    • You should put the ballistic jelly that is leftover to put on the wood to try to make it as close as a real leg. Tho I don't think the difference would be big.

  • That doesn't really happen but I guess if you have 0 depth perception it could happen and if that does happen you have squishy skim to dampen the hit I would know your leg isn't made of wood but interesting video

  • As a professional axe thrower, I would be interested to see this same concept, but with the axes being thrown at the pants w/ a board and ballistics behind them. Would the results be different if you threw a 14" hatchet one-handed vs. a 16" axe two-handed?

  • Full kudo to you Nate if i feel an axe strike deflecting or feeling wrong i dont usually follow through on the swing. I know it was done for testing wich is fair you need a standard swing for a fair test. On a side note as some one who has hit him self in the leg more than once and luckily one been bruised my trusty rain trousers are semingly axe proof with a realativly Sharp axe

  • I think it depends on how sharp both the axe and machette are. The sharper it is, the easier it'll cut through fabric, hence why most fabric scissors and blades used with fabric are really, really sharp. The base will matter as well because of give, but sharpness can make up for that give. Yes, this comment was made before finishing the whole video.
