F.A.X. FAST AXE 2***
(GO ANYWHERE VERSATILITY)
For many years our good friend, Allen “The Axe man” Jensen, has designed and developed tools for his outdoor ventures. He is a Scout leader, knife and axe designer, and has spent a great deal of time in the outdoors working with members of the BLM, Forest Service, and Hot Shot crews (highly trained wild land firefighters). With his practical engineering background (AKA MacGyver), he uses the information he gathers, digests and analyzes it, to perfect his field tools.
His creation known as the F.A.X. or FAST AXE is a lightweight alternative for campers, hikers, or trekkers. The FAST AXE’s head, with its wide cutting edge made of 1095 High Carbon alloy, takes a good deep bite when taking down light wood, taking an animal apart, making tent poles, firewood, or doing a host of other camp chores.
It has a Chrome-Molly alloy (4130) tubular handle and the head is pressed and pinned deeply into this handle. The combination exhibits strength and ductility.
An 8” long EEZER foam grip ensures a solid nonslip grip for the most rugged situations. This is manufactured through a patented proprietary process and is unmatched in quality and durability.
A Kydex “snap on cover” protects the edge of the blade and has a steel spring clip for easy belt attachment.
