Bought a new Made in USA axe
I swear that it is really a pain to find something made in the USA nowadays. I wander stores looking for a specific item and often go home empty handed because most everything is foreign made and not very good quality. Today I did manage to find a True Temper brand 3.5 lb. single bit axe with a “Proudly Made in the USA” sticker on it (check the labels; I cannot say for certain that all of their products are made in the USA). It should last me the rest of my days although that is what I thought about my last axe until a neighbor borrowed it and managed to “use” it beyond ready repair. I decided it best to just go buy myself a new one and donate that one to him.
