To fully appreciate the popularity of the Pine & Iron Axe Throwing Club, one must first grasp its history. The club dates back to the Middle Ages, when it became a favorite among gladiators who were competing in arena fights.
The name Iron Axe comes from the way it was created by nature – by banging two pieces of wood together to create a flaring spike that tore at the flesh of animals and men alike. The two pieces of wood would have been crafted of a different material. Usually wood from a tree was used as well as stone.
The clay javelin from which the axe was fashioned came from southwestern Europe. Iron was forged into a spear head, while the wood was cracked apart in order to open up the pores in the wood. Even though the tool looked like a hammer head, the tool actually had more points than you would see on a hammer head.
It has been said that iron is not naturally occurring, and so there had to be other metals used for the iron to be formed. This made the use of an axe and spear similar to the use of a pike.
The Spanish conquistadors brought the iron axe with them to America. It soon spread across the continent, and eventually the United States where it became an important weapon during the Battle of New Orleans. At that time the axe was called the iron sword, and its impact on the battlefield can still be seen today.
During its early years, the axe needed no maintenance. However, after some time the axe became chipped iron became rusted, and no one seemed to know what to do about it. It was finally discovered that the rust began to grow at the center of the axe, near the point, and that the coldness of the ice would cause it to crack.
The trend to preserve the iron until it becomes rust-free took hold, but the problem was that it didn’t happen all at once. Instead, there were steps to take as the cracks grew and the rusty iron began to gather dirt and grime. Eventually, the axe became lost to its maker.
It was during the 1800s that the iron axe came back into fashion. There was an iron manufacturing company that wanted to get the axe back into circulation. They figured if they could make another one that it would give them another chance to find the owner of the axe. The company was able to buy the axe from the original owner and produced a replica of the axe that it was like.
The axe was supposed to look like the original axe that it’s a character of its creator. It was to look exactly like the axe was meant to look. If it resembled the original, it was supposed to be like the original, and if it did not resemble the original, it was supposed to be as close to the original as possible.
The axe remained in production through the 20th century. While many people believed that the axe was too impractical to really work, the axe was still popular enough to have been represented in motion pictures. It was used in films that starred Gene Kelly, Jackie Gleason, Claudette Colbert, Gregory Peck, Boris Karloff, Errol Flynn, and others.
The wooden javelin was also quite popular, even though it did not include the iron spikes that the axe was made of. It is believed that it was the popularity of the wooden javelin that made the axe popular. As the popularity grew, so did the price of the iron axe, and the axe became the preferred choice.
The popularity of the axe and the pine javelin is evident in the clubs that are available today. There are plenty of clubs to choose from, from a basic club to one that has a hidden cutting edge. You can even choose a club that has a leather sleeve to hide the iron spikes, giving it a more authentic appearance.
