A new take on integrated design, the Gerber Gator II Combo Axe is a tool for adventure and all-weather conditions. Made with a longer handle than the original Gator, the Gator II ups the ante to bring you more potential force for striking.
The handle of the Gator II is constructed of glass-filled nylon, and then covered in Gerber's patented Gator texturing, making for a more secure grip in wet and muddy weather conditions. The Gator II's innovative integrated design features a coarse blade handsaw housed inside the handle of the axe.
The saw is held in place magnetically, so you don't have to worry about separation mid-swing, and its rugged and lightweight construction is perfect for sawing branches and brush. Includes ballistic nylon sheath.
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 Blades®. 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 York�?s 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 Trident�?, 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 Recoil�? Auto-Plier. By constantly utilizing new technology and innovative design to develop new products, Gerber continues to be an industry leader.
