Upon the handle of aged old oak was a blade of sharpest steel. It had been fashioned in a time when an axe could be anything, from homely firewood maker to something for defence.

The axe was as blunt as the captain's wit. If this was an indication of how prepared were, we were screwed. Winter would kill this army faster than the enemy.

The rusting axe was leant up against a tree stump in the Amazon forest. It's blade was worn from cutting down several trees away over a prolonged period of time. It's wooden handle was rough through bad manufacturing. It gave off a horrible woody metal smell.
