This is the top of the heap for Gerber machetes. The corrosion-resistant, multi-purpose blade can be used as an axe, machete, brush thinner or knife. The Gator grip handle and nylon lanyard keep the machete safely in your hand when in use. The sheath is made of military-grade nylon and includes a sharpening stone. It's a durable do-it-all tool for clearing, hacking and chopping.
