The TOPS Knives F.A.X. or Fast Axe is a lightweight axe designed for campers, hikers, hunters and trekkers. The Fast Axe's head, with its wide cutting edge made of 1095 High Carbon alloy, takes a deep bite when taking down light wood, taking an animal apart, making tent poles, processing firewood, or doing a host of other outdoor chores.
It has a Chrome Moly alloy (4130) tubular handle and the head is pressed and pinned deeply into this handle. The combination exhibits strength and ductility. An 8" long EEZER foam grip ensures a solid nonslip grip for the most rugged situations. This is manufactured through a patented proprietary process and is unmatched in quality and durability.
A Kydex "snap on cover" protects the edge of the blade and has a spring steel clip for easy belt attachment. An emegency whistle and container of oil is also included.
The FAST Axe was designed by Allen Jensen, also known as "The Ax Man". Allen has designed and developed tools for his own outdoor ventures. He is a Scout leader, knife and ax designer, and has spent a great deal of time in the outdoors working with members of the Bureau of Land Management, Forest Service, and Hot Shot crews (highly trained wild land firefighters). With his practical engineering background, he uses the information he gathers, digests and analyzes it to perfect his field tools.
Allen Jensen is also known for creating the TOPS Knives Fireman's Backup which was featured on the cover of Blade Magazine SEPT 2007, and for designing a multitude of other great tools.
