    For Sale African handmade axe/hatchet

    I have for sale a handmade African axe/hatchet. I bought it on my travels in Kenya many years ago.

    Trip Report Part 2: Classic Backpacking 1/24/16 - 1/25/16

    This advice is not intended for the tenderfoot, for he should never attempt to "rough it," and that is just what it means to "travel light," for when making long journeys over land, carrying the camping outfit and food on one's back, one must leave behind all of those little articles which are...

    Collins Hunter’s Axe Review
