The Axeman's Folly is an ale that temporarily raises one's Woodcutting level. However, it also lowers some melee combat skills. It requires level 49 Cooking to make and gives 413 experience when made. It can be brewed by members, as shown in the in-game brewing section of the Cooking skill. To brew, a player must visit one of the breweries found in Keldagrim or Port Phasmatys.
Because it would take many axeman's follys to woodcut effectively, this item is not used often.
