This evolved hatchet features efficient strength in a slim profile. With a new black PTFE coating on the blade and a unique grind technique, the steel blade is sharper than ever. Expect clean cuts far longer than average from this smart axe, for use at the campsite and beyond.
Featuring an innovative easily-removed sheath that maintains a slim profile, the 17.5" Freescape Hatchet serves well in its capacity as a rough, ready, and clever tool in the Gerber Freescape series.
TACKLE ANY CAMPSITE DUTY
With a forged steel head that’s world class in strength, and a design that ensures efficient and reliable chopping, the 17.5" Freescape Hatchet can tackle a myriad of campsite duties. Create kindling for the fire, pound in tent stakes, or make a primitive shelter with ease. Coated with a low-friction surface, the hardened blade slices through wood at a greater than average depth, allowing for faster chopping and maximum overall performance efficiency.
BRIGHT ACCENTS FOR QUICK VISUAL ID
Keep the 17.5" Freescape Hatchet’s solid composite handle with soft touch over-mold firmly and comfortably in the hand no matter the conditions. With bright green accents juxtaposed against the black glass-filled nylon of the handle, it draws just the right amount of attention to itself so as not to get left behind.
It works great I wood bye it twice
I agree with this lad, a hatchet is meant to be compact and portable it is essentially a compact Axe. But honestly its amazing I've had mine for a few months now and its great please make an X7 style sheath to purchase
nice up-alt to the X7, but the cover is a joke. you've forgotten that the sheath is the primary method of attaching this to a pack/belt/carry. go back to the X7-style sheath and you've got a 5-star tool here.
