Based on the famous Filipino cutting tool, Gerber's Gator Bolo Machete is a real beast of a machete. Its "fat" end works to give you serious forward momentum while swinging the blade so that you can cut heavy vegetation or slice coconuts and melons with ease. You may not have jungle brush to clear in your backyard, but this machete works just as well in less tropical conditions. Made of 1055 carbon steel with a full-tang construction, this machete can withstand heavy impacts with ease, making it perfect for chopping trees or firewood as well. Its ergonomic Gator Grip handle ensures that hot and humid conditions won't slow you down. Includes a nylon sheath featuring a belt loop and d-loop for easy carrying.
|Blade Material||Carbon steel (1055)|

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.
