Our axes are hand forged from a block of 4142 chrome/moly alloy steel in the Blue Ridge mountains on the Western North Carolina, Eastern Tennessee line and heat treated to 55HRC. The heads are hung on straight grained hickory handles made from cabinet grade kiln dried lumber. Each handle is hand fitted with a drawknife. These 2.5 pound axes were built for versatility as a one, or two handed axe capable of being worn on the hip in a secure leather sheath provided by us. The pick end of the axe is hardened to penetrate through hard construction and vehicle materials with minimal wear. These axes have been rigorously tested by firemen to ensure that our axes can dependably perform in life-saving situations. We have not tried to re-invent the wheel with this one, but rather we have brought it back with a "no gimmick" product fitted with a 19-inch hickory handle. Each axe head is secured properly with a 5/16” roll-pin through the side of the axe as a failsafe. Additionally, the top and bottom of the axe blades have a ground side bevel to aid in easier penetration, and easier removal from sheet metal, and other construction materials. The tenacious qualities of this axe make it an essential carry for any fireman, search and rescue, SWAT, police, paramedic, or other life-saving persons. Sheaths are hand made with thick vegetable tanned water buffalo leather. 100% made in house. Overbuilt and ready to use, because overkill never fails. NEW FROM MAKER.
