Sometimes, it’s hard to tell if the retail world is having you on.

In the proud tradition of Best Made Axes, St. Liberty has put out a limited edition of lacquered pickaxes, retailing at $125 and befuddling bloggers starting today.

Unless you’ve got a recreational coal mine connected to your cottage upstate—and if so, congratulations—this one’s going to be sitting on your wall until the zombie apocalypse comes. It’s handsome enough…but we can’t help but feel some line has been crossed.
