Family come visiting bearing a most amazing Christmas present – a Vipukirves Leveraxe.
Rather late as it had traveled slowly overland from Finland
“The function of the axe is based on the blade’s one-sided design. When the blade strikes a log, it begins to incline, creating torque, which multiplies the splitting force and enables the blade to detach the log wood. Kinetic energy ends on top of the log so the blade will not slip.” – that’s science that is.
