CRKT Woods Nobo Tomahawk Axe: RMJ T-Hawk Lightweight Outdoor Camping Axe, Forged Carbon Steel Blade and Hickory Wooden Handle 2732

Model: 2732   |    Mpn: 2732   |    Ean: 0794023273205   |    PartNumber: 2732   |   Asin: B01N2BB3G6

Build a Nice Log Cabin Fire. Heck, Build a Nice Log Cabin Home.

This traditionally-modeled two-handed camp axe with a hickory handle and hot forged blade, will make your life easier when you re off the grid.

Ryan Johnson of RMJ Tactical in Chattanooga, TN designed the Nobo T-hawk. He s a specialist in applying modern engineering to centuries old tool and weapon concepts, and upping the ante once again with a new outdoor line of tomahawks that swing as big as the open wilderness in which they re found.

The design for this T-Hawk is modeled after the classic trade tomahawks common during the 18th century. Carried by Native Americans and frontiersmen alike, this remake is made less for self defense, and more for battle with a few old Doug Firs. The Nobo is made from a solid chunk of 1055 carbon steel that is hot forged into a rock-solid head and features a hammer finish. With primary and secondary edge bevels that are flat ground, it cuts through timber like a beaver.

The thick wood handle is made in the USA from Tennessee hickory. It's comfortable in hand and sealed with a lacquer coat that adds durability whenever you're in the backcountry in other words, all the time.

Grab hold of the Nobo T-Hawk and split some wood like a cord s worth.

NOTE: Leather sheath is available as an after-market add-on. It is not included. But don t worry. You won t want to keep this baby wrapped up.

The CRKT Limited Lifetime Warranty covers any defects in materials or workmanship. If one of our knives ever breaks or fails because of material or manufacturing defect, we ll repair or replace the knife. This warranty runs as long as you own your knife. Coverage ends if you sell or otherwise transfer the knife to someone else, or if your CRKT knife is modified in any way. This warranty does not cover breakage or failure due to misuse of the knife. For additional details about the CRKT Limited Lifetime Warranty see the manufacturer s website.

Warranty: This warranty covers any defects in materials or workmanship. If one of our knives ever breaks or fails because of material or manufacturing defect, we'll repair or replace the knife. This warranty runs as long as you own your knife. Coverage ends if you sell or otherwise transfer the knife to someone else, or if your CRKT knife is modified in any way. This warranty does not cover breakage or failure due to misuse of the knife. Knives as good as ours rarely break or fail because of a defect. Usually they break or fail from what we call "tool abuse"-using them for unsuitable tasks like prying or pounding. Therefore, blade tip breakage is not covered by our warranty. Use of a knife for any purpose other than cutting voids the warranty. (The exceptions to this caution are the A.B.C. Aqua and MAK-1 Multiple Access Knife which have tips designed specifically for prying.) So please match the tool to the task, and use your knife only for cutting. The knife will last longer, and you'll be safer too. This warranty does not cover failure of mechanisms due to your failure to properly maintain them. Also, consequential and incidental damages are not recoverable under this warranty. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of consequential damages, so this exclusion or limitation may not apply to you. Misuse of your knife can cause serious injury or even death. It can also cause your knife to break or fail and the CRKT limited lifetime warranty will not apply. Failure to properly maintain your knife also may cause its mechanisms to not function properly, which could result in injury to you or damage to the knife. Follow the do's and don'ts which are included in your CRKT knife package and the knife will last longer and you'll be safer too.

CRKT Cimbri Tactical Axe: Forged by War, Two Handed Outdoor Axe, Throwing Axe, Forged Carbon Steel Blade, Hickory Handle 2747

Model: 2747   |    Mpn: 2747   |    Ean: 0794023274707   |    PartNumber: 2747   |   Asin: B07HYT5LYW

Ancient form meets contemporary function. With deep roots in 8th century weaponry, the Cimbri two-handed camp axe mimics lines, balance, and heft of its medieval counterpart. But unlike the Frankish axe, its primary adversary is a stout log. Veteran and designer Elmer Roush was perusing the weapons collection in the British Museum when he was struck by an ancient Frankish axe. Inspired by the flawless intersection of artful lines and powerful usability, he set out to create a modern camp and mission-ready version and name it after the Germanic people that challenged the ancient Roman Republic. The result: a hot-forged carbon steel axe head sculpted for a balanced swing and a deep bite. Paired with the ergonomic Tennessee hickory handle, it s ready to do right by its heritage. An ancient axe paved the way for the contemporary powerhouse that is the Cimbri. About the Forged By War Program In 2013, Ryan Johnson of RMJ Tactical, designer of elite, military, tactical tomahawks, approached CRKT with the news that he had been working with a few combat veterans that had returned from war with varying degrees of post-traumatic stress (PTS). To help work through their challenges, they have been designing and forging steel into custom tools. Drawing from their experience earned in combat situations, they have been creating tools they wished they had available to them in the battlefield. CRKT cares deeply about our returning veterans and we saw a way to give back to the community that created them. In 2016, we launched the Forged By War program. These are mission ready tools, designed by warriors, with a portion of the CRKT profits donated back to the veterans' charity of choice. Elmer Roush's charity of choice for this tool is the Green Beret Foundation. Mission ready tools that are Forged By War.

Features

  • Hot forged 1055 carbon steel is tough and durable
  • Black magnesium phosphate coating on the head provides corrosion resistance
  • Tennessee Hickory handle to head ratio is well balanced for extended use in the field
  • Designed by Elmer Roush
  • Limited Lifetime Warranty covers any defects in materials or workmanship, see company site for details
