I'm pleased with my new axe. Splits logs in one swoooop! (Probably splits feet too, so I'd better watch out.)
The woman in the shop insisted I have a plastic bag over the axe head as "it's an offensive weapon and you might meet a policeman". Ha - that didn't save Harry Stanley, carrying a chair leg in a plastic bag.
Now all I need is a tree stump or something to chop logs on. I seem to come across them all the time until the day I actually want one!
