AbstractA fire fighter's axe and sling combination is disclosed. The sling is attached to the wooden axe handle by two bands wrapped tightly around the handle at two spaced positions. It has been observed that fire fighter's axes are habitually exposed to abuse and rough treatment because of the emergency conditions which prevail during their use of the axe. The handles frequently break along lines disposed about 10 to 20 degrees to the longitudinal axis of the handle at the usual location of fracture. The bands pass around the handle at a position to reinforce the handle. A slot for receiving the sling is disposed adjacent the ends of the handle so that the sling will not interfere with the use of the axe and the firefighter can grasp the handle with the sling in the slot with no inconvenience.
