Pro Tool Industries Woodman's Pal Military Premium / by RANGE R.A.T.S.

Back in 1941 in Pennsylvania, artist and engineer Frederick Ehrsam of Victor Tool Company saw a need for a single, well-designed tool that could clear brush and blaze trails and thin, trim, chop and prune.  The tool he designed was the Woodman's Pal.  Professionals in forestry, agriculture and horticulture quickly recognized it as an history achievement.  The U.S. Military prized the Woodman's Pal as well.  Designated the "LC-14-B", the Woodman's Pal was standard issue from the early part of WWII through Desert Storm.

Today the Woodman's Pal continues to be handcrafted right here in Pennsylvania with only the finest American-made raw materials.  And this tool is still praised by forest and land managers, surveyors, campers, hikers, hunters, soldiers, handymen, scouts, fishermen, gardeners, and outdoor enthusiasts everywhere.

The Military Premium model--designated the LC-14-B by the U.S. Military in 1941--is the top of the line.
