Keep the neck of your ax protected and ensure that you increase the lifespan of your trusty ax with a leather ax collar. The majority of handle damage often starts at the neck, either from miss-swings or normal wear and tear. Neck collars help protect the neck, and increase handle longevity and durability. WOOX AX1 comes with this collar. However, you can also buy it separately as a replacement or to improve your own ax.
