You like the whistling sound it makes when you swing it AND working in the rain?

I must say you Carpathian mountain folk are interesting, stick around tell us more.

Folk in California (USA) could sure use the trick, they've been under a severe drought for 4 years now. Will it work for Americans? We'll pass the design on if you'll tell us how to make and use it correctly.

The forging is excellent.  The rain starter is a great bit of culture.

It reminds me of the "nib" on the end of saws in that it's got a lot of theories for it's existence, but little proof.  It becomes important to later generations who's curiosity is aroused by what they don't know.
