CRKT Cimbri Axe, 26" Overall, 4" 1055 Carbon Steel Blade, Wood Handle - 2747
Ancient form meets contemporary function. With deep roots in 8th century weaponry, the Cimbri two-handed camp axe mimics lines, balance, and heft of its medieval counterpart. But unlike the Frankish axe, its primary adversary is a stout log.
Veteran and designer Elmer Roush was perusing the weapons collection in the British Museum when he was struck by an ancient Frankish axe. Inspired by the flawless intersection of artful lines and powerful usability, he set out to create a modern camp and mission-ready version and name it after the Germanic people that challenged the ancient Roman Republic. The result: a hot-forged carbon steel axe head sculpted for a balanced swing and a deep bite. Paired with the ergonomic Tennessee hickory handle, it's ready to do right by its heritage.
An ancient axe paved the way for the contemporary powerhouse that is the Cimbri.
