I don’t normally go in for celebrity-endorsed gear, but this is solid kit, no matter whose name is on it. Holds an edge beautifully, fits perfectly in a pack. Light enough that it won’t add a ton of weight on a longer trek – I love it!

This is NOT your average, run-of-the-mill camping hatchet. This thing is razor sharp, high-quality steel that comes with all the little details you’d expect from something this well made – presentation pelt and a small sharpener. As functional as it is beautiful.

This compact ax is the perfect size to fit in a backpack or on your belt for hiking. Even though it’s small, Gerber’s standards for strength and sharpness are evidenced in this ax, so you can count on its performance. It features a rubber hand grip to increase safety by reducing slippage.
