Gerber Gator Jr Machete Review

Updated on August 31, 2014

The run down

This is a light and versatile machete with a smooth blade on one side and a saw blade on the other. It has a nice rubber grip that is comfy and the safety lanyard keeps your hand from jumping over the blade.

Did I mention it's lightweight and is easy to store in a day-pack.

Various Uses

Machetes are great for light clearing of brush, vines and the like which may obstruct passage through highly grown up trails and paths. This one features a saw blade on one side for removing branches that are to big to chop with the smooth blade. Remember this is not an ax. I have used machetes throughout my life and have usually bought the cheaper ones. I have used them camping, hiking, hunting and during my military operations.

This particular tool feels great in the hand; as if you were born with it already attached. Gerber is on their game with this tool. While it can be used as a weapon; it's primary purpose is a tool or implement to assist in outdoor living/ recreation. I am in no way advocating any violent usage except for clearing vines and brush from your path.

Hiking and Camping

AHHH, the great outdoors!!! Ouch, oh, wait a minute....

Tired of those hold a second vines that do just that. You need a versatile and lightweight tool that is strong enough to take on the challenge at hand. Watch my video review of the product that I think is right for everyday excursions in the great outdoors.

These tools are great for camping when you need some firewood or for work around the campsite. I have been an outdoor enthusiast for years; especially thanks to Uncle Sam!! But this is one tool I wish I had in my gear bag a long time ago.
