Mont Vernon, N.H. – -(Ammoland.com)- Although axes have been used throughout history as a tool and weapon, little has changed over the millennia in its design. For today’s first responders, military and law enforcement professionals, the axe is still a primary tool for rescue, breaching and survival scenarios. Outland Equipment designs and manufactures state-of-the-art axes and knives specifically engineered to meet the critical demands of those that go in harms’ way.

“A go-to tool for responding to emergency situations,” Chris Aiston, CEO of Outland Equipment, said. “We design these tools for those who operate in harsh environments where failure means disaster. They cut, pound and pry, facilitating structure and vehicle forcible entry and egress. Whatever a first responder requires his tool to do, the MMA series is there to complete the mission and save lives.”

Outland has produced three Multi-Mission Axes (MMA) that not only perform the requirements of an axe, but also integrate other functionality including hammering, prying, cutting seatbelts, cutting sheet metal and working with hex fasteners. The MMA 1502, 1902 and 1503 are all made from a single piece of hardened S7 tool steel, a steel formulated to withstand extreme shock and impact.

The head of the MMA series features a 3.9 inch cutting edge with a bolt-on hammer and hex nut tool. The MMA 1502 and 1503 are 15 inches in length, a size convenient for carry and maneuvering in tight spaces. The MMA 1902 with its 19 inch length provides enhanced reach, impact force and leverage. The tail of the MMA 1502 and 1902 feature an angled pry bar, seatbelt cutter and sheet metal cutter. The MMA 1503 tail features an angled pry bar, seatbelt cutter and a hex wrench for urban and residential environments.

The handle grips are made of G10 material, a fiberglass-based epoxy resin that is not only extremely rugged but also impervious to moisture and chemicals, important factors for rescue operators. The handle has been shaped to offer the operator multiple hand positions to optimize a positive grip for the job.

All of Outland’s MMA axes are covered with a Modular Sheath that allows for easy access, quick deployment and multiple carry options. The axe is secured in the sheath using an internal latch and two BioThane® Coated Webbing straps. Carry options are endless for the operator, as the Modular Sheath accepts accessories for mounting on a belt or MOLLE gear, can be bolted to a vehicle or worn on a shoulder strap.

    1. Not a lot of budgets that can afford this. Nice idea but needs to be a little bit of consideration to the poor folks. Somebody come up with one that is cheaper and it will sell. If they could make one that would fold up and fit in a carry case on your side it would be very good.

    2. The Outland is not a local hardware or sporting goods store axe, boys. This is a top quality, full-tang American made S7 tool steel axe that replaces over 6+ individual tools in your kit setup. Sure it costs, but cry one, buy once! This is more of a breaching tool than a fireman’s axe, but it is light enough to provide plenty of options for those in the military, police and even firefighters/first responders. I believe Gideons Tactical has a pretty solid video review on this. Great stuff – as long as you need this type of tool. If you don’t, the go for a $30 polymer handled job. At least you’ll look cool, right?

    3. If I can’t do what I need to do with my roll of duct tape, and bailing wire, and my buck knife, well it don’t need to be done.
      I can skin a deer, and run a trot line cuz a country boy can survive. Good “ol” Hank Jr.

    4. Very well designed, engineered and built. I was ready to order it until I saw the cost. YIKES!! Thatt’s so pricey that I can’t see anyone but those with unlimited budget affording it. Any chance there is a scaled-down version that might be less that the cost of several dozen other tools?

    5. Got one very similar for about 25.00 including tax . Does the same thing as higher priced one pretty cool though

    6. I’m trying to figure out the niche for this. It’s too small for fire department use and to expensive for gear junkies of normal guy type. I do like the sheath though
