Description
XTLSA: Large Swiss Axe
Swiss Military Surplus
 
If you can handle the weight, an axe is one of those tools you'd trade many others for in a survival situation. It can perform all the duties of a good saw, large fixed blade, and a small survival knife. If sharpened correctly it can also feather a stick and create some extremely fine kindling. This is one of those axes that can do all this and more - especially splitting which is it's main objective. The 20.5" hardwood handle has a straight profile and the 4.25" blade axe head is superbly attached - that sucker isn't going anywhere. Swiss made, so you know the stainless steel will perform as well as any for both edge retention and corrosion resistance. It's a very well balanced axe with a nicely ground head for multiple uses. Of course it's got a hammer pommel on the other side of the axe for banging in tent pegs and the entire package weighs 2.25 pounds without a sheath.
