Would this axe chop space wood better?
>>149234955It's design to more efficiently throw out your back.
>implying Simple machines can/will ever be obsoleteThis joke or meme that a simple machine (Ex: Lever, Wheel and axle, Pulley, Inclined plane,Wedge, Screw) can ever be obsolete is retarded. So is pretending not to understand this, can we stop forcing this retarded shit already? It's bane tier.
>>149234955i see you are admiring my handy work
>>149234955Hey what's the movie again
>>149235212>Why is the axe curved, Damon?>if I told you it would ruin the mystery>also I don't know
>>149234955Why was it curved?To stand out, to be memorable. It makes the item special even if it’s impractical. This was the reason it was made this way. That’s it.
>>149235159I think the joke is that it's bent the wrong way to look futuristic, and that's silly.
>>149235512axes should never have a straight handle. you've been misled
>>149235512so you can chop aliens from around the corner
>>149235159>a fire axe on a ship that was designed without wood and most likely meta materials
>>149235255Alien Episode 1: The Phantom Menace
>>149235512I don't think it's impractical though. Kukris are curved the same way and they're damn good choppers. I'm not an expert on this subject but I think the same principles would apply with the axe.
>>149235558A two handed axe should have a straight or slightly curved handle. They usually curve backwards, not forwards.
>>149235258An axe is a type of wedge, yes.
>>149235690Not the handle retard
>>149235739Yeah curving forwards is dumb, you get less swing than you would with a straight handle.
>>149235739in my limited experience they usually curve both ways, but yes it is slight. Though I've seen people camping with new plastic looking ones with exaggerated bends, not sure if that is only for show or what.
>>149235742If I curved it would it work?
>>149235922It would be extremely painful.
>>149235690The blade of the kukri is bent, not the handle. Swinging an axe is nothing like swinging any sort of light weight mid sized blade like a machete or kukri
>>149235967It's a big axe
>>149235922It would be extremely impractical

>>149234955Has anyone in this thread actually split wood with an axe
>>149235255The Battle for Axe Mountain
>>149236288I used to until my dad got a wood splitter
>>149235690>I think the same principles would apply with the axe.they would notthe kukri blade is curved to encourage things to travel along it on impact from any angle, and thus be sliced. Like a sickle or scythe.curving the handle of the axe does not accomplish this
>>149236288I split your mom's axe with my wood if you know what I mean.
>>149236288literally half an hour ago mate
>>149236288yeah my grandfather made me split logs every winter, made a man of me. you only use the axe to start the log, then you use a wedge and sledge.
>>149236288Yeah of course. I'm not a bushcraft expert but my technique is solid and I've never come anywhere close to injuring myself with an axe or hatchet because of that. I dont see what advantage or disadvantage such an axe handle would provide either way.
>>149236027Bravo anon bravo
>>149234955If the lumber was at the height of your head, it might be more mechanically efficient then
>>149234955>emergency axes are for woodare you dense? are you fucking retarded?
F2 = F1+(M/d)The curve does nothing
>>149235159>It's bane tierThats the most popular /tv/ meme of all time you fucking newfag. KYS on the way out
>>149235159Like a screwdriver? For taking screws out of wall panels?
Wacky Axe thread?
little do they know the woodchop is how you unlock trve chadmode
>>149235255Gimli's excellent adventure
>>149236288me everyday, and I find that axe fucking stupid, you could fuck up your wrists with that design
>>149236380HA HA THIS ANON IS SAYING HE HAD INTERCOURSE WITH YOUR MOTHER HA HA
>hes never used a curved space axe to split space wood withfucking kids these days
>>149235159>simple machinesSee my space shotgun? It's a simple machine. but it looks 10x cooler. There's no reason we can't have form AND function in outer space.
>>149235690They tried to mimic this design t. Casual ice climber enthusiast
>>149238913i dont think theres anything simple about a shotgun with wires sticking out of it
>>149234955It's a design to break glass in an emergency situation, not chopping wood
>>149235601That sounds like one of those chinese ripoff NES games
>>149238971Yeah ok. Trying shooting at someone without all the wires and heartbeat sensor on top. You'd have to be at close range and aim for center mass for any stopping power without all of it. It's the 21st century, Amishbro
>>149234955Yeah it probably would. It is a good thing they have one on board. Because when your electronic laser you're using to cut wood runs out of power or malfunctions you need to rely on physical manual basic tools that won't fail because of water damage
>>149236288yeah, for the really hard to split ones we'd have to get the axe stuck then use a sledgehammer to drive it through to split it, now we have a proper wood splitter and can stock up for winter in like a week
>>149238967and where do you think THAT design came from?
>>149239225how does the curve enhance its ability to chop glass
>>149239538this guy isn't getting it
>>149239538The curve is there to make it look futuristic. That's the answer. But as far as practical things go, you may need to chop through conduit at some point in an emergency on a spaceship with artificial gravity. In this case we can guess that the axe is insulated and can handle X amounts of volts safely. But if the conduit touches the handle and not the head of the axe, then maybe the resistance of the axe isnt enough and the user is shocked. So they design the axe handle to help avoid contact with what's being chopped at.
>>149234955Would this axe chop wood better?
>>149239225Why would you need an axe for breaking glass?
>>149236288i spit mad logs especially when i've been drinking the night before
>>149235255Fry, Let Me Axe You a Question
>>149242696why is that? doing manuallabor hungover suck dickshaft
>>149242583You can slice alien balls and brake glass without switching tool between
>>149236288Does everyone ITT live in the woods or are they just larping
>>149239814Mind if I save this image?
>>149236288Only try hard fags split with axe. If you really live in cold place you buy wood splitter machine.
>>149239814Based banana poster
>>149243970I have a fire pit barbacue type thing every so often I'll have a fire and cook on it, I don't live in the woods or anywhere remotely cold
>>149243804but then pic rel would be a superior tool
>>149235255Broke back mountain
>>149234955Would this axe chop space wood better?
you're all retarded and i am smart.it's curved so it impacts sooner.look where the blade is, then look at where it would be if it were straight.it's better ergonomics and yes safer breaking glass because your hands are further away.
>>149243970I grew up in the woods. I don't recommend it.
>>149244031wood splitters are slow as shit and require you to bend over to place every piece. the golf swing ground splitting technique is superior.
>>149236288Lol yeah and i watch sport before i post on /sp/ pfft lol
anyone else ever noticed how there's carpenter hatchets hanging on the wall in the escape shuttle in the first alien movie? it's always bothered me, why would you need a woodworking tool on a futuristic space ship?
>>1492380952nd most. Sneed is the most popular.
>>149236288Everytime that I go out looking for wood
>>149245087Yeah why would you need a basic foolproof tool with a variety of maintenance/ survival applications in an escape craft?
