During a head-to-head battle with Mother Nature, the Persevere is the ultimate secret weapon.
This 5-in-1 survival tool becomes a splitting wedge, knife, axe, chisel, and adze. Even in an arena full of variables, don’t let anyone tell you you’re not prepared for anything.
This innovation comes fresh off the bench of bushcraft master Charles Cook of Dundee, Oregon. If there’s anyone that understands the tools that make a difference when the name of the game is survival of the fittest, it’s this guy. He’s graduated from several outdoor survival schools and is a voice of authority in many online bushcraft forums.
The Persevere is built to be the ultimate survival tool—it’s lightweight, easy to pack, and dangerously powerful when it’s put into action by a skilled survivalist. The black powder coated axe head features glass filled nylon pins and an edge protector. Find the right branch, and it becomes the ideal tool for building shelter, collecting firewood, and whatever else you might need to accomplish when you find yourself in a backwoods pinch. At the end of the day, it all neatly packs away into a woven polyester sheath with a low-profile belt loop.
Never question your preparedness ever again after the Persevere makes its way into your pack.

The axe blade included with this kit is sharpened. Please handle with care to avoid inadvertent cuts or injuries.
We recommend that you assemble the tool at least once at home before taking the kit with you on your next outing.
As noted in the instructions, use only live green fresh wood branch for tool assembly. Rotten wood is unsafe and unfit for tool usage. Nothing off the forest floor. Use extra care in driving the sharpened axe wedge into the end of the branch that will serve as the axe handle. Please ensure that the branch remains intact after the three-inch slot has been made. If either side of the slot is not stable, please select another branch and start over. Once the axe is assembled, check the paracord to ensure it is tightly wound and check that the axe blade is secured in a fixed position. If the blade is loose, you need to retighten the assembly. If the blade is not secured in a fixed position, the axe could come apart in use and cause injury to yourself or others.
