The Birler tactical pack axe 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.
The blade is forged from 1055 carbon steel and is virtually indestructible. Just like those who use it. The sturdy Tennessee hickory handle ensures that the Birler won’t fold on you when the fighting gets tough.
Looking at the Birler you’d be amazed that it’s such a heavy weight when it comes to work, yet such a lightweight when it comes to carrying it into battle.
