This is a series on common problems found with axes from craftsmanship to use and abuse. There are many points, like a checklist of things to look at when picking up an axe or axe head which few people are savvy enough to know to look for all of. After this series, you'll have that mental checklist.
The four video segments are on:
Wear and Damage,
Options and Axe Hunting
Most used axes are either worn or abused in some way. Fortunately, they are often perfectly serviceable anyway, usually after a little work. New axes can have various issues and seemingly perfect axes seem to be the exception.
This links to the video playlist. One video will come out every day for the next few days.
