I have to say that getting attacked by an ax or stabbed with a knife has to be one of the worst ways to be attacked. I don't know about you, but I think I would rather be shot than stabbed or whacked with an ax. Maybe I've watched too many scary movies.

Things to Use an Ax For

When I think of using an ax, what comes to mind is cutting down a small tree that may be dead or just needs to be removed. I have never been in a situation where when I had an ax where my life was threatened and I felt I needed to defend myself with it. I have split my share of wood back in the day with an ax but never thought it would be used for anything else other than cutting wood.

Firemen often have to use an ax to get into locked doors in a burning building. Not sure any firemen have had to use their ax for anything else but that's a whole other research project.

Ax throwing is another use for an ax. There are even bars right here in West Michigan that have ax throwing. Hopefully, no one has had a few too many and reached for one during a bar fight.

Two guys were out walking and saw a man near a shack in the woods. When they approached him he punched one of the guys in the face and kept beating the man. The other guy tried to help out his buddy and that is when the aggressor went into the shack and pulled out an ax and began to take some swings at the two men.
