With a classic multi-purpose design, this machete has an impressive 17.9 inch full tang blade that is evenly weighted and precision grinded for minimal exertion. Confidently secured by the Gator Grip handle, paracord lanyard, and sheath, go into the wild prepared.
Built with full tang construction, the Bush is Gerber’s version of the classic multi-purpose design. The Gator Bush Machete’s sturdy handle wrapped in the classic Gerber Gator Grip keeps it snug in your hand while being leveled at underbrush. This knife expertly helps you manage the workload in record time for better results using comparatively little effort.
SLICE THROUGH VEGETATION
With a long, straight blade designed to be evenly weighted, the robust Bush Machete does it all. From chopping to clearing a path in the bush, this blade is ready for the task. The Gator Grip texture on the handle keeps it secure, and the ergonomic shape makes it comfortable for extended use. Clear brush to prevent wildfires, maintain trails, spruce up a garden area, and trim hedges and orchards with the butter-smooth low-friction surface of this machete. Its hardened steel is constructed with a precision grind to cut with minimal exertion, allowing for less body strain and greater efficiency.
LONG TERM STRENGTH
Lightweight for easy maneuvering, the solid handle of the Gator Bush Machete is built for the long-term life of this axe. It includes a unique, adjustable paracord safety lanyard and a high quality sheath. The sheath features dual D-loops and a belt loop for multiple carry options.
Have two of these, one on an ATV and one on a UTV, both have held up well and have performed as expected doing both ranch work and for hunting. What was surprising is when I contacted Gerber about the sheaths' belt loops and Velcro straps had deteriorated, they sent me two new ones. Thanks Gerber for the service.
i have this one...
sharpning was good, but the hardness of blade was......SUCKS....
i used geber product for long time and i don't use my knife tough.
i think my one is defective product.
After buying every blade available on the store shelf in the last 20 years of being an avid mountain man, this blade is OUTSTANDING!
With proper care it will last more then just my lifetime. Its high quality steel that you just can't fake. The hollow ground being the proverbial cherry, it took down a 5 inch maple tree in one swing.
For anyone that has cut up a deer carcass they know what happens to a low quality machete. This is far from low quality.
Sorry Bear Grills, your parang was just no good.
Camillus, yours was too short, heavy, & thick.
And don't put a saw on the back, it defeats the purpose of using a machete. That to me says that you know it sucks so we tried to make up for it.
This blade has the look of a well done orienta style blade it is light and durable my favorite of the outdoor blades. Price is very reasonable and would make any survivalist feel like a ninja.
