CR2748: 2748 Pack Axe, Designed by Elmer Roush
Veteran designed, tested, and approved.

Elmer Roush spent 18 months in Vietnam. So when his vision for a field axe comes to fruition, it's inspired by more than just aesthetics. The Pack Axe is refined down to the minute details and wilderness-ready on every last level.

"Cut effectively, chop effectively." Those are the two simple objectives Elmer Roush set out with when he took to the drawing board. From his workspace in Brasstown, North Carolina, he achieved them to a T in the Pack Axe. But it didn't happen on the first go. Elmer's style is all experimental—make it too big and too long, then pare down until it feels just right. Some may say it's a bit unorthodox, but after holding the Pack Axe, you'll become a believer.

It's an all-around outdoor-savvy axe with a hot forged 1060 carbon steel head complete with a hammer finish. Sitting snugly atop a highly ergonomic Tennessee hickory handle, it's at once good looking, durable, and compact enough to be lashed to a pack for journeys miles from anywhere. A leather sheath (sold separately) completes the smart, rugged carry.

Perfectly portable, seriously serviceable, the Pack Axe is further proof that Elmer is at the top of the pack.

Perfect Pack Axe
Love this pack axe by CRKT. Nice weight and balance for hikes or chores around the campsite. I would love to find a well made properly fitting sheath for it. So please let me know if any of you out there know where I can find one. Been looking but, so far unsuccessful. Thanks in advance.
