New from M48, the United Cutlery M48 Destroyer Tactical Axe is a masterpiece of the Stronger Sharper design that you come to expect from United Cutlery. The 2Cr13 cast stainless steel axe head has a black oxide coating to make it practically impervious. The 4 1/2 inch blade has a smooth satin finish and a razor-sharp edge. The handle is constructed of an almost indestructible injection molded nylon with a fiber fill. Special grooves are designed into the handle specifically so that paracord can be wrapped around it with ease. This tomahawk measures 406 mm (16 inches) in overall length and comes with a new and improved nylon sheath.
