In a test of his integrity, she emerges with a golden axe, and then a silver one, but the woodcutter dutifully denies ownership each time. Impressed by his honesty when he correctly identifies his original iron axe, the benevolent Goddess rewards the woodcutter’s virtue by gifting him all three axes, reinforcing the timeless moral that honesty, even in difficult times, is the noblest policy.
