IDT (INDIVIDUAL DEMOLITION TOOL)
AKA:TOPS CRASH AXE
FOR GUYS THAT JUST DON’T GET INVITED TO PARTIES.
Crash axes were originally developed for emergency use for escaping from downed aircraft. Their use has certainly been extended to SWAT, Fire and Emergency services, as well as being a 'Door Opener' for military units operating searches and seizures in urban areas.
TOPS IDT has an extra heavy tactical head. By itself it weighs one pound, made of 3/8" thick 1095 tempered carbon tool steel. The head is attached to a special handle configuration to improve the momentum (power) of the chop or down stroke.
The tubular handle is made of chrome moly alloy (4130), considered stronger and lighter than steel. Chrome moly is like steel on steroids. It exhibits strength, toughness, and ductility.
To ensure a secure grip on the handle, TOPS has provided a large 8" grip area made of "Eezer foam." Manufactured through a patented proprietary process and unmatched in quality and durability. The smooth surface finish is non-slip under adverse conditions and is a high density shock absorber and insulator, with good abrasion resistance.
This is a tool applicable for many varied uses, including but not limited to.......serving high risk warrants, Fire and Rescue, SWAT, urban structure clearing, chopping through doors, walls, ceilings, and floor boards, and of course, dismantling barricades. Not much is going to slow this brute down!!!!!
An excellent addition to a 72 hour kit.
