Removing a finish

I know this is a repeat question but I can't get the search box to stay open. It keeps disappearing as soon as I try to type. I want to remove the finish from crkt kangee axe and I would appreciate any suggestions.

If I was sure I wanted it removed, I'd try a blasting cabinet first, as that would be the simplest/easiest method.

Not knowing specifically what the coating is, it might require grinding/sanding. Removing a coating such as that via grinding/sanding can be very time and labor intensive.

Yeesh, its powder-coated so you're gonna have all sorts of fun getting down to the metal on that one. Most paint strippers won't touch it until you get to the commercial aircraft grade stuff if you want to go that route. Trying to sand or grind it off might work, but be prepared for it to take a while. Sandblasting would probably be the safest option, in regards to you health as well as the metal, but again be prepared for it to take some doing.

Personally, I'd get my hands on the strongest chemical stripper I could find, and take every safety precaution possible

If it's powder coated then the best way is to scrape it off. Any method you use will be tedious. Sandblasting doesn't work on powder coat well at all, it bounces off.
