Veteran designed, tested, and approved. Elmer Roush spent 18 months in Vietnam. So when his vision for a new axe comes to fruition, it’s inspired by more than just aesthetics. The Pack Axe is refined down to the minute details and wilderness-ready on every last level.
“Cut effectively, chop effectively.” Those are the two simple objectives Elmer Roush set out with when he took to the drawing board. From his workspace in Brasstown, North Carolina, he achieved them to a T in the Pack Axe. But it didn’t happen on the first go. Elmer’s style is all experimental—make it too big and too long, then pare down until it feels just right. Some may say it’s a bit unorthodox, but after holding the Pack Axe, we’re believers.
It’s an all-around outdoor-savvy axe with a hot forged 1060 carbon steel head complete with a hammer finish. Sitting snugly atop a highly ergonomic Tennessee hickory handle, it’s at once good looking, durable, and compact enough to be lashed to a pack for journeys miles from anywhere. A leather sheath (sold separately) completes the smart, rugged carry.
Perfectly portable, seriously serviceable, the Pack Axe is further proof that Elmer is at the top of the pack.

CRKT - ROUSH PACK AXE
This warranty covers any defects in materials or workmanship. If one of our knives ever breaks or fails because of material or manufacturing defect, we’ll repair or replace the knife.
This warranty runs as long as you own your knife. Coverage ends if you sell or otherwise transfer the knife to someone else, or if your CRKT® knife is modified in any way.
This warranty does not cover breakage or failure due to misuse of the knife. Knives as good as ours rarely break or fail because of a defect. Usually they break or fail from what we call “tool abuse”—using them for unsuitable tasks like prying or pounding. Therefore, blade tip breakage is not covered by our warranty. Use of a knife for any purpose other than cutting voids the warranty. (The exceptions to this caution are the A.B.C. Aqua and MAK-1 Multiple Access Knife which have tips designed specifically for prying.) So please match the tool to the task, and use your knife only for cutting. The knife will last longer, and you’ll be safer too. This warranty does not cover failure of mechanisms due to your failure to properly maintain them.
Also, consequential and incidental damages are not recoverable under this warranty. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of consequential damages, so this exclusion or limitation may not apply to you.
Misuse of your knife can cause serious injury or even death. It can also cause your knife to break or fail and the CRKT® limited lifetime warranty will not apply. Failure to properly maintain your knife also may cause its mechanisms to not function properly, which could result in injury to you or damage to the knife. Follow the do’s and don’ts which are included in your CRKT® knife package and the knife will last longer and you’ll be safer too.
