The 5.11 VTAC Operator Axe is a multifunctional tactical tool designed to offer the convenience of a hammer, axe and ruler all in one sleek design. The device looks like an axe at first glance, but subtle tweaks in the shape and features allows the tool to double up in function without compromising on slender shape and simplicity.

The device was created by Kyle Lamb that drew inspiration from a similar amalgamated tool found in Iraq. The axe features a slender ruler with measurement increments depicted along the side for handy use when measuring is needed. The top portion features a super sharp blade complete with a hexagonal hammer head at the back. The end of the axe can be used as a wrench and pry bar as well.
