1929 issue of Boy’s Life featured an ad for the official Plumb Scout axe stating “There’s fun in chipping when the chips fall fast and the blade swings free: It takes the hard work out of chopping kindling, whittling tent stakes, building log cabins and signal towers, ctting tent poles, clearing away underbrush and a hundred other jobs.” It sold for $1.80. Our lists for considerably more, but a bargain at half the price. Built tough with steel axe head and wood handle. Measures 15” long from head to handle top. Includes embossed leather sheath to protect the blade. Engraved head with official BSA emblem.
