NEMO Equipment Is Your Link to Outland Equipment Axes

Thursday, February 26th, 2015

MMA 1901 and MMA 1501

The Axe
After two years of intense development and testing, Outland Equipment unveiled its first multi-purpose tools: the Point Man Axe, the FireFighter Axe and the Multi-Mission Axe. The PMA is a specialized combat instrument for LE and Special Operations Forces, built to hold an edge and withstand the rigors of battle. The FFA and MMA are forcible entry tools, with optimized materials and features for cutting and prying through just about anything in your path. The FFA and MMA have unique engineering that allows for interchangeability in the axe head. A range of different components are being developed now that will be able to mount on the back side of the axe head. Outland is committed to setting a new standard of quality and innovation in tools for combat, rescue and survival. The MMA tools are currently in stock.

Axe Sheaths

Multi-Mission Axe Features:
-19 and 15 inch versions are available
-Full tang S7 steel construction (S7 is an exceptionally durable steel that can withstand the stresses encountered during impacts and maintain a sharp blade edge)
-G10 handle grips
-Multiple grip positions
–Bottom, for swinging the blade and hammer
–Middle, at the finger notch, for more controlled use of the blade
–Top, on the forward angled grip, for fine manipulation of the blade and an off-axis grip for controlling the pry and seatbelt cutter
-4 inch chopping blade
-Modular S7 steel hammer
–Specialized accessories will be available that mount in place of the hammer, making the axe configurable for different missions
-Pry feature at the bottom of the handle uses the entire length of the handle for leverage
-Seat belt cutter is positioned at the bottom of the handle to extend reach into vehicles
-Hex nut tools in the head and pry end
-A CNC machined high strength Delrin blade guard is included. A highly engineered, MOLLE compatible, belt-worn, CNC machined Delrin sheath is available as an accessory.
-All axes come in a custom zippered case

The Connection
I was introduced to Outland Equipment’s axes by Cam Brensinger, of NEMO Equipment. I’ve known Cam for several years and he has always impressed me by his innovation and dedication to quality. I know the standard he sets for himself so when he decides to present another brand alongside NEMO I know it is going to be something special. I asked him about how this had taken place and he said this:

“We were introduced to Outland through our connections in the industry,” said Cam Brensinger, NEMO’s founder and CEO, “and I was immediately struck by the design of these tools. The quality of execution is the best I’ve seen. I felt a partnership with Outland would give us another strong solution to offer our customers alongside our own Shield™ products, and it would give Outland the connections they need to increase visibility in the SOF community.” NEMO has agreed to be the exclusive distributor of Outland products to U.S. Special Operations. If you’re an active duty member of SOF, please contact NEMO for best pricing: [email protected]

The Maker
Now that we have established the bonafides, let’s talk about Outland Equipment. Outland Equipment was founded by Christopher Aiston to provide people with the tools they need to survive and save lives in hostile environments. For the past 10 years, Chris has been a design consultant to companies that manufacture firearms and accessories. He built relationships in the law enforcement and fire fighting communities and discovered that firefighters are typically heavily burdened by carrying around single-purpose tools. It was clear that firefighters needed a streamlined, lightweight, multi-purpose tool that could be carried at all times. This new solution would need to withstand the harsh environments firefighters work in, and prove to be useful every day on the job, across a wide range of applications. Once development began on the tools, it quickly became apparent that these new tools could also benefit law enforcement and armed forces. That’s where the military focus came into play. Cam at NEMO saw the designs and new that they would be a perfect fit for the SOF community.

They tell us they like to trust, but verify their manufacturer’s claims going on to state, “If we are going to equip guys going into harm’s way, the gear better perform as advertised first time, every time. That said, we present the baddest night vision scope on the block: the Magnus D790. Rated up-to/including .50 BMG and proven by our own field testing.”
