Fiskars X10 Carpenter's Axe - £22.50 @ Tesco

24
Found 19th Apr 2014
The only axe you will ever need (unless you need a bigger one - but Fiskars do them too) - made in Finland and backed by the Fiskars quality guarantee... Cheapest price I have ever seen it by far (normally £35 - £40 in most shops and online). A large number of other Fiskars tools are also on offer, but this one I particularly liked.

Product detail:
Specially designed for carpenters, construction workers and house owners, this black and yellow Fiskars X10 axe features a FibreComp™ 49cm handle that minimises fatigue, and provides you with a very tough, hard to break tool. Ultra-light and durable, with a hooked end to reduce the risk of it slipping out of your hands, the Fiskars axe is extremely easy and safe to use. Complete with a hardened PTFE coated stainless steel blade, the Fiskars axe makes easy work of a variety of wood thicknesses ...

I like it, but I was thinking more like:

Axe? Looks more like a hatchet to me.

Managed to break one after 8 years of use, the metal axe part (no idea what to call it) broke away from the handle. Still a great axe though.

This makes a great gift for an Uncle who has recently got divorced, lost custody of the children and has been called in for a Performance Development Review with HR.

A shotgun works quicker though.

If so, then you are up for the high-jump, through lack of knowledge of uk law, you'd end up as the soap boy in prison showers.

that's debatable for self defence and 'handy-woman' work ..last I knew women weren't in prison with men agree my knowledge must be lacking

Prefer a metal one, the wooden one will have to suffice. Thanks

Ordered with hopefully 8.4% topcashback (ending mon). If it tracks.

Don't be a pedant, & read up on the law wise ass, (we've been through the legal aspect of this so many times on HUKD)...or don't & learn the hard way.
Look here

Seriously, a nasty outcome of thinking you know the law vs actually grasping the law (esp when put under pressure to either react or to have to defend yourself elsewhere afterwards, like a court.

Context has to be justified not used merely as an excuse, even my kid knows the balance between giving someone a hiding (& open to court prosecution hanging over your head) compared to reasonable force, this applies just as much within the playground now as the street & home invasion, even the law on dogs protecting the home has been turned on it's head recently based on kids being savaged for "apparantly" no reason, oO

If you think first with this sort of thing & spend 20 mins checking uk law out on line then you can learn a lot ..& going forward prop up your case in terms of actions / reasons exercised.

Just the other day I had this happen whilst I was processing logs with my billhook (like a machete) when an irate woman forced her way onto the property & started gobbing off.
(hint never do this, my tools are sharp & my temper short), ..I had to reasonably (to which she resisted repeatedly) to get her back off the property safely, ..as a valve for me as well as thinking of her.

...blah blah blah, had to spend 1.5hrs talking through this with a policeman next day & to impress upon him, enough is enough & that if I did let loose the scenario is set & he already understands invasive, abusive, harassment et al, people trying to force their way into the house after you have refused to talk to them & have repeatedly warned them of the possibility of escalation.

after all that, it's down to "intent" to cause harm where a baseball bat for this sort of thing will not help you in the slightest, & where you could have stopped after subduing someone, it's a shady old scenario, especially when the blood is pumping or you've had to explain yourself countless times under duress.

That loosely is the way it is here in the uk, can be far more rigourous & intimidating abroad where english is not a first language or a fight erupts & professional as they may be local police are more than a tad jaded with Brit behaviour.

I also have a blunt side of my tool (which i'd prefer to use to put someone down rather than have them bleed out), to use unlike a baseball bat, this sort of thought & use can be the difference between a court believing you by a hairs breadth & going down).

check out Section 76 of the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008 to see what I mean, after that
Despite the change in Apr? 2013 one paragraph typically conflicts with another, of which the daily mail will fail to explain, leaving far to many in a parlous state.

Hope that helps

Lol just brit attitude Soon as the word "self defence" or "weapon" gets said you all jump up and start making statements from the law book. If someone robs your house just make them a cup of tea and show them around.

Well airhead, can you afford to defend yourself in court & pay the legal bill afterwards? X) X) X)

whilst holding what could be deemed an offensive weapon I can be accused of intimidation or harassment by the other party, whether they are on my land or not & regardless of what I was using it for just mere seconds before & the clear evidence of woodchips & sawdust.

She feels threatened therefore she causes a problem & complains to the police, I subsequently have to deal with the fallout despite her initiation of the whole shebang.

If Ceejay12 or anyone else keeps a bat behind the door chances are they'll step off their property with what under the circumstances is construed as a weapon, the excuse of midnight baseball games don't wash with the police, ..you may be asked where the well used ball is, why the bat is so shiny & the explicit rules of the game, anything to prove you went out with intent to cause harm.

So scoff all you like, your attitude merely defines you as minefield fodder. X) i'd prefer to improve my chances of getting through unscathed.

Thanks for posting this deal.

Get your point. Save a lot of court cases and tax payers funds being used to flip the bill for assault cases on women who HAVE NOT defended ourselves against men who think they can try their luck ..prevention and protecting our bodies is a priority we must have over men who do assault women and the rules within the legal system on self defence for women to protect themselves, clearly needs to be updated - so yes women in vulnerable circumstances at their own door should have whatever they can access to let the perpetrator know there are boundaries that these lowlife men should not cross, simple!

ceejay12, if need be you need to make whatever you have either waved around or used plausible to all questioning motive & strength of action, (which always need to show a certain amount of restraint), therefore my DIY bucket tends to sit by the front door, full of all sorts for some grab & go interchangeable diy, that invariably involves blades of varying types, the best bread knife I ever owned was an electricians knife, ..

I went to the door with a knife because I was just chopping onions / veg, with a view to getting a headstart on prepping tomorrows meal ..(for instance).

A blowtorch (not a wee cooking one) is another favourite of mine cooking / DIY ..nasty prospect against skin esp "wet" areas if push comes to shove.

I tend to have wood offcuts around at a push, good for straight measuring, propping things etc...

Although very cumbersome a crowbar, those skirting boards need to come off... not good to swing, really not, & the shock that goes through your arm with contact is not nice.

Which is why I love my bill-hooks, agricultural, garden use, stripping cables, all-sorts easy & has good weight to it flip & you have a blunt side, it hurts to get hit or merely tapped by one.

Even a choke chain from on of our dogs when folded double, if you walk a dog, get a heavyish link chain lead even if it's a small dog.
A good size (500ml) beer bottle ...due to be "popped outside" for recycling.
A lot of items can be loaded / unloaded from a dishwasher, or about to be freshened up.

Not suggesting you fake it, but do look at what scenarios could be likely utilised within everyday life, & in context to your surroundings.

Same as winterising a car & popping a few pieces in that can stay handy, (We use the spare tyre space incidentally).

Just look around, recognise the potential of objects easily to hand at certain points within the home, & if you have to pause to rummage for something its not good.

That would explain why it splint into TWO parts, the axe bit and the handle, yes.
