    I have damaged the threads on the rear axle of my bike. The thread size is "FG 10.5 mm". Where can
    I find a die of that size? Or is it possible to use a die of another size? Maybe I can use M10x1.0
    or UNF 3/8"?

    To buy a 10.5mm die, start with a machinist's/industrial supply house. A 10mm die will be too small.
    A 3/8" die is worse; 9.525mm. 10.5 falls between
    13/32" and 27/64" so you won't find a workable

    If the damage is minor, slitting an axle nut halfway through from the inside makes a thread chaser

    If it is more than minor damage, I have to ask what you think will be better by removing _more_
    material from a thread that's already low? Some reason not to replace the axle?

    You should make a habit of lubricating axle nut ( actually every fastener) threads
