I am very satisfied with my Gator. I have it with me everyday when i am in the wood. I have maid it so i can carry the gator on my back. The saw blade are really sharp, but i had to tighten the handle. Keep up the good work on developing new blades.
Partial tang, mounted by two poor bolts to a plastic handle, broke blade off handle on first use. Will only survive the lightest duty cutting or chopping. Beware- the 'safety lanyard' will ensure you have a good grip on that crap handle as the 18 inch blade flies off in a random direction.
What a crock. Wish I could give negative stars. Will not be purchasing or recommending Gerber products ever again.
I love this machete but the tip chipped, i wonder if i can get a replacement.
It is a machete. Machete are not suppose to be Sharp it uses the weight of the blade to cut. I love that Machete one you know how to use it you can cut a 4 inch tree.
Always been fond of gerber... However, I was very disappointed with the Gator. As mentioned in a previous review the blade does come extremely dull, so that needed to be sharpened before heading out. Also, within an hour of walking the belt loop on the shealth tore off. The store where the Gator was purchased will not take it back because it has been used. Hopefully after contacting Gerber this can be replaced. In my opinion this is a good item for the price, just expected more from these guys!
I have bought many Gerber blades and always have had no complaintes about them, however this Gator Machete came extremely dull, almost a flat edge on it... Im sure once i get it sharpened it will preforme fine but you guys should watch your quality controll alittle close so blades like that dont get out and start to give you a bad reputation
It's pretty good i guess. As you seen in last night's premier of Walking Dead when i put this thing right through the skull of that zombie in the church it really holds up well. Perfect quiet, melee weapon in a zombpoc type situation.
I have a Gerber Gator machete one of my friends got me with his discount wher he gets supplies for his work with his discount it cost me $25. I used it this spring in the woods cutting brush on the paths we have to walk to get to the hunting blind. Then m
This machete is perfect for brush cutting and sapling removal, and the saw blade is great for cutting through branches of all sizes.
