I am sorry, but the answer to the crossword question “Work with a pick and an ax?” is STRUM is not correct. It seems like an incorrect answer. The word “strum” does not seem to have any relation to the tools “pick” and “ax“. “Strum” typically refers to a method of playing musical instruments like guitars and ukuleles where the strings are swept or brushed in a rhythmic manner. Therefore, this answer seems to be invalid, and the correct answer to the crossword question remains unknown without further context.
