I have recently taken up the post of QM for the local scout group and I am dreading what shape or form there cutting tools are in. Particualarly there axes having had some scary close shaves as a youngin becuase of cheap hardware store bought axes.
My question is what would you guys recommend as the best axe for kids aged from 10 to 16?
It needs to be reliable, easy to look after, use and relativly cheap. All do the last point depends on the troops budget I would prefer there only to be two or three really good safe axes to share rather then four five dangerous ones.
I hope this doesn't cross over the earlier thread, but I thought the specs of whats needed might different enough to warrant a new one.
Thanks in advance,
