Best Made Axe Sling

When you’re walking around town and you don’t want to carry your axe, wear an axe sling. Handmade in Vermont, this leather sling will keep your axe head off the ground and your hands free while you move through the forest or shopping mall. This could come in handy during the Zombie¬†Apocalypse, too.

$165 from Best Made Axe Company

hey man, that Zombie Apocalypse is no joke! You’ll be sorry when it comes around and you dont have your trusty Axe sling to free up your arms to use ur other weapons…

That’s a lot of money for an axe sling. I think I’ll just try to make one. It would be more fun aswell.

Even with no experience in leatherworking, you could pretty easily make this axe sling, or one like it, with $20 to $30 worth of leather and a few rivets.

Leatherworking is a pretty awesome man hobby too.

I’d hate to be in a situation where I would be spending more on the sling than the axe. Even if you’re determined to be fancy an absolutely top of the range fire axe is about $100 and after that you’re not going to get much more out of your money. It seems like having your priorities the wrong way round.

I’m sure it’s a lovely product and it’s worth every penny but at the end of the day it’s just a sling that lets you put an axe on your back and there’s an upper limit on what that can be worth.

Is there anything LESS “manly” than paying too much money for a silly fashion accessory in order to play dress-up games?

$165 for a “sling” to tote around your $250 “Best Made” axe—actually a run of the mill axe made by SNow & Nealley that retails for $62 without the precious little paint job—and someone thinks it’s “manly”?

You wanna know how a man carries his axe?

In the back of his pickup truck, along with the other tools he actually USES.

Not enshrined on a wall or in a silly little leather purse.

Hey Some Random Dude. Completely. Freaking. Agree.
What would Ron Swanson say?

And small point, but I think BMC is actually back to using Council axes. So you’re basically way overpaying for a $35-$45 tool, because some other pud sharpened and honed it before painting it, ensuring that it’d never see real use. Ever.

Also, this sling would be the worst option for a quick dispatch. So them zombies will be feasting on the dorks that buy these. A simple loop for your belt is all that’s necessary.
