Restoring axes. Learning from the past. Save something Old!
An axe is a time honored tool that can make an individual equal to the sometimes harsh conditions of our vast world. Many have ventured into the wild carrying a few supplies, a few rations, and one quality axe. Are you skilled in wielding an axe safely? Have you ever used an axe? If not, you are missing out on a rewarding connection that happens when you mix your strength with harvesting wood and trees. This activity strengthens your body, and also breeds respect of trees, a renewable and sustainable resource that, in wisdom, provides you and I with more fresh air to breathe. Humbling to think about.
If you are looking for an axe, there are many quality options out there. When cared for, a quality axe will last up to 100 years, maybe longer. However, there are many new "axes" sold today that are not quality, not crafted, not engineered. These are pieces of iron made to look like an axe, and produced merely for profit, not because they care about making a quality product, or because their name and reputation are on the line. These foreign factories don't care about quality, and it is evident in their lack of quality. Spend your hard earned money on a real axe made with quality, and maybe you'll pass it on to your grandchildren.
Some of the best quality axes were made in the past, and are only available used or rarely as New Old Stock. My goal is to find these quality used axes, repair and renew them, and get them back into use. I want to make using an axe rewarding for you.
