Fire Axe Inc. produces Firefighter axes that are identical to the original 'Seagrave Axe'. The 4lb Head is mirror polished steel and measures 10" long, including the 3 3/4'" Pick. This firefighter pick head axe has a 28” Hickory Wood or Nupla Fiberglass handle.
Excellent Handle Options
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.
Fire Axe Inc. uses a handle made exclusively for the The Firefighter Axe by NUPLA Corp., one of America’s top manufacturers of tool handles. The brown Nupla fiberglass handle was designed to mimic the look of a traditional wooden handle. The fiberglass handle is rated at an incredible 1200 lbs! It is also heavily epoxied to the head.
Fireground Safety and Added Comfort
If your hands have ever slipped while using an axe, you recognize the danger in swinging one. This axe handle helps reduce that risk by providing you with a textured grip, short neck, and a “fawn’s foot” knob at the end to help prevent that from happening.
