Using traditional axe to cut larger blocks of wood can be very uncomfortable for workers. A worker has to hold the handle of the axe parallel to the block of wood, which makes it easy for the hands to knock or brush against the wood, and often causing wounds. To address this problem, Flexible Axe is designed with an adjustable angle to suit the conditions of chopping word. When one is using this axe to cut large blocks of wood, the axe handle tilts at a certain angle that makes cutting wood less physically awkward. Workers can also avoid hurting their hands caused by contact with the block of wood.
