A while ago I posted about the cover that I have designed for protecting your axe, and also everything else that may come into contact with the sharp edge. These covers have proven to be very popular with axe owners. You dont have to be a professional tree feller to have one, every axe owner should protect the hard earned cutting edges of their firewood getters.
Because, sharp is what axes should be to do what they are designed for. A blunt axe not only is a danger to its user, but because of its ineffectiveness soon becomes a burden to use- tapping energy that should be put to better use.
Therefore it goes without saying that any axe that see use from time to time, should have a sharpening stone, hone or puck, somewhere to maintain a keen edge. Axe sharpening stones are usually round, about 75mm across and about 25mm thick. Enter the sharpening stone pouch.
Made from the same durable belting leather than the axe pouch and using synthetic braid, hand stitched seams, this pouch is ideal to protect your stone, whether it is lying on the back of the truck, bouncing around inside a toolbox or sitting on the shelf in the shed. It is also fitted with a belt loop to be carried on your person for those trips out bush. A closing flap will prevent the stone from falling out. Retrieving even a tight fitting stone is made easy by pulling on a leather strap to lift the stone out of the pouch.
These handy pouches will set you back only 22.00 Australian, plus postage.
