Okay, first because the word “axe” was used instead of “ask” one might assume that you were referring to the purchase or choice of an actual axe without any other details.

Secondly, you didn’t say no.

Thirdly, this was posted as a mental exercise to see what various people might come up with that is different, each of us could come away with a few new ideas that are reasonably inexpensive.

To the rest of the forum, still looking for ideas.
