Gerber axes are built with an eye to hurdling trouble. Whether it’s for camping, on a work site for hard labor, or puttering in the backyard, the Axe, like the original Gerber Axe, is light in the handle and tough in the blade, serving its owner with the excellence that modern technology and good steel have combined to deliver.
One of the benefits of the Axe is its solid, easy swing. Coupled with a super-sharp blade made of hardened forged steel possessing excellent edge retention, this axe will chop up to three times deeper than average and provide for greater productivity, which spells out savings in time, effort, and strain on the body of its operator. The tactile grip of the nylon handle contributes to relief of body strain, too, as well as improved control during each swing.
Coated with a low-friction surface, the blade of this axe slices through wood without sticking, while its well-engineered head splits wood cleanly. Built to last, the Axe has a tough glass-filled nylon handle with a comfortable, grippable soft touch over-mold and a stainless steel blade that is hardened and forged, equating to edge retention that well outpaces traditional axe blades.
