Get in the swing of things with these handcrafted axes

Now this really will surprise your loved one when they find it in their Christmas stocking. “An axe! Darling, it’s just what I’ve always wanted…” But hold back on the cynicism, because these aren’t just any old axes…

Best Made Company of New York City offers handcrafted Japanese axes, American felling axes and how could we overlook the Hudson Bay axe? Best of all are the axes with the hand-painted handles, each inspired by a story – whether it’s a much-loved dog named Maisie, or that great literary hero, Harry Paget Flashman. What better tool to chop the logs for a real, holiday-season fire?
