Modeled after the famed Collins Tool “Seagrave Axe” that was often carried by Los Angeles City Firemen in the early 1900s, and a standard companion of firefighters performing forcible entry.

Available in (3) Handle Sizes 28" - 32" - 36"

Fire Axe Inc. produces Firefighter axes that are identical to the original 'Seagrave Axe'. The 8 lb Head is mirror polished steel and measures 9-7/8" long. This firefighter flat head axe can be mounted on your choice of handle. This Firefighter Axe is available with a Hickory Wood or Brown Fiberglass Handle measuring 28”, 32”, or 36” lengths.

All Flat Head axes from Fire Axe Inc. have now been newly designed to feature the marrying tool cut-out feature.

Built Strong - Right Here in the United States of America
Each high grade tool steel head is painstakingly hand-cast with the same lost-wax investment casting method used to reproduce fine sculpture…and precisely ground to the ideal blade angle for the optimum balance of sharpness and durability. Then the heads are heat treated to make them twice as hard as a regular fire axe, and hand polished to a mirror finish. These axes are all steel—not chrome plated. They’ll cut through 16 penny nails and remain razor sharp. And cleaning is quick and easy. With a little care your Firefighter Axe will keep its good looks and fine edge as long you own it.

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. Instead it has 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 incredible1200 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.

Customer Service December 5, 2018
Reviewer: KEN HOHLOCH from Folsom, CA United States  
No product to review,  placed an order on 11/20/2018. Immediately my account was debited and order shown as processing. I called the company to make sure that the sheath that I ordered would fit the axe. I left a voicemail on 11/28 a second one on 11/29. I sent an email  on 12/1 and on 12/2. With no response back yet. My order today still shows that it's processing. I have filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau, and a dispute with my lending institution. This was to be a gift to my oldest son as a graduation present from a Fire Academy.

Love Love Love my Axe!!!! March 3, 2009
Reviewer: Manuel P. from Texas  
I got my flathead with a 32" wood handle.  When I first took it out of the box I could not stop staring at it. This axe is beautiful yet obviously a workhorse.  I like the fact that the entire head is heat treated.  I got alot of info from the customer service when I called.  I really liked the fact that he was also a fireman and actually uses a fire axe inc. axe as well.  I did not ask him what model though. I originally wanted a 28 inch handle but the guy told me that I would probably like the simmetry a 32" handle gives to an 8 pound head. I cannot say if he ways right or not since I have not held a 28" in this model. Anyway, the polished head is really nice, I used it on a call and just polished it back up when I got back to the station.  They sent it to me with care instrcutions from the manufacturer too.  Thanks for the great service and great advice west Coast 911. I will definitely be back!

Fire Axe Product Comment March 3, 2009
Reviewer: Eddie R. from Atlanta, Georgia United States  
The day my axe arrived I was pumped. I opened the box and knew I had made the right choice.  I went with the pick-head fire axe and I absolutely love this thing. It's beautiful. I contemplated getting a cheaper smaller model but was so glad I didn't.  The guys from the westcoast store were really cool. I called and asked a few questions about it and the rep. was right when he said I wouldn't be disappointed.   Great fire axe and great service. I ended up getting the scabbard a few weeks later.
