I like it. I see the association with cone-type loudspeakers and
axes, but the others I'm not so sure of. But that doesn't matter:
what's important is that it's simple, distinct from the others, and
does invoke /some/ images that make it easy to remember. I like this
one better than any of mine. Here's another association it had in
my mind that might be interesting: the fact that the "axe head"
was imbedded in a thin ring brought to my mind the Nazi Fasces.
Perhaps a double ring would emphasize that?
