife dont care. It is good to have a forum with like minded people. See ya around, David

      Welcome to the forum.
      Quantum physics is a bit of a passion of mine. It's extraordinary. There's a branch of mathematics that is based on lunacy, and that's wonderful.

                  Welcome to the forum David.

                  If you're looking for a large 10" chopper, you really can't go past Competition Choppers (made for and approved by Blade Sport International). These are specifically made to chop through 4"x2" as well as hanging rope, cut the tops of "bendy straws" etc and do it all again without any damage or fatigue. Browning makes a very good, economical example at about $160 (Urban Conquest has one in stock) or if you really want something special, get one of our competitors/makers to make you one in CPM M4 - you won't regret it!
