You can soak the head of the handle in antifreeze to keep it tight when it wears in. The antifreeze will soak in and it won't evaporate out leaving the wood a bit swollen

Sooo do other countries not have hickory or equivalent material? Or is American Hickory simply marketing lingo? I would think Swedish and Germans Axe makers would have their own native handle material...

Very beautiful axe and indeed, it has "German" all over it, probably down to its molecular level.

I ordered one 8 years ago. Fell one 16" persimmon tree for a real test, and really enjoyed it. The laquer coat and bulk of the handle were my only qualms, we know those are easily fixed. Some vagrant lifted it off my side porch in the middle of the night... *Course they make multiple sizes, I had the 28" equivalent as they are metric

Sling it up if you can, I've had two surgery's one on each shoulder. Can be a minor tear and heal after a bit if you take it easy or it could be larger like mine and need surgery or just live with it. My first one was when I was 24 so it was kind of hard to not deal with plus it happen at work. Other one just happen same time and got worse.

I’m only 14 and when I was around 10-11 I messed up both of my shoulders by falling down a steep hill and slamming up against a rock. It’s been about 4 years since and my shoulders are still stiff and kills me trying to do something like picking up heavy things. All the doctor did was take me to therapy which only made my back hurt less (I have horrible posture so it’s my fault) but it actually didn’t help.

I would like to see that designed used to support different heads, like instead of it just being an axe, you can take off the head and add a bush axe head, or a more dedicated splitting maul head.

That's a Paul Bunyon axe right there. I pray God will heal your shoulder. Piece of cake for Him. Jesus went around healing people all the time. Just ask Him to fix it. No need to spend money for a quack doctor. The first thing they'll do is try to get you hooked on painkillers.

Thanks for heeding our calls to get an MRI. You’ll be super glad you did. As someone who has experienced major shoulder issues i find it much more pertinent to diagnose the issue than to treat first and then figure out if that’s working. For now don’t sleep on it and take it easy, but a sling isn’t necessary just yet. Thanks for putting out good content!

I love our Council belt axe and the Council Hudson axe. As far as a splitting maul I break the handles so much since I'm lazy and leave it out on the wood pile I just use any maul at the nearest ACE or Home Depot as long as its says USA. Good luck with the shoulder.

Too bad they didn't make the head & the C-channel out of one piece (i.e. cut the channel out of the back/poll of the head); then that transition point wouldn't exist.

Before you allow them to cut you open.... Check with a Chiropractor. We thought mine was torn. Went to my Chiro and he stood behind me lifting up below my elbow. Pop. It was back in. I over extended my arm closing a roll up door down. You can do same by putting elbow on a table and dropping your shoulder. A Chiropractor might be best 1st. Hate surgery. Avoid if you can.

I would very much like to see you put that axe to the test. I was considering purchasing that same axe and the smaller felling axe from the same line they have. Very curious to see if that crazy design will hold up to some good work. Hope everything gets better with your shoulder. Long time fan here, never really commented on a video but i always leave a like. Keep up the content I love it.

One thing I’ve done to an axe handle I didn’t exactly trust to sit well is to melt hot glue into its edges. Hot glue melts at about a hundred degrees Celsius, which isn’t enough to destroy the metal or the wood. So you can have some hot glue on the edges, then use a hot air gun to melt it further into the edge. And if you want it loose, you can just melt it again. I haven’t used the axe a lot, so no guarantees, but it seems to hold up well so far.

Ive owned a couple of the Helko Werk Vario 2000 series axes for a few years now and can say they are amazing! I have the heavy splitter and have put it threw the gauntlet many a times. All I do is split by hand and it has stood up to some nasty stuff! The head will loosen over time but a few cranks with the Allen wrench and it’s locked right back up no big deal. My only complaint is last year I did end up snapping one of the Allen screws off which was upsetting but after a few years of heavy abuse I guess I can’t complain. Customer service was fast and kind I had the replacement bolts in a few days time. I would suggest to grab a few extras ahead of time if you plan to use it has your main splitter to avoid down time but other than that excellent axe with a unique and pleasantly curved handle that pops large rounds with ease👍 When your back up and running please do a review. I would like to see your qualified take on it!!

Imagine if the handle was made of polycarbonate. It would never warp, break, or change. I know you don't like plastic handles, but in a utilitarian context it would work

Hi Cody, Helko axes are widely used here in Chile, but I don't think that model is currently for sale here. It is NOT a splitting maul, but I think it's a Heavy Vario 2000 Felling axe. The splitting maul is even chunkier than that one. Fun fact: that guard, is not part of the axe head itself. It gets sandwiched in place between the handle and the head using the two screws. (Personally I don't like the system). Supposedly, you can interchange the head to make it whatever you want, from a hatchet to a heavy splitter. Helko makes 5 different blades for the system. If you can get your hands on a Casco Axe, also made by Helko Werks, you'll get a REALLY RUSTIC, old fashioned german axe, that can last you a lifetime. The eyes in those things are HUGE, so you can fit a pretty heavy handle in them. Best regards!!
