2017 CRKT® Rune™
New tactical axe built in Viking tradition, for a 21st century battlefield.
CRKT® is releasing the Rune™ compact tactical axe. Designed by Ryan Johnson of Chattanooga, Tennessee, it’s remarkably lightweight, and what it lacks in bulk, it makes up for in versatility. When going headlong into a dicey situation, the Rune™ will lead the way.
Johnson is proud owner of RMJ Tactical, and applied his 30 years of tomahawk design prowess to come up with the Rune™. It’s infused with the practicality of a mean SWAT tactical tool, and wrapped in ancient Nordic design. With a practically indestructible 6.7” carbon steel head with a black powder finish, it’s equipped with a utility spike and a notch at the base of the head for chocking up.
To ensure exceptional grip, the handle is made with glass-reinforced nylon and has two lashing points for carrying versatility. The MOLLE compatible sheath is likewise made with glass-reinforced nylon and features a buckle strap that elevates utility. It’s ideal even if you find yourself on the battlefield in the pouring rain…or worse.
Johnson sought to create a badass showpiece that was fit for the history books. What he created was a remarkably capable contemporary take on a Viking’s best battlefield friend.
When you find yourself face-to-face with trouble, the Rune™ has your back.
The Rune™ manufacturer’s suggested retail price is $150.00
