Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. In very good condition, this is the real thing: a CRASH AXE used by Air Crewmen to break out of damaged aircraft. Heavy hard Rubber permanently attached handle cover with large curved blade axe head with a straight spike protruding rearward. Measures 15 1/4 inches long, with a 8 inch long head. The quarter-circle cutting head has large teeth near the top, which helmed cut through metal more effectively. This style of axe was used by American bomber crews during WWII and after. This example is not dated, but is marked with U.S. Military Reference number on the rubber handle: 56D6221.

The handle is covered with thick rubber, intended to insulate the user from electrical shocks. Getting out of the aircraft would often involve cutting through live electrical circuits, and it was also possible that the aircraft might become tangled in electrical lines. With this rubber handles, the crewmen did not need to worry about being electrocuted.

In fine operational condition and ready to display.
