Re: Need an Ax, what to get?
I prefer wood handles but I so have a could of mauls with fiberglass. Either way I take a roll of electrical tape and start wrapping arounf the handle starting at the head and working down about 4 or 5" then back up again and continue till my tape is gone. Looks funky but if you miss that is where you usually hit the handle and eventually break it. The tape will spread out the shock and cushion the blow keeping your handle clean and sound.
