Fireman's Backup Axe

Fireman’s Backup Axe

Posted in GEAR, TOOLS By

For most survivalists, hunters, or unspecified tactical operators, a fixed blade knife will suffice. But most firemen on the other hand, would never backup their frontline axe with anything but another axe, hence the name.

The Fireman’s Backup Axe ($200) was specifically designed for the highly specialized Hot Shot Crews in the wildland fire service as an extra tool on the fire line. And because of it’s tough 1095 high carbon alloy, black coated blade that happens to measure in at a beefy 7.5 inches long, some SWAT teams, various government agencies, and specialized military units have also put the axe to some good use.
