Protection for the neck of an axe

Apr 23 2013

Throughout the years I have learned that the neck of an axe gets worn. In the end the whole handle has to be exchanged.

Since many years have I protected the neck with some metal and prolonged the life of the handle many years.

It isn’t expensive nor complex. I have cut an ordinary tin can, flattened it and then bent it again around the neck of the axe. I have then taped it together. The tape gets worn and has to be changed once a year, depending on how much the axe is used, type of wood and skill of axe handling.
