New Klecker Multitool Axe!
« on: May 31, 2014, 03:19:02 PM »
Just got this from my buddy Glenn Klecker, whom you may all know from Leatherman (designed the Skeletool), CRKT (designed the NIRK knife, wooden knife kit and others) or Crimson Trace.

Hi there,

Even if you are not into outdoor gadgets, you might know someone who is.  I invented an entirely new and unique multi-tool and I am launching it on kickstarter to get the word out.  Please check it out or share this with someone who likes any sort of outdoor activity.  If you share it through any sort of social  media please let me know and I will send you a pair of Trigger Knife Kits for free of any color just for helping out. 

Please check out my link...
https://www.kickstarter.c.../klax-its-more-than-an-ax

This tool will eventually be available on my website, but please go to kickstarter first and back my project.  I'm hoping to get the word out there quickly as I have only 30 days to fund my project.

Thanks for your time.

Kind Regards,
Glenn Klecker

Check it out- Glenn is a member here too, and you know we all look after our own!

Absolutely useless development. This is my personal opinion do not be offended. Who understands that works like an ax handle bracket will work very little. Much less time than the production of the handle of the branch. Ax handle itself is not so much weight to abandon conventional design. Several years ago, the designer came up with a similar design Skrylev. And all joking - go with the ax in Siberia ........

I really want to like the tool Grant
 

I just don't see it holding up
 

moving parts and a axe seems like a problem waiting to happen


sucks because he's a member and I want to help support him


I wish I could try one. It might be a great tool. I've been wrong before.

Of all the designs I actually like the look of the basic 'Feller' model.  Not sure if it would work, but if the splitting edge could be replaced with a saw I think it would be even better.  A nice regular channel strikes me as better than a split stick.  Could be wrong though. ;)

No, not the best chopping technique I've ever seen. :facepalm:  The axe does look like it holds up well though. :)

That cuts about as well as I guessed.  Or it could be her technique.  That's a 2-3 chop with a hatchet size tree with a proper hatchet, or one swing with a sharp axe.

+1.
With such a light axe head, there isnt much energy in each hit.
A good harchet with a little more weight to it, would drive the egde deep into the wood with each hit, felling it with a few chops.

Absolutely mate  :tu: She made that second one look particularly difficult  ::)

Now add into that the fact that you would need to make two cuts with no handle at all, on order to make yourself a handle, and then start doing whatever chopping was needed ....

Nah, I'll pass

Is it just me or does the pocket chainsaw look more practical than this? Except for splitting the wood...

Well I wouldn't judge its performance based on that video. She misses the tree half of the time. :whistle:

Maybe we should give one to sparky to test it out. We'd have to make it look rusty first though. >:D

I think the tool works well for what it is. If it had more weight it wouldn't be feasible to be a mutli. It did cut the tree and maybe her technique was off but it still did the job. If I had the funds I would get one.

Talking about that lever axe reminded me agian to look up the klax as I figured there must be more review info.



I counted 52 swings to take down a 2 inch sapling.  That's about what I expected.

The saw on a Vic soldier or trekker would have cut that sapling down with a lot less effort.

It must be blunt.  There's no other excuse for it taking than long and that much effort.  Did the reviewer actually seem happy with the results? :think:

I dont know but Ive seen Ed stafford take down a larger tree with a sharpened rock and a seashell faster.

A mora is faster too.

I don't think she has the best technique but I could watch her all day. I'd like to test one out   But to be honest I don't  think I would buy one.

Thing is; I'd rather carry a tomahawk than the Ketcher.  Keeping it on a handle isn't particularly heavy and is relatively simple to replace if it does get broken.

EXACTLY!  They are meant to fit a tapered shaft and a handle can be made on the go in a few minutes.  They pack up nice and small too.

Not sure it was technique or a blunt tool  :think:.  The dude in the mask seemed good with the results.  It sure is a lot of chopping for my tastes.  Neat idea for a portable chopping tool but the tomahawk is a much better option.

This guy at least looks like he's used an axe before, though he's putting a lot of arm in to make it work.



Not sure I agree with his conclusions nor that it'd be something I'd ever buy and carry, but at least it's not incompetent.

Woah, tough crowd huh.

I like it.

I mean, I like it for other people?

If you're not inclined to carry an axe normally - this and a Deluxe Tinker (or whatever you're into) could make a pretty decent kit.

Maybe for cycle-campers or riders who don't *expect* to use an axe, but want a tidy option if it becomes a necessity.

The imperial cuts outs are all but useless to me, and it doesn't offer a capability I don't already have, but that doesn't mean it's not a cool product  (I say all this without having looked at the price, if it's more than a day's pay, I'd probably revert my above comments to "expensive gimmick for survivor weirdos" - if it's accessibly priced, then I think it's cool)
