Always was a fan of Gerber, but this one is proof that Gerber is capable of cheap craftsmanship. The issues:
1) Tang does not extend through the handle. It is fastened by two bolts/nuts at the top of the handle.
2) The handle has poor craftsmanship where the cuts were made for the bolts and nuts, though it is VERY comfortable in the hand (this is one of the tool's bright spots, in fact. Ergonomically it can't be beaten).
3) The sheath is not bad. In fact, it's even good. The hook and loop fastener strap fits the handle great. But there is ONE issue. The belt loop is positioned so that the blade of the machete sticks straight out when it's on your side, so that it's not in line with the profile of your leg, but the back edge of the blade (the saw) slaps into your leg as you walk. Why would the loop be placed here? This severely damages my opinion of an otherwise good sheath. I mean it's not really practical to carry it on your belt, which is one of the main reasons for the sheath.
4) The steel is unacceptable. It came dull, was a bear to sharpen and doesn't hold an edge worth a flip. And it came with a Godawful sticker on the blade that left a residue when I peeled it off. Applying mineral spirits to remove the adhesive resulted in dulling the black finish, which is not much more than spray-on.
5) The saw is serviceable, even better than expected given the cheap quality of the knife.
6) On the plus side, it looks badass, but looks are deceiving.

Spend a few dollars more and get a better tool. This one falls short of my expectations, though I shouldn't have let my affinity for the name brand override the fact that this is a $20 implement with a Gerber stamp on it. You do get what you pay for in this case.

I ordered 2, they arrived quickly, but for a Gerber product,the edge was almost non-exsistent. There was a burr on one side of the sharpened edge that was able to be removed with 1 or 2 passes with a diamond sharpener. After the burr was removed the edge was dull. How dull was it?..... it was so dull that I could probably balance a penny on edge on it. I'm sure my diamond sharpener would work but it will take a long time, I don't have a belt sander, so my other option is to use my bench grinder, but I'm not sure I want to go that route just yet. Will see what I can find locally for whetstones or other sharping options.

I expected the dull edge from other reviews but I still had hopes that Gerber had fixed this problem. Otherwise the blade and handle seem to be good quality. Blade attaches with 2 bolts through the forward part of the handle, sheath also seems good quality, but will have to see how much effort it takes to put a good edge on and how the sheath holds up with use.

There is a warning sticker on one side of the blade. I peeled it off one of the matchetes, tried using rubbing alchole to remove the residue, then gently scraping it off. Doing both seemed to remove most of the glue but dulled the factory finish. Will leave the sticker on the other one and see what happens after being used.

Not shown, there is a lanyard also. It goes through the hole at the end of the handle and is looped BACK OVER the handle. It is there to keep your hand from sliding forward onto the blade during use. Seems to make sense but will see how it actually works when using the matchete.

This is a compact machete, easy to tote around so it's handy when ya need it. Don't expect high end cutlery grade blade steel - it's a utility tool.... and a darn good one !

Awesome tool! Small enough to do light work but big enough to chop. Blade came very dull but with a little work on the grinder and a stone it sharpened up well. It's exactly what I've been looking for. One tool, not to big, not too small. Quality looks to be solid. Excellent price. Highly recommend this tool!

Other reviewers have hit the nail on the head, I just want to add my two cents. For this price, you can find a tool that will hold a MUCH better edge. That is my main gripe with this product.

I am not sure which stainless series this knife is composed of but it plain does not hold a good edge. This tool is useful ONLY for the lightest brush and debris. The saw is a so-so. I can spend a minute sawing through an inch of wood, or I can chop it in half with 2 blows from a quality machete.

The tang issue is not to be overlooked, as it makes me uneasy.

The sheath is excellent, but you aren't buying a tool to have a stupendous sheath right?

3 stars. It is not awful, but there are better tools out there. I opted for a 10xx steel series machete after having a few experiences with this knife.

***Edit*** 2 stars. its awful. this thing NEVER accomplished anything although I tried many times. JUNK 2 stars ONLY BECAUSE OF AWESOME HANDLE BUT WTH

When I first got this Gerber Machete Jr., I was impressed and gave it 4 stars. I liked the rubber grip handle, the construction seemed solid, the saw back seemed to be effective, and my only dissatisfaction was that it arrived with a dull blade, but no big deal.

Or so I thought.

This machete is IMPOSSIBLE to sharpen. I have gone after this thing with everything short of a belt grinder. I have sharpened knives until they shave hair and whittle paper. I have a Kukri machete that I have no problem keeping super sharp. But this Gerber is awful. I don't know what it is about the steel but none of my efforts have worked. This is my second Gerber, the first was a knife, and the steel on both of them were awful. I will never buy another Gerber product after this.
