Best Made Co. Axe Maker’s Kit – $140.00
Father’s are notoriously difficult to buy for. When I was 12, I asked my Dad what he wanted for Father’s day. His honest answer was: “I could use some more rope for tying the canoe down on top of the mini van.” …Right. Father’s Day is Sunday June 19th. Expect a different gift idea for Dad each day this week.
But $350 for an axe? The Dad you’re buying for is likely to thwap you on the head with the handle if you drop that kind of cash on a tool he’d otherwise pick up for $20 at a hardware store.
Instead, let him make his own. The kit, while still pricey at $140, gives the recipient the tool and an experience. Chopping wood is incredibly satisfying. Chopping wood on a brisk fall morning while using an axe you made and customized yourself?
That’s priceless. (Or in this case, $140.00)
