    well, it was a drinking party originally with fun and games ( no lectures please :) ) , but a friend saw the maul in the corner of my shed and well......... it turned into a macho man competition!

    It appears that it is a Monster Maul which would make it even more macho. I can't even lift one of those suckers anymore.

    Cool! I figured it was an event like you said in second post. Who splits at night? (actually, I do when I'm having a dispute with wife). Well, at least you'll share some of the labor.

    Hey guys, watch this! Hell, even the photographer's safety was in jeopardy. Glad I wasn't there. Maybe 30 or 40 years ago, but not anymore. Rick

    'Course I'm wondering if this wood mauling party was fueled by an excessive amount of alcoholic beverages if . . .

    a) the maul came up missing the next morning, but was eventually found embedded 20 feet up in a nearby pine tree or

    b) the guys split up 2 cords of wood within an hour or so . . . but promptly burned up 1.78 cords of that wood by dumping it on to the nearby bon fire.

    :) ;)

    actually Jake ,

    its gonna be a 2 part answer.

    yes, excessive drinking led to increased conceived bicep size and wood blasting abilities.

    yes, the stubborn knot pieces ended up in the inferno where all the sane party-goers were at . it was a shame to throw good oak in there.... but they had to be punished ! :)

    I don't let anyone stand within 30 ft. of me when I'm using Thumper (monster maul clone) ... or any other ax, maul, or sledge. I've had Thumper, and the super-splitter maul, slip out of my hands and fly (past my knees by inches). That could do some serious damage.

    Peace,
