Strategic placement of wood is something that the Mitchells have always done well. The Seneca uses lighter wood like basswood or cedar where wear isn't an issue, but has ash or other hardwoods in high wear areas. The Seneca tips the scale at 24 ounces. The blade is more squared off at the bottom for a big bite of water, but the dihedral in the blade means almost no flutter. Its thin blade makes for a quiet recovery in or out of the water. The top grip is a modified t-grip, which gives you control in moving water and is still comfortable in the palm padding calm water.
Screw Hollywood: It's not apes that humans should feel threatened by, it's octopuses. We've already covered their amazing camouflage and their deadly poisons -- what we haven't told you is that they're also one of the most intelligent animals in the world . They've been observed using tools and solving complex problems. They can move across land and can pour their bodies through the tiniest holes and crevices because they have no goddamn bones.

Suddenly, there's something just a little less innocent about the tied up woman on the wall wearing 2/3 of a skirt.
