6 Pound Pickhead Axe

6 Pound Pickhead Axe with Fiberglass Handle

Probably the most recognized hand tool used by fire departments, the pickhead axe is indispensable on a fire scene.  Our axe has a six pound head as compared to the hardware store variety which usually weighs in at around four pounds or so.  A four pound head is good for use around the house or farm where the user might have to swing it for a few hours.  However, fire departments need maximum force and cutting power for a short time.  The additional weight ensures deep cuts with every swing.  The pick (actually referred to as a pall) allows the user to pry through plaster laths, dry wall, etc.

The four pound head makes the unit light enough to carry across country to fight the difficult to get to fires.
