- Respect your axe – it will excel at all your bush, home, camping and craft exploits, providing a lifetime of service. Use your axe for its intended purpose.
- Keeping the edge - the axes I craft have the edges ground with Australian Hardwoods in mind - a convex grind. A quality ceramic grinding stone and correct technique are best or a professional sharpening service.
- Storage – after use and before storage, wipe your axe down with and dry thoroughly. It is best to give your axe a light oil. Avoid storing your axe in its sheath when damp or for prolonged periods.
- Patina – as your axe encounters different elements it will begin to naturally oxidize and form its own grey/blue patina. Over time this will form a protective layer which helps protect against rust. Enjoy this process, it’s the story every experience your axe has undertaken.
