There’s Nothing Like a Good Piece of Hickory

I managed to break an axe handle the other day, so I had to go buy a new one, and I have to say, nothing makes one feel like quite as much of a badass as carrying around an axe handle.  An actual axe just feels utilitarian, but the handle alone is different (it would require further experimentation to determine whether a fiberglass handle would work as well as a wooden one, but I suspect not).  I feel like I should write another JT Quinn story just to use this fact somewhere.
