The S13 Shrike is a shorter version of the full size 15" Shrike, the shorter handle provides room to work in tighter spaces.
RMJ specializes in designing and producing tomahawks for a wide variety of uses and situations and the S13 embodies that ethos as much or more than any other model. The S13 Shrike is a high-performance, spiked tomahawk that fits in wherever it is needed. The Shrike is a great outdoor adventure tomahawk for hikes and camping, and a robust first responder breach and extraction tool. If necessary, the Shrike is able to cut electrical wires, breach an electric vehicle or work around live wires. It hearkens to the RMJ mantra of one tool, many tasks. The tomahawk features a 3” forward facing edge that is razor sharp, combined with a 3" distal tapered spike that can be used for digging, shattering tempered glass, breaching windshields, penetrating sheet metal, hacking through concrete and wood or even breaking chains and hardened padlocks. RMJ makes an effort to create tools that always keep you prepared for anything when you are in the field, whether the situation is a serious emergency or exploring the next vista to watch a killer sunset.
What sets the S13 apart from other tools is the 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 S13 Shrike 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.
