Gator Machete Pro
This is the top of the heap for Gerber machetes. The corrosion-resistant, multi-purpose blade can be used as an axe, machete, brush thinner or knife. The Gator grip handle and nylon lanyard keep the machete safely in your hand when in use. The sheath is made of military-grade nylon and includes a sharpening stone. It’s a durable do-it-all tool for clearing, hacking and chopping.

i have my oun landscape company and i first bought this for fun but i find my self using this on the job all the time! this thing is bad ass!!
when on the move I like to use this as a handy backup in case situations get hairy. with lives in danger on a daily bases I can easily use it to take care of walkers... love it gerber...
Wow i saw this and was what i have the same exact thing but its like 50 years old and has a leather handle that's cool they have this
I just received my Gator Pro which I purchased as part of my Bug Out Bag (BOB) arsenal. I haven't had a chance to use it, but it is hefty and solid! A great resource for the wilderness!
Was unable to penetrate zombie's skull with first blow, needed total of three hits to subdue it. Decapitation is easier but not good enough.
Other than that, grip is good, does not slip even when wet with blood and entrails.
I would recommend it with an additional knife.
I've used axes and machetes but, this is a combination of both. The balance and overall feel of it in my hand is perfect. Love it!
Not too heavy and has great edge retention. I did have some difficulty with sharpening the hook. The sharpening stone is pretty much useless so I use a sharpening puck to keep a sharp edge. The handle feels great
I've used this and must say it is a great piece of equipment
-cheaper than the woodsman pal.
this truly is a great buy, don't leave home without this thing.
The Woodsman's Pal is much better.
It feels great in your hand and holds a great edge. It's that tool you can take places where a full sized machete won't go. And that brush hook could easily double as a gut hook. It's pretty well balanced too. Not a bad investment
who needs the apoc kit when you have this
Would like to know thickness and Rockwell hardness. Thanks
Looks sharp, strong, and also very durable, good job Gerber !
The Woodsman Pal is better. Came out during WW2. This design is NOT a gerber design.
Does it come with a case/cover?
this is the best machete ever
Based loosely on the classic Woodman's Pal machete, the Gerber Machete Pro ($53) is a 16.5-inch, 18-ounce trailblazer with a large hook for clearing fallen brush. The main blade, at 10.5 inches, is made from high-carbon steel that flexes slightly. It comes with its own sharpening stone and stores nicely in its nylon sheath.
