Maintenance Ochsenkopf axe
The right maintenance extends the life of your axe. For that reason you should always correctly store your tools. A storage place that is too dry will dry out the handle. However, a storage place that is too humid will make the handle swell which could, in time, damage the fibres of the wood. If you are planning to store your axe for a longer period of time it is wise to protect the cutting surface from rust. All you have to do is apply a little bit of oil or fat on the cutting surface. Afterwards protect the edge with, for instance, a sheath and you are good to go.

As a countryside ranger in the UK a good axe is invaluable, be it laying an overstood hedge when a billhook will not do, or getting you out of sticky situations when your chainsaw is stuck or it has bogged down and you need to finish delimbing a tree. This German axe from Ochsenkopf is a good weight and well forged. Dankjulliewel Knives and Tools. An excellent company in the Netherlands and I am relieved that (so far) you are continuing to supply your customers on Idiot Island.
