Gerber Gator Golok Machete, Black GFN Handle, Black Plain w/Sheath
The Gator Golok Machete is Gerber's version of the classic design. It is built with full-tang construction for strength while chopping. The thickness and grind of the blade provides high resistance to sticking in green wood. Traditionally used in SE Asia for agricultural purposes, the Gator Golok is well suited for any number of tasks. Its Gator Grip textured handle keeps it secure, and the ergonomic shape makes it comfortable for extended use. It includes a unique, adjustable paracord safety lanyard, and a high quality sheath that features dual D-loops, is MOLLE compatible, and has a belt loop for multiple carry options.

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.
