The Pulaski is a combination axe and grub hole ideal for chopping, digging fire lines in hard and soft soils. Ground and tempered cutting edges. Axe head attached to a fiberglass handle which dramatically outlasts wood in firefighting applications by resisting breakage, heat, moisture, and cleaning materials.
– Forged steel head. Made in USA.
– Hand sharpened, single bit edge and mattock blade.
– ANSI Standards call for bit hardness of Rc 45-60, at least ½ inch back from the cutting edge. Council Tool internal standards call for tempered bit hardness of Rc 48-55.
– Body coated with red enamel and the cutting edges in clear lacquer to deter rust.
– 36″ yellow clad style fiberglass handle. Traditional double bit shape. Construction is a pultruded structural fiberglass core with an injection molded jacket acting as an exterior body. The jacket is tough, durable engineered polymer. Extremely strong, non-conductive and non-corrosive.
– Axe head is joined to the handle with a strong resilient epoxy, forming a chemical and mechanical bond. The interior detail of the eye is tapered and allows for a strong mechanical bond.
