Is the third Divergent movie actually a child snuff film? No, but not, apparently, for lack of trying.
Look, I get getting angry if your cab didn't get you where you wanted, but this is a little extreme, no?
In a survival situation, with enough determination you could probably chop down an entire tree with the Leatherman multi-tool on your belt. But the effort required would certainly leave you exhausted and unable to fight off bears. That's why the Klax multi-tool seems like such a better solution, as it can turn almost…
They say if you build a better mouse trap the world will beat a path to your door. But if you live in the woods, and come up with an ingenious way to improve something as simple as an axe head, the world will be able to clear cut a path to your door. Because cutting down trees and turning them into cords of firewood…
The forest isn't just going to lay down and stack itself into timber piles because you asked nicely. You'll need to fell, chop, and hew it into submission. Here are the tools to do it.
With a brilliant design incorporating two axes, Köln International School of Design students Yanik Balzer and Max Kuwertz have created a shelf that makes installation an absolute breeze. You just need to find an open space on your wall, wind up, and hope that at least one side of the axe heads makes contact with a…
Backpacking gear was my original obsession with technology. For even the most minor update to my kit, I read dozens of reviews, talk to my expert comrades, and then finally try it out myself.
Aside from a few innovations in materials, axe design has been something that's gone relatively unchanged for awhile now. But a new concept, dubbed the Zai Core, from designer Kacper Hamilton, which makes use of carbon fiber in the handle and a series of interchangable carbon steel blades, breathes new life into an…
A few years ago Zippo decided to expand its product offerings so the company's wares appealed to more than just smokers, arsonists, and action movie heros.

In the event everyone starts turning into zombies and eating each other's faces off (looking at you, Florida), this Tactical Tomahawk axe is the kinda tool you'd want to have.
The best feature of this seemingly indestructible fiberglass-handled hatchet isn't that you can repeatedly drive a tractor over it without snapping the handle. No, it's that the axe can be used by anyone with $30 to spare—unlike Thor's hammer which can only be wielded by the mythical hero of Norse legend.
Maurice Sendak was important to us here at Gizmodo: His stories inspired us to follow our own internal compasses when our parents told us to stop wasting our time skateboarding or making movies or playing with gadgets. In an unhappy coincidence, we visited Best Made Co.'s New York City workshop on the day of Sendak's…
An axe used to be a tool fundamental to human survival. Today, I'm just as likely to be felling trees as felling zombies. I've decided to turn to sport to tap my inner woodsman with this vicious throwing axe.
Canadian Maskull Lasserre's woodwork is miles from the kind of whittling woodwork that takes place down in Alabama in a rickety old rocking chair. For one, each piece is incredibly intricate, and extremely macabre, with skulls popping out of furniture and axe handles carved into skeletons.
Apparently Russia has a slight problem with some crazy-skinhead running around town with an axe, hacking into ATMs. Evidence of his second destruction was caught on CCTV by the ATM, which sadly didn't fare too well:
Let's say you really, really need to rob a bank, like in under four minutes. But there's all this pesky bulletproof glass between you and the terrified tellers! If you can relate, take a tip from this industrious Chinese bank robber, who understands that "bulletproof" glass doesn't mean you can't axe the bejeezus…
This morning, we decided we think axes are awesome. Beautiful, functionally perfected, and, yes, great for elegantly chopping the crap out of things. Below, a roundup of our favorite old school cutting contraptions.
You could get the budding lumberjack in your life an axe for the holidays, but what's the fun in that? If he's going to chop down his own Christmas tree, he should do it with an axe he made himself.
