I have seen a lot of how to build a axe instructables. But most of these are way to complicated to make and can't be made in a survival scenario. So I decided to make this simple stone axe

Warning not a toy I am not responsible for your stupidity

Step 1: Materials

In order to attach the stone to the wood. I used a saw for this step.

Make one notch in the top and the bottom make sure that you make them deep enough so they don't come out.

Step 3: (optional) Sharp Point

Take a the small sharp stone and place in on top of the stick then very tightly duck tape it down
