Extra Info: What is an Axe?

Manufacturer: Elwell

Tool Type: Fireman's Axe

Model No: 5122


The old Elwell fireman's axe number 5122.

The blade on this example carries the markings 'Elwell 5122' on one side and the markings 'H98, 1952' on the reverse side. This particular axe is also marked with the ministry arrow indicating the axe was used by one of the UK services.

The axe has a 390mm ash handle with an axe head fitted to it in the strap form; two straps of metal running from the head down either side of the handle. The axe head is 200mm across.

It is quite common for the axe head and handle to have marks and dents through years or use and age.

This particualr fireman's axe had a fabric blade cover, I am not sure if this was user made or originally came with the axe.
