The CRKT 2745 Birler Axe was designed by Elmer Roush to be lightweight to carry but a heavyweight when it comes time to break down doors or take down a tree. He has taken his Vietnam War experience and 40 years of blacksmithing to create this exceptional tool. Made from nearly indestructible 1055 carbon steel that has been forged and placed on a stout Tennessee Hickory handle that wont let you down. Brand new direct from CRKT.
About the Forged By War™ program – In 2013, Ryan Johnson of RMJ Tactical, designer of elite, military, tactical tomahawks, approached CRKT with the news that he had been working with a few combat veterans that had returned from war with varying degrees of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). To help work through their challenges, they have been designing and forging steel into custom tools. Drawing from their experience earned in combat situations, they have been creating tools they wished they had available to them in the battlefield.
These are mission ready tools, designed by veterans, with 10% of the CRKT net profits of the program donated to the veterans' charity of choice. Elmer Roush's charity of choice for this tool is the Green Beret Foundation.
