With this universal handle each fire fighter now enjoys a range of versatility never before possible. The handle has a special cone collar that transfers stress to a wide oval mass of wood for great strength. The size and shape of the handle then distributes stress throughout the entire handle, rather than simply at the place where the metal meets the wood, as with traditional handles.
This is a lot more durable. There is a stainless steel, spring-loaded latching pin held in place by a stainless allen screw. The latching pin locks the handle to the various tool heads.
