Description
 
We all know Jake Hoback makes some absolutely killer folders and fixed blades using the highest quality materials and state of the art development, testing and constructing methods. Well, if you expected anything different with his latest project, you would be wrong! The PROOF of Life Axe is as high-tech a piece of kit as they come, and looks absolutely wicked! Jake teamed up with PROOR Research (famous for their precision carbon fiber rifle barrels) to hash out the best uses and implementation of carbon fiber for the handle, and we can attest that they nailed it!

The axe is made from S7 steel and Unidirectional carbon fiber. Jake spent a tone of time developing and lightening the design while testing structural integrity. The end result is an axe that weight in just over a pound, with the strength of an axe double the size! S7 is known for its incredible strength and anti-shock characteristics, and the unidirectional carbon fiber handle both keep the weight down and absorbs even more vibration. The head has a unique, multi-use design. The upper edge has a longer bevel for increased toughness, with a concave edge that helps keep the axe from deflecting. The lower edge is designed for finer working and cutting, assisted with the bearded design so you can choke up on the handle. The scalloped bevels help aid in piercing. The tail of the head features a not-quite sharpened edge spike. The unidirectional carbon fibers feature a diamond texture to aid in grip without being overly aggressive. Overall, the PROOF of Life Axe is a light, strong and versatile piece of hardware! Comes with a molded kydex sheath.
