Cold Steel Trail Boss Axe, 27 Inch

Asin: B07QXVR1LS

The Trail Boss is light and compact enough to carry all day in your hand or strapped to your pack, yet heavy and tough enough for chores that would make a hatchet or tomahawk scream for mercy. Featuring a European style head with a 4" blade and a 4 1/2" cutting edge, it takes a big bite with every swing. Plus, it features a very stout straight-grained Hickory handle. Extensively field-tested by Lynn C. Thompson on a month long hunting trip in the outback of Australia, the Trail Boss was really put to the test. He used it to chop kindling, clear roads and trails, to build blinds and even to chop down a fair sized Gidgee Tree (one of the hardest woods found down under).

Features

  • Hawk Length: 6 1/2 - Inch
  • Handle: American Hickory
  • Overall Length: 26 - Inch
  • Steel: Drop Forged 1055 Carbon
  • Primary Edge: 4 1/2 - Inch

CRKT Woods Chogan Tomahawk Axe: RMJ T-Hawk Lightweight Outdoor Camping Axe with Hammerhead, Forged Carbon Steel Blade, and Hickory Wooden Handle 2730

Model: 9001310   |    Mpn: 2730   |    Ean: 0794023273007   |    PartNumber: 2730   |   Asin: B00I04Q7LO

Build a Nice Log Cabin Fire. Heck, Build a Nice Log Cabin Home. This two-handed camp axe with a hickory handle, hot forged blade, and hammerhead will make your life easier when you re off the grid. Ryan Johnson of RMJ Tactical in Chattanooga, TN designed The Woods Chogan T-Hawk. A specialist in applying modern engineering to centuries old tool and weapon concepts, he is upping the ante once again with a new outdoor line of tomahawks that swing as big as the open wilderness where they re found. The design for this T-Hawk evolved from the popular and original tactical tomahawk series. But it s built for battle with a few old Doug Firs. The Woods Chogan is made from a solid chunk of 1055 carbon steel that is hot forged into a rock-solid head that features a hammer finish. With primary and secondary edge bevels that are flat ground, it cuts through timber like a beaver. A hammerhead is useful for pounding in nails and stakes for the tent you ll put by your roaring fire. 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 Woods Chogan 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.

CRKT Freyr Tactical Axe: Outdoor Axe with Deep Beard Design, Forged Carbon Steel Blade, and Hickory Wooden Handle 2746

Model: 2746   |    Mpn: 2746   |    Ean: 0794023274608   |    PartNumber: 2746   |   Asin: B0768WT52V

Norse design with a soul that s all American. Why meddle with an axe shape that has been tried and true for over a thousand years? That s the logic designer and veteran Elmer Roush brings to the Freyr tactical axe. The deep beard echoes Viking style. But its balance and pure burliness boosts it into a contemporary league all its own. Shield and Viking battle cry not included. Elmer Roush of Brasstown, North Carolina has one foot definitively in the past. When it comes to designing axes, that is. Though the Freyr s deep beard might not be put to use drawing back an enemy s shield as it would have in Viking-patrolled seas of lore, the balance it adds elevates this axe to a modern workhorse. Named after the Norse god of prosperity, its Viking soul stands up to its classic appearance. The blade itself is hot forged of carbon steel and receives a passivation treatment for ultimate corrosion resistance. It s met with a handle carved of Tennessee hickory and is precisely crafted for durability and ease of use. An aftermarket leather sheath is available for purchase. If it s true that history repeats itself, then this utilitarian axe is definitive proof. 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 veterans, with 10% of the CRKT net profits of the program donated to the veterans' charity of choice. Mission ready tools that are Forged By War. Learn more here. Elmer Roush's charity of choice for this tool is the Green Beret Foundation. *Although we know the temptation is great, we do not advise throwing this specific tool for safety and potential void of warranty reasons.
