CRKT's "Rune" is a modern tactical axe with bold, age-old Viking spirit. When going headlong into a dicey situation, the Rune will lead the way. Celebrated cutlery designer Ryan Johnson of RMJ Tactical created the Rune in his Chattanooga, Tenn., shop, using his 30 years of tomahawk design experience to spawn a unique tactical axe modeled after old Nordic weaponry. But make no mistake - the Rune is no historic reproduction. Feeling most at home on a modern SWAT vest, the Rune is infused with the practicality of a mean tactical tool, and simultaneously wrapped in ancient Nordic style and form. The Rune is remarkably lightweight, and what it lacks in bulk, it makes up for in versatility. The corrosion-resistant, black powder-coated head features a utility spike and a notch for choking up. To ensure exceptional grip, the handle is made of glass-reinforced nylon and has two lashing points for carrying versatility. The included MOLLE compatible sheath is equipped with a buckle strap that further elevates utility. When you find yourself face-to-face with trouble, rest assured the CRKT Rune Tactical Axe has your back!
