See a proud and practical firefighter reflected in your axe. This is more than just another axe. It's a work of functional fireman's art that you can swing with power—and pride—for generations to come. The Firefighter Axe may look like a decorative presentation axe, but it's made to be used. Used daily. Used hard. Then proudly passed down to the next firefighter in your family. Today's cheaper machine-made fire axes simply can't compare.
Redesigned to cut faster, penetrate more deeply, and come back for more.
In reducing the head length to 10 1/4” and subtly streamlining the cross-section, Fire Axe. Inc was able to equalize the balance of the head, with its weight precisely centered over the axis of the handle, balanced front-to-back and side-to-side. The Firefighter Axe not only swings more quickly, but it also flies straight, landing a more solid blow without tending to tip. An integral guard extends down the blade side of the head to enhance rigidity and protect the handle against the impact on full penetration or overstrikes. And because the mirror-polished surface creates far less friction, you'll find the Firefighter Axe cuts deeper, cuts cleaner, cuts faster…and stays sharp for the next time.
Virtually hand-made in the USA, with the finest American raw materials.
Each high-grade tool steel head is painstakingly hand-cast with the same lost-wax investment casting method used to reproduce fine sculpture…and precisely ground to the ideal blade angle for the optimum balance of sharpness and durability. Then the heads are heat-treated to make them twice as hard as a regular fire axe and hand-polished to a mirror finish. These axes are all-steel—not chrome plated. They'll cut through 16-penny nails and remain razor-sharp. And cleaning is quick and easy. With a bit of care, your Firefighter Axe will keep its good looks and fine edge for at least as long as you own it.
