Show Description

Bring the power of a full-sized axe to your felling, chopping, and clearing for about the weight of a hatchet. The hollow synthetic handle is light yet rugged and boasts Gerber’s famously energy-saving ergonomics. A low-friction coating lets the head slice through wood without hang-ups.

  • Forged steel head is tempered to hold an edge well.
  • Fibreglass-reinforced polymer handle is tougher and lighter than wood. It is moulded around the head for security and has a bright green element for easy finding.
  • Plastic edge guard includes a hanging handle.
