First Edition Products® Annouces the Introduction of "Unbreakable" Hand Tools for Fire/Rescue & Contrstruction Trades

First Edition Products® announces the introduction of “unbreakable” hand tools for Fire/Rescue and the Construction trades. These products complement their popular lines of specialty saw blades (Power Twister®, Power Ripper, Power Chopper, Universal Tungsten Carbide) and unique electronic tools (DrillSpotter®, Metal Detector).

The hand tools line currently includes fireman’s axes and wrecking bars, with a selection of quality European-made sledge hammers to be available in the fall.

The fireman’s axes (pick-head type) are available in standard 6 lb and 8 lb weights with virtually “unbreakable” fiberglass handles that do not splinter or break like wood. Heavy-duty wrecking bars are available in the popular goose-neck and the unique “T-type”, or double-claw, styles. Both are constructed of high carbon steel with hexagonal shank for superior strength and grip. Available in 12”, 24”, and 36” lengths.

Traditional European-style sledge hammers (made in Italy) are coming soon. European design features a more compact head with a larger striking surface area than found on sledge hammers typically sold in the U.S. Hammers will be available in popular weights of 2, 6, 8, and 10 pounds. Sledge hammers will also have “unbreakable” handles of yellow plastic-coated fiberglass, but with a black rubber grip.
