*Drool*... ugh.. sooooo awesome. It arrived less than a week after ordering (in flawless condition), and I promptly destroyed some pallets with a vengeance. The spike actually snapped a treated 4x4 in half with one good swing! I swear to god it was the coolest thing ever. Perfect zombie killer -- you could puncture an engine block with this thing. The only downside is that the handle on it is much lighter (unfinished) than in the picture, but some tongue oil will fix that right up. Can't wait til the wife leaves again so I can find more useless crap to destroy. Well done windlass!
