Product Description

2.75 lb. Pickhead shaped “fireman’s” axe with 28″ curved hickory handle. Traditional pickhead style in a medium head weight offering. Cutting bit on one end and a pick designed to penetrate on the other. Carried by officers and anyone needing medium sized tasks accomplished.

  • Forged tool steel head. Made in USA. Cutting edge is approximately 3.5 inches, and tapered pick end is designed for penetration.
  • Hand sharpened, tapered cutting edge.
  • ANSI Standards call for bit hardness of Rc 45-60, at least ½ inch back from the cutting edge. Council Tool internal standards call for tempered bit hardness of Rc 48-55 and we target 1-1/4 inches from the cutting edge. The poll and eye walls are not hardened and remain in the as forged condition.
  • Body coated with red enamel and the cutting edge in clear lacquer to deter rust.
  • 28″ American Hickory handle. Eye section is dried to below 10% moisture content to minimize shrinkage and help prevent loosening.
  • Axe head is hydraulically seated onto handle and secured with a serrated aluminum wedge. The serrated shape improves “bite,” and the aluminum choice of material is strong, lightweight, and does not change size with moisture content.
  • The interior detail of the eye is tapered and allows for a very good mechanical bond. Approximately 1/2″ of the overall length of the handle is removed during assembly.
