J.R. Fire Tools are wildland firefighting hand tools with patents filed that meet U.S.F.S., Cal-Fire and B.L.M. specifications. These fire tools were custom designed by a professional wildland Fire Captain with over 20 years of field experience, to provide unique and specific functions that no other wildland hand tools offer. They have large heads with 3 sharpened sides, high quality custom handles, strong universal necks, and interchangeable heads. The heads are created by a proprietary formulation, which allows the heads to hold a sharpened edge longer than other tools, reducing down time. This exclusive formulation also resists chipping and breaking, making these tools stronger and last longer than others. In addition, the J.R. Fire Tools Universal Neck was specifically designed to allow for all parts of the tools (head, neck and handles) to be fully replaceable and interchangeable. All of these features are the exclusive design of J.R. Fire Tools. All of our forest fire tools come with grade 8 nuts, bolts and lock washers. These wildland fire tools are also awesome for trail building and landscaping. "Cut Line in Less Time" with J.R. Fire Tools!
