  • Handle Guard: Patented feature extends 1-1/2" below head 


A longer pick for a more secure purchase.
At almost 5", the poll, (or pick end) is twice as long most pick-head fire axes. Plus it's designed with a higher, more squared cross section that really digs in. The Firefighter Axe has proven more effective for digging, prying, and picking. And because it can penetrate more deeply into a wider range of materials, you can count on the Firefighter Axe to provide a faster, stronger, more positive purchase, especially in critical situations. 

Redesigned to punch through faster, penetrate more deeply, and come back for more.
In reducing the head length to 12" (to fit today's common gear racks and axe holders), 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 easily, it 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 impact on full penetration or over strikes. 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. 

Traditional Tennessee hickory
The wooden handle is made by American craftsmen of the finest 2nd growth Tennessee Hickory. And it's attached to the head not with a single wedge, like most axes, but four! One lateral wood wedge and three additional metal wedges work together to brace the head in all dimensions. Frankly, if you ever want to replace the handle, you'll have to drill out the old one. 

High-performance fiberglass.
A handle made exclusively for the Firefighter Axe by NUPLA Corp., one of America's top manufacturers of tool handles. The medium brown fiberglass haft was designed to look as much like a traditional wooden handle as possible. But it's rated at 1200 lbs. And it's so firmly epoxied to the head that it simply won't come off. Plus its textured grip, short throat, and "fawn's foot" knob provides a firm, non-slip grip, even with wet gloves. No matter which handle you choose, this is an axe you're going to hold onto…no matter what.
