Due to a Nationwide raw material and labor shortage, the availability of Wildland tools and replacement handles has been severely impacted and long delays are anticipated. If you are ordering out of stock tools or handles, please consider placing these on a separate order from other items to avoid the delay of non-tool items. Tool orders will be processed and filled in the order in which they are received as our stock replenishes.

Wildland firefighting hand tools with patents pending that meet U.S.F.S., Cal-Fire and B.L.M. specifications. These tools were custom designed by a professional wildland Fire Captain with nearly 20 years of experience, to provide unique and specific functions that no other hand tools offer. These newly designed hand-tools will improve firefighting performance. These heads are created with a special heat-treating process that makes them superior to other hand tools. These tools are also awesome for trail building. It's time to move dirt!

*Special thanks to U.S.F.S. (Tahoe National Forest) and Cal-Fire (Nevada-Yuba-Placer) for help in design and concept.
