8# Flathead Firefighter Axe w/36" Fiberglass Handle (One Left)

This is a Genuine Firefighter's Axe by Fire Axe, Inc. This firefighter axe may look like a decorative presentation axe but it's made to be used daily and used hard. Fire Axe, Inc's acclaimed design principles and production techniques have been applied to this axe to increase its cutting power and durability.

The cross-section of the cheek has been slimmed down and the blade edge lengthened to improve penetrating ability and equalize the balance of the head, precisely centering its weight over the axis of the handle. The flat face of the axe is made square with sharp corners to improve penetration. The entire head is balanced front-to-back and side-to-side, so the Flat Head Firefigher Axe not only swings more easily, it also flies straight to land a more solid blow with either end without tending to tip. An integral guard extends down the blade side of the head to enhance rigidity and protect the handle against impact on full penetration or overstrikes. Because the mirror polished surface creates far less friction, you'll find the Firefighter Axe cuts deeper, cleaner, and faster - and stays sharper for the next timeheads are heat treated to make them twice as hard as a regular fire axe, and hand polished to a mirror finish. The axe head is all steel - not just chrome plated.

The handle is made exclusively for the Firefighter Axe by NUPLA Corp., one of America's top manufacturers of tool handles. The medium brown fiberglass haft is designed to look like a traditional wooden handle and is rated at 1200 lbs. and is firmly epoxied to the head. It features a textured grip, short throat, and “fawn's foot" knob to provide a firm, non-slip grip, even with wet gloves.
