10. sanyi


Sanyi Camping Axe Outdoor Hatchet Chopping Axe 15inch for Wood Splitting and Kindling Camping Supplies Black

sanyi #ad - Sharp axe:the axe blade is thin, the steel head of the axe widens upward in a fan shape from the center. Please be careful. The edge of the blade is very sharp and may break the cover during transport. First of all, this will keep the axe in the best condition at all times.

In addition, it arrives fairly blunt and will require some sharpening before cutting through even small branches efficiently. Get into the habit of lightly sharpening the axe blade before or after use, keep your axe in a dry room so that the blade does not rust and the wooden handle does not rot. Conditions:this axe is good enough to tackle even small trees along with performing other small tasks like clearing trail, bushcraft or getting the wood ready for a campfire.

The axe is a small axe and it is not meant for cutting down big trees. Because of the small size it can easily be carried anywhere and get fit in the bag comfortably. This shape of the axe head allows it to easily split the firewood in half. It also comes with a leather cover to protect the blade. Universal one-handed axe:this camping axe has a relatively shorter handle measuring 14. 5 inches in length. So, it means business when splitting and chopping logs.
