    Apparently Erdogan is saying that he'll block Finland and Sweden from joining. Even NATO is infected with right-wing authoritarian Putin-sucking retards. I think the Globalists will either change his mind or give him the boot.


    Last I heard, Turkey is likely going to leverage this situation to get their hands on new JSF's. Or at least the ability to purchase some.

    So far..... it looks like the one with the sorta blunt wedge head is about right.... I would want a straight round hardwood handle with possibly wound rawhide grip on the last 6" or so.

    One like this?

    Straight handle, though. Leather wraps around the bottom. I've got ideas, but I think I want to forge a new, and different drift. More rounded.

    Tomahawk is a fearsome weapon. Back when guns were single shots they were almost mandatory along with a very large knife.


    I bet one would go well with my Arkansas toothpick.

    I just bought some new hammer heads. I'll try forging at least one out like Finger wanted. Is there another design you want?

    I have a few hammer heads here, but my fear is that they are too large for you to pound out by hand.


    The first ~32oz ballpeen hammer I forged out was rough. But once I figured out the trick and the process, it wasn't so bad. Probably knocked off 50% of the time to make an even better finished head.

    Holy fucking shit, what did I just watch?



    Spontaneous, on Prime. This is possibly the darkest movie I've ever seen. It's a light hearted teenage comedy romance movie where the members of the senior class begin exploding one by one. And not funny explosions. Blood and guts spraying on the ceiling, explosions.


    It jumps back and forth between fun comedy to existential dread. It does have several anti-conservative diatribes / jokes which really come out of nowhere, and for no reason.



    But I actually liked the movie.

    The Bible, itself, contains enough examples of how wrong religion can turn. History after the Bible also shows how wrong religion can go. Even religion is a battle against human nature. It is not immune from it. It cannot rise above it. It suffers along with our nature... as does everything. Of course, it also does good and inspires, as can our nature.


    Priests and clergy can go wrong. Religion, not so much. But that's besides the point, and my main point still stands.


    (I'm not a member of any religion myself. Definitely not an atheist, either.)

    I look at the world and I don't think, "it all happened by chance". The ecosystems, the life, the intricacy as well as the balance. It just does not scream chance. The body of any mammal is too prime of an example to ignore.


    Religion, OTH... Religion is often a reflection of the weakness of mankind when grouped around like minded folk. The usual power struggles down to petty competition to who can be the best at whatever the belief of the day is. All of the pitfalls of religion I also seen in any ism. Wokism is a prime example on every level.


    Religion is one of the most time-proven things to give the average person purpose. You only need to look at the shambling hoards of atheist democrats to see what a purposeless group of people is capable of.

    Reforged #3 (middle) today when I heat treated my axe heads.


    Here are the 2 other heads before heat treat:


    "Hatchet" heads #'s 4, 3, and 5 (in that order).

    5 came out the best. It took a lot of experimenting, but I'm getting better at forging a longer edge on the head.
