An opportunity to put the axe Silky Ono against pig trotters presented itself recently when a pacific islander friend Sa wanted to cook a traditional dish. Typically, the butcher would use a band saw like machine to saw the pig trotters into smaller pieces. Sa told me he got the trotters cheap but they came in large pieces. Told him he can use my axe for the job. The axe has not seen much usage since I got it anyway.
Yup…I finally scored a Japanese Silky Ono axe/ hatchet. I have no clue why all of a sudden, axes and hatchets appeals to me so much. Perhaps because I am longing for that ‘bushcraft’ tool that I have been reading and watching on all the bushcraft shows on Youtube. This is not my first axe. Tried the Mora Outdoor axe and several others before. Here are some pictures.
