FE6 Forcible-Entry Flat-Head Fire Axe
The Council Tool Co. FE6 Forcible Entry Flat-Head fire axe is a simple tool, that has many advantages and design elements to improve performance and usability, while helping to reduce fatigue and injury.
The 6 lb. head is drop-forged out of 4140 High Carbon American tool steel, which matches the Council Tool Halligans. The FE6 is hung on either a 32” or 36” Hickory handle, or on a 34” Fiberglass/ composite handle.
The axe has a marrying slot built into the blade, that is designed to accept standard Halligan forks, to create a set of irons.
The tapered wedge shape of the axe blade allows it to be used as a starter wedge. This also helps to capture progress, while forcing a door.
The spine is continuous, so that the marrying slot does not become a sticking point when adjusting or removing the axe head, from the door gap.
The large poll on the back of the axe head creates a large striking surface when used in combination with Halligans, but can also be used to force doors, smash through roofing material, walls, auto-glass, or anytime some “persuasion” is needed to get the job done.
The extended poll also helps to counterbalance the head, so that the center of gravity is within the eye/handle area of the head. This balanced axe will lay flat in an open hand, which means that there is no blade drop or “flutter” when swinging it sideways. This helps with accuracy, efficiency, and reduces fatigue or injury.
This axe will easily pull its weight on the fireground and will be an invaluable tool for trainers and student firefighters.
Axe only. Halligan is available separately.
