I had a eureka moment!
on: April 07, 2018, 12:14:40 AM
My Fiskars felling axe and hatchet did not come with blade covers so, after looking for blade covers on E-bay and finding them ridiculously priced, I was inspired to think outside the box.  I searched instead for the cheapest leather card case I could find on E-bay with suitable dimensions.  I found this for under $2.00 USD, delivered.  I removed the snap and fed a cord loop with a sliding lock through the hole and ended up with a safely covered blade on my hatchet, and since it's big on the hatchet I'm sure the same leather card case will also fit on the felling axe so I will be ordering another one.

Nice easy solution
Solving problems you didn't know you had in the most obscure way possible

"And now, it's time to hand this over to our tame race axe driver. Some say, he can live in the forest for six months at a time without food, and he knows of a secret tribe of only women where he is their God. All we know is, he's call the Styx!" - TazzieRob
