Few years ago we showed you the Leveraxe, a Finnish design twist on an axe head that makes splitting firewood easier:
Well, turns out that idea wasn't new, even if the execution was. An American dude named Bob Kolonia invented the Chopper1 Axe way back in 1975, and it sold like hotcakes.
The way that it works is interesting:
According to the company, Kolonia decided to wind the company down in 1989. But in recent years people have been asking him to start selling the axe again.
"At first he resisted, but realized that with the internet, he could sell the Chopper1 Axe directly to the consumer," the company writes. I guess sometimes you just have to axe nicely.
"you just have to AXE nicely!!!!" oooooooOOOOH! comedy GOLD! Love it!
I’m a lapsed industrial designer. I was born in NYC and figured I’d die there, but a few years ago I abandoned New York to live on a farm in the countryside with my wife. We have six dogs.
