    Default It's Official! We're a nation of wussies.

    I've owned a Michigan double bit axe with a hickory handle forever. It was my Dad's before I inherited it. Between the two of us, it fell a lot of trees, cut a lot of timber, cleared a lot of land and has been a workhorse for all these years.

    Yesterday, I was clearing an old logging road, making it wider to access a pasture on our property. As I was chopping a mid-sized pine, I took one swing (which made solid contact) and heard a odd "crack". I checked the axe handle and noticed the hickory had finally had enough and cracked immediately underneath the axe head.

    Tonight I thought, I should retire that old axe and just buy a new Michigan axe with one of those fiberglass handles. I went to Amazon.com and did a search and came up with nothing but body spray. I'm going to the local hardware store in the morning. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Never you mind. The body spray will come in handy someday.

    What is wrong with you only having one double bit axe.....good grief I keep two just in my little Bronco II with three more in the garage. The harware store is the only answer to get a handle and you probably have to pick through a dozen handles to get one good enough to use.

    If they have a Tractor Supply Store in your area, they carry replacement handles.
