I usually steer away from gimmicky items, but I trust the Gerber brand and was impressed by the positive reviews here and elsewhere.
Two small details kept it from a 5 Star rating. The handle 'feels' an inch or two too long, and the heel of the axe is enclosed in the scabbard.
The first complaint is personal and not a big deal at all.
I camp quite a bit (Boy Scout leader). I use a hand axe as a light hammer as much as I use it to hack wood. Having the heel exposed in the scabbard allows hammer use while keeping the 'business end' safely enclosed.
I'll overcome that by being careful.
It's very light weight. Mine was sharp enough out of the box. Saw is way more useful than I first imagined.
It's comforting to know that replacement saws are available. Nice touch from a quality brand.
Well recommended.

I bought this to use when camping/hiking/hunting. I has proven useful and much more durable than the standard wooden handle model. My kids haven't broken it yet and it shows no rust! The saw is good for small camping/woods tasks like removing small limbs that are in the way.
My only small complaint is that is hard to find when you drop it in the dark and the texture of the handle somehow keeps reflective tape (my solution to finding it in the dark) from sticking very well. I ended up putting on a bright colored lanyard.
Overall, a good practical addition. I will probably buy another one to keep in my truck.

I loved this axe the moment I put it to use for clearing brush. The weight in the head is nice and allows you to get much more out of your swing than using a machete. This axe will blow through trees and branches that are 1"-3" with no problem at all. If you want to take on anything bigger you need to use a bigger axe or saw. The edge will need to be touched up every other day or so of continual use as long as you are not chopping rocks with it. Luckily it is very easy to touch up the edge of this axe.

My only problem with this axe is the design of the head and how the handle wraps around the head instead of the head going around the handle. After a week of serious chopping I noticed that wood chips were being forced between the head and the handle. This happened so much so that the plastic around the head started to bulge out and so far one side has partially cracked off. The axe still performs well even if it's not as pretty as it once was. Their "gator" grip on the handle only lasted a day of use.

In my opinion Gerber just needs to do some slight modifications to the design to make this a genuinely stellar axe. Just putting a lip on each side of the head so that the handle could be tucked behind the head would do the job perfectly.

I took this axe on 3 different camping trips with me, and I had nothing but good things to say about it! My last camping trip, I was splitting logs for firewood, and the handle broke just below the axe head. This sent the axe head flying at a friend, who luckily was bent over, so the the axe head missed him. I won't buy these plastic composite axe handled tools anymore!

Within six weeks of use (chopping firewood for camping) the sheath for the blade has become badly chipped away, with slivers of wood getting between it and the blade, exposing a large portion of one side of the blade. I do not believe the axe is safe to use and am returning it to Gerber for warranty replacement.

I suppose that with this item, as with all tools, in comes down to owning and using the right tool for the right job. I have certain specialized needs and carefully read and research any product I buy to see weather or not that product meets my particular needs for the job I intend to use it for.
In the case of this Gerber hatchet/saw combination I found that met all the criteria I demanded and further more, after using it, I found that it exceeded my expectations.

I carry this combination with me in my truck...always. I carve, make, create canes and am constantly looking for young saplings to harvest (many trash trees along roadsides) and the cure for a couple of years before I start working on them. I also live in the middle of the woods which I pretty much leave alone and only trim and very selectively remove unwanted growth. This combination tool works wonderfully in both areas.

First, it is rather inexpensive when you consider the quality and what the tool was meant to be used for. Now you cannot buy something like this and expect to start your own logging business, nor can you compare it to a product that cost many times more than this. Remember, you need the right tool for the job you want it for.

I no longer camp, but I see no reason that this item could not be used for that purpose. On the other hand, tools are such a personal item that what might be perfectly acceptable to me, may be another persons bane. Again, research here is important.

I found the axe to be extremely sharp and have had not problems what so ever keeping it that way. Due to the type of cutting I do with it, I have to admit that the blade has come under some abuse.
