By evaluating axe design based on tradition, functionality, and product use I was able to establish a series of problems related to current axe designs. These problems included an understanding of proper technique, accuracy, and user education. In order to address these problems, I used findings from the research and user testimonials to design and develop successful solutions. These solutions were then field tested to verify their validity.
