Looks like it will last a long time.

I was however able to get a sharp enough edge to where it cuts very well in the woods.
D. Schwemin
I have used it to saw down tree branches and it works well.

I ordered this item for use on trail work over the holiday break.. It was delivered on time and packaged well.
On the first day of use I encountered a vine that was blocking the trail.. On the second hack, the machete blade broke in two pieces.. This was just your typical standard tree vine.. Not a branch.. Not a tree.. Not a rock.. Not a wall..
This is completely unacceptable from a company like Gerber.

Upon close examination of the blade, it is easy to see that this is not solid steel. Its a cheap blend of metals made in China..
I DO NOT recommend this trail clearing implement for anything other than a wall mounted conversation piece..

The One star is for Amazon's great packaging, shipping and RETURN policies...

SHAME on Gerber for such an awful product.

**UPDATE**
I wrote a letter to Gerber asking why they advertise this tool as solid steel, when clearly it is not.
No reply..
This blade is made up of a cheap composite of metals..
The blade looks really cool and sheath or holder it comes with is where all the money goes to in this product, not the blade..

After spending the last 10 years of my life in and out of warzones as soldier and as a US private security contractor, I've used and relied on many Gerber tools and knives(multitools, folders, LMF-1) and respected the brand. This Gator machete looked cool and was sharp......but worthless in actual jungle and I cannot believe Gerber put their name on it.

Unfortunately my $6 machete from the local Costa Rica hardware store has turned out to be much more durable and reliable brush cutter and jungle path maker. In Costa Rica using a machete is a way of life for many locals. They're used for jungle clearing, grass cutting, shrubbery and bush trimming and even chopping branches off of trees. After getting this awesome looking machete in the mail, paying an additional 20$ in customs and mail forwarding fees, it lasted about 10 minutes in the thick jungle before getting large dings in the blade. The blade was actually getting BENT! With my 6 dollar local machete I can cut down small trees(and I wasn't even doing that with this Gerber one!). The Gator Machete steel is either far too too soft or too thin.

I loved the handle, the design and the tree saw on the back, but is Gerber aware aware that this blade does not hold up when "fending for yourself" in thick jungle? I'd be happy to field test an update if they ever develop an update.

I emailed sale and customer service. They offered me a replacement. Unfortunately, I don't want an addition worthless soft machete in my garage. I hope they put a little more time into the Bear Grylls survival machete. God bless Chinese junk.....

If you need more detail than what's in the title...
This machete was very sharp when I received it. But I did notice that it was ground to a very shallow bevel angle... More on that below. It cuts well right out of the box; the blade has enough heft to give it momentum, but it's still thin enough to be slightly flexible and not too heavy. The handle is a firm-but-grippy rubber which is very comfortable. The saw on the back of the blade, which I assumed would be a joke, actually has well-formed teeth and cuts pretty well! The handle isn't shaped properly for any extensive use of the saw, but for occasional use, it's not a complete waste.
HOWEVER:
The metal in the blade is soft! On the plus side, this means it's easy to sharpen. On the down side, it means the blade gets dinged, dented, and "divoted" way too easily! No, I haven't been bashing rocks, trying to cut down metal posts, digging in the dirt, or anything else like that. I'm very familiar with appropriate uses of a machete (I use it as a rough tool, but don't abuse it!), and NONE of the other machetes I've used have blades this soft. I used this Gator machete for clearing brush, limbing small trees, and hacking weeds. Never heard/felt that distinctive "clank" of blade on rock. Within just a few hours of this (appropriate) use, there were several minor "ripples" in the blade, and a couple more major chunks taken out of the edge. From hacking wood/brush?!? Yikes! This edge failure is apparently due to the very thin edge (shallow grinding angle) and the softness of the steel itself. The rest of the blade was still quite sharp, but these deformations were a hassle to file out. I sharpened it and kept working, but now the blade is almost serrated. Still usable, but really, a decent tool shouldn't do this.

I have had one of these blades for about 2 years now. I have used it to cut branches over 2" in diameter and clear lots of thick underbrush and cane. I have basically beat the crap out of it for 2 years and it has not bent or broken whatsoever. I would like it better if it was US made, but that is just a conceit on my part. i would also like it if it was a little thicker and harder steel, so i could put a better more convex edge on it (more like a sword), but for what i paid for it at Academy Sports...it does a great job.

If you really understand how to use an edged weapon properly, you should have no problem taking down any reasonable sized brush with this blade. I keep it (and a small 2lb axe) under the seat of my truck 24/7 in case I need to clear out some brush on a trail, etc. but this is much lighter than the axe to carry if you have to leave the truck. I would have no issue taking this into the backcountry on a survival preparedness expedition. That being said, I never go anywhere without at least two devices for cutting down medium sized to large wood, so this machete is never the only tool that I have to cut wood. But i would feel the same way no matter how well it was manufactured.

Lastly, of the two Gerber Gator machetes I fell that this is the one to buy, the jr model is too short to really get the job done IMHO, go for the big guy.
