But certainly less obvious to a passer by at 30 yards, so they'd be less likely to phone the police about a mad axe wielding suspicious person hanging about in the woods
So it's suspicious to hang around in the woods with an axe? Does not compute.

You have to understand the British mindset. Years of being told anything sharper than a crayon is going to lead to mass death and destruction has people freaking out and phoning the police at the sight of even small blades like stanley knives (box cutters to you) let alone larger bladed tools like axes.
