17.5" Freescape Hatchet

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. Additionally, when not protecting its blade, the sheath for the Freescape Hatchet conveniently stores in the handle.

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.

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.

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.
