Gerber Gator Combo Axe
For the Gator-hunter in all of us, the Gerber Gator axe is a dream come true. This uniquely engineered axe is a multipurpose cutting machine, featuring a convenient knife blade housed securely and ergonomically inside the handle of the axe itself! Gerber's own patented texturized rubber lines the handle of the Gator axe for a superior grip, and is fitted over a nearly-indestructible glass-filled nylon handle. The handle also houses a magnetic stop for the knife, to ensure that your axe will perform its primary function without hassle. Forged from steel, this axe will retain an edge for a very long time, and makes the perfect accessory, whether out on the bayou or camping close to home.

In 1939 Joseph Gerber hired a local knife maker to build 25 sets of kitchen cutlery to be given as Christmas gifts. The knives were so popular that Joseph Gerber left his advertising agency to start Gerber Legendary BladesÂ®. The unique style and high quality manufacturing of Gerber cutlery soon developed wide spread acclaim. In fact, Gerber Legendary Blades are the only cutlery on display in New YorkÂs famous Museum of Modern Art.
From very early on, Gerber collaborated with top knife designers, setting a standard of quality for everyone else to follow. Renowned designers such as Al Mar, Bob Loveless, Paul Poehlmann, "Blackie" Collins, William Harsey Jr. and Ernest Emerson have all designed knives for Gerber. In 2002 this tradition continued as Gerber released the Silver TridentÂ, designed by Chief James "Patches" Watson (U.S.N. Ret.) and Bill Harsey Jr.
Today, Gerber continues to design and manufacture unique, high quality outdoor recreation products. In 2003 we are proud to introduce the next generation of multi-tools: the RecoilÂ Auto-Plier. By constantly utilizing new technology and innovative design to develop new products, Gerber continues to be an industry leader.
Awesome combo and it has been with me everyday love it
Just what I ordered. Great for hunting.
It is sharp, a good little backpacking hatchet, and splits wood very nicely. The knife was a bit smaller than I expected. I think I would probably get the one with the saw in the handle if I had to do it again.
