Fire fighters have been utilizing axes to battle flames for centuries. Besides water, the axe maybe one of a fire fighter’s most important pieces of equipment. Now we have taken this utility tool and made it into a ceremonial tribute. Our Firefighter Bronze Axe and Display Plaque (item #AT1819) has a rich, dark walnut mounting board that measures over 3 feet long. The traditional axe has a smoothly sanded handle created from hickory wood, and the bronze axe head has an ornamental Maltese Cross. A black and gold engraving plate comes attached to the walnut mounting board, and our graphic artists will etch insignia and other artwork on the plate. They can also fit up to six lines of text on the plate. All engraving is free of charge, and there is no charge for shipping this handsome award. Our Firefighter Bronze Axe and Display Plaque makes the perfect tribute to the fire fighter of the year, to the person performing an act of bravery in the line of duty, or to a retiring member of the fire house.
