Here at Bailey's, we sell a lot of axes. I mean A LOT of axes! Many of us employees have our own small arsenal, too. Not because we necesarily need several axes taking up space in our garages, but just because they're really cool tools, and well, when you need an axe, you NEED an axe! Because of customer requests (demand) we now carry lines from just about every manufactuerer you can think of including: Council Tool, Fiskars, Wetterlings, Husqvarna, Truper, SOG (tactical axes), Silky (hatchets), Ochsenkopf, and many more... As a tribute to the mighty Axe, we asked our senior graphic designer to create the illustration below, outlining the Anatomy of an Axe. Amaze all of your friends with this incredible, newly found knowledge by slipping phrases into your conversation like, "Yeah, yesterday I broke the haft on my axe right in the middle of the belly, but thankfully Bailey's stocks a complete line of quality replacement handles..." or "The other day I bought a new German-made Ochsenkopf. Unfortunately, I had to touch up the heel of the bit because I accidentally nicked it on a rock when I was hewing some timbers for my new log home." Enjoy.
As always, good cutting (or chopping as the case may be),

There has been a lot of marketing build-up and much anticipation regarding Oregon's new PowerSharp saw chain and sharpening system. Suffice it to say that we're excited about this new product, but at the same time we're anxious for a bit of feedback from our customers. We've been told by Oregon that PowerSharp will be available to ship in early September. If you decide to give it a shot, we'd be very interested in hearing your thoughts after you've had a chance to use the system for awhile. Check out the video below and maybe you'll decide it's worth a few bucks to see if PowerSharp can successfully replace hand-filing or sharpening your chain loops with a grinder.
