My Fire Dept was training with the county guys the other day and I ended up getting to use one of their LT's personal fire axes. After I got to use it I fell in love with that axe. It would go through anything and felt great. It was shorter than our standard axes, I wanna say 28" and the axe head itself had a much larger chopping surface area than a standard axe. I'm guessing it was for logging. I've searched all over the net with no luck so I'm starting to believe this was a built tool which many FFs in the county are known for, engineering their own stuff. If that's the case I still am unable to find that particular style axe head anywhere. Any help?

I's not a firefighter and I have no idea, but I want one.

If what you saw was a ax with a flat back large head it's probably a Collins 5lb ax we use them out here for logging! 24in handle just right for driving wedges in your back cut.

Why not call him up and ask him where he got it?
