    I assume he has plans for making practice hatchets out of rubber and foam and stuff so you can do full contact sparring with them? Maybe something like the shock knife thing with a built in taser so you can feel the pain of hits?

    Also, how would one work the hatchet into Wing Chun forms?

    Your bog-standard one will do great for the rest of your life, then some.
    My tip ;
    make it SHARP, then use it SHARP, then after use
    SHARPEN it some more. Shave a curl off the surface of your thumbnail to test.
    You NEED an edge-protector or sheath or pouch for it.


    Or you could just make your own.

    The modern composite handles are very very tough, but I find they are mostly yellow or orange or flourescent lime-green, which should be banned. If you can buy a black handle, get it.

    Not good for chopping wood, but I bet you could bury this thing in someone's skull.

    Yes. It can be used for ice climbing as well as regular climbing and **** like spelunking too. I own a carbon fiber black diamond cobra. The carbon fiber shaft is the **** and having most of the weight in the head makes a nice balance swing.

    With all those extra features I suppose it would kill folks better than a normal hatchet

    The handles come in wild colors because people tend to set them down among dry leaves and never find them again. You'd be surprised how long it can take to find a knife or hatchet with "natural" grip materials, particularly when you really want to finish what you're doing and go relax in the sun.
