CRKT Birler Pack Axe


CRKT Birler Pack Axe

The Birler™ is light enough to cut down on pack weight, yet it's still burly enough to get everything you need done on a mission.

Elmer Roush of Brasstown, North Carolina knows a thing or two about axes and life in the battle theater. He spent a fair bit of time in Vietnam. Today, in the Forged By War™ program, he's applying his 40 years of blacksmith experience as well as techniques from thousands of years ago to create exceptional tools such as the Birler.

This is an axe that won't go AWOL on you when you need to break down doors, build floors and take down tall trees to rescue a fellow soldier. The blade is forged from 1055 carbon steel and is virtually indestructible. The sturdy hickory handle ensures that the Birler won't fold on you when the fighting gets tough.
