This Awesome ‘Operator Axe’ Can Solve Any Situation
24 tools and functions, one badass piece of steel.
Produced in collaboration with Iraq War veteran Kyle Lamb of Viking Tactics, 5.11’s Operator Axe ($160) can help you pound, pry, twist and chop your way out of almost any situation.
Just 15 inches long and less than two pounds even with its two-piece ambidextrous sheath attached, this MOLLE-compatible multi-tool is easy to carry along. And with two dozen functions, you’ll be glad you did.
Built into this solid, one-piece stainless steel tool are a serious hammer, pry bar and bearded axe in the head and a sheetmetal-cutting tool at the other end. Within the handle, you’ll find sockets and both standard and metric markings and wrenches.
Its jimped shaft will give you a reliable grip, whether you’re looking to tighten bolts, pry open a door, bust through a window or cut up kindling for the evening fire. Basically, it’s everything you ever wanted in an axe.
