RMJ Tactical L13 Loggerhead

RMJ Tactical L13 Loggerhead
RMJ Tactical is the creation of Ryan M Johnson, a blacksmith who has been continually refining his trade, refreshing his passion and bringing the best-forged tomahawks on the market. He has over 24 years of experience, not just in forging, but also in the history and practical application of the tomahawk in both a civilian and military aspect. Every design that leaves the shop has been meticulously thought out and planned to provide their customers with the best option their money can buy. One great aspect about the shop is that is a family environment with some of the coolest people around. We love carrying makers such as RMJ because you are not only getting a product from them, but you are also receiving an outstanding customer service guarantee. Whether you are purchasing one of their tools for fun, outdoor use or truly tactical applications, you can rest easy knowing you have bought one of the best pieces of kit on the market and will not fail you when you need it most. Modern day blacksmiths such as Ryan continue to shape steel at their will and push the boundaries of what steel can offer in the end result.

The L13 is a 13" version of the 15" Loggerhead, the smaller profile allows the tool to perform in tighter spaces. 

RMJ specializes in designing and producing tomahawks for a wide variety of uses and situations and the Loggerhead embodies that ethos as much or more than any other model. The L13 Loggerhead is a high-performance hammer poll tomahawk that fits in wherever it is needed. It's a great outdoor adventure tomahawk for hikes and camping, and a robust first responder breach and extraction tool. If necessary the Loggerhead can cut electrical wires, breach an electric vehicle or work around live wires. It harkens to the RMJ mantra of one tool, many tasks. The tomahawk features a 3” forward facing edge that is razor sharp, combined with a hammer poll that can be used for great amounts of hammering force when needed. The head will work for shattering tempered glass, breaching windshields, penetrating sheet metal, hacking through concrete and wood, and many other heavy duty applications. RMJ makes an effort to create tools that keep you prepared for anything when out in the field, whether that's a serious emergency situation or a day hike with friends. 

What sets the L13 apart from other tools is the insulated rubber over-molded handle. The advantage of such a design is not only a great grip but vibration reduction and that fact that the handle is insulated. The L13 has been tested to provide insulation up to 2,000 volts. If the tool is being used to chop through a wall and happens to connect with a live electrical wire, a good degree of protection exists from getting electrocuted. The butt end of the grip features a cap that screws off to gain access to a small storage compartment. The ax features a Tungsten Cerakote finish for corrosion and wear resistance and a low visibility look. Included is a molded, bottom-eject kydex sheath and low-ride M.O.C. straps.
