When assembled into its various configurations, the tool is full size, strong, and reliable. Unassembled, the ax and attachments are remarkably compact. They can be stored easily in disaster preparedness supply caches or on any emergency response vehicle or military vehicle. The system incorporates seven hand tools into one unit. The attachments are quickly locked into a beveled socket on the back of the ax head for use. They are further secured with a hitch pin or thumbscrew and bar for safety. When not in use, they are kept in a sturdy carrying case that has strap handles and pack loops. The entire unit, including the ax, weighs 12 pounds, and fits together for one-handed transportability.
