    Foldable ax

    The idea has merit but, like everyone else, I fail to see how well it would work when hitting something hard. Maybe a better idea would be to half a piece of pipe and fit it out so that it can screw together to make a handle, then screw that handle to the axe head. Even having 2 rods that could slide down a hole in the handle shaft, with the ends only meeting in between 2 pivots, would greatly improve the handle strength.
