This axe was developed for a military rescue/extraction team to meet their needs for a tool that can be used when power tools either fail or are unavailable. Its purpose is to remove survivors, casualties and sensitive equipment from crashed aircraft and ground vehicles. Designed for cutting metal, the blade will not hang in sheet metal. The tapered tang enhances power in a stroke and distributes the majority of the weight to the head making it possible to cut or break through cross beams. The axe features a point on the back of the head that serves a glass breaker, as well as a hole punch for making an entry point for the can opener on the handle. Pictured here with green Micarta handle scales. An good option is rubber handle scales which provide a secure grip in wet or dry conditions and excellent shock-absorption. Functioning as a portable Jaws of Life this extraction tool has proven its effectiveness to law enforcement, first responders and rescue workers, as well as to the team for which it was designed. Price includes a Kydex Carrier with nylon webbing belt hanger. Optional molle clip carry system is available.
Cost: $700.00
Sculpted handle add $25.00
