Pierre M. mentioned a leather Axe Sling, made in Vermont. “Unless you are a lumberjack, the only time it would be socially acceptable to walk around with an axe strapped to your back is if the streets were swarming with brain-hungry zombies. That being said, this does look pretty cool in a leg-slapping Bavarian folk dance kinda way.”Pierre also sent a link another brand that is less expensive. All zombie jokes aside, these do have some utility, particularly for carrying a limbing axe when you are out in the woods with your hands full–namely a gas can in one hand and a chainsaw in the other.
