This isn’t one of those cute little off-road vehicle tool kits that’s made for light-duty use.
No; this is a heavy-duty kit made to save your butt in the field. It has been in use by the
U.S. military in light to medium tactical vehicles for almost two decades. The centerpiece of the kit is the axe, which features a 3.5-pound Hudson Bay-style axehead made of tempered tool steel and a 34-inch composite polyglass handle. Five separate tool heads attach to the handle for a total of seven tools: axe/sledge, shovel, pick, rake, hoe, broad pick and mattock. Includes a leather axehead sheath and Cordura carrying case. It is 100 percent sourced and made in the U.S.A.
