BLUF: The can opener on the rear portion of these is wicked. Makes for an effective man or vehicle portable extraction tool.
We had a few of these customized Winkler Medical Axes left over from another project. This version features full sculpted rubber vs partial cord wrap.
Use the rear spike to puncture metal, then insert can opener and begin to filet it open to gain access. Ideal for first responders, and SAR Team members.
Last photo is a stock version of the Medical Axe.
