I got this hatchet at a department store for about 35 bucks. It came with a little holster and a dull edge. I put an edge on it in less than 2 minutes as the steel just grinds away (too easily). I go take it out and chop a small dead tree about 8 inches in diameter. I swung a couple times and the little saw came out half-way while I was swinging and got a good nick on my hand. I set the saw aside and finished the tree in about 4 minutes (very light hatchet takes much more effort). After the tree was down I examined the head and noticed there were some ugly nicks on the blade. It took a file and 10 minutes to straiten it out. I was not happy with how badly the hatchet was damaged from an old rotten mesquite tree. The saw that comes with it is really sharp and works well on branches under 3 inches. The handle is a little small but this is a compact hatchet it fits into. I would buy just the saw and a sheath but not the hatchet. It's not worth the little weight it is to go in my bug out bag. I advise that people go with a heavier constructed hatchet such as the Estwing hatchet or cold steel trench hawk. It's worth the extra weight by far. This hatchet just not gonna cut it when put to real use. I do not trust this hatchet to get me firewood long-term.

I end this review with a bandaged hand, a near useless hatchet, an ok saw with no sheath other than the crappy hatchet, and 35.00 bucks lighter wallet. Do not purchase this hatchet! Go with something heavier! Also buy through amazon so you have the option to return the item.

I am impressed with this combo. The hatchet has a little rubber cap that secures the saw inside the handle now!!!! Great addition Gerber! It came in decently sharp but a few swipes with my diamond stone and she shaves now, it took the edge literally in just a few swipes - have not used it yet so we'll see how long the edge lasts.

I bought this to carry on the pontoon boat, but have been using it around the yard to trim limbs. The handle has a covering that enhances the grip, which can be important in a hatchet. It is light weight and seems durable. The hand saw in the handle is a clever idea and adds hardly any weight to it. I am not an expert on these types of tools, but the handle length seems perfect for me and I am pleased with the value I got for my moolah.

I have had nothing but excellent luck with this axe/saw combo by Gerber. I will admit that I don't beat it up as much as some other reviewers have, but it still has always served its purpose. Here we go..

The saw is incredibly sharp, and holds up well. At first I felt it was a bit flimsy, but upon actually putting it into service I was impressed. I think it was a genius plan to make the saw magnetically hold itself into the axe handle.. a little extra security is never a bad thing. Overall, it cuts well and doesn't require too much work to get through decent sized branches. I do however have trouble holding the saw securely while sweating profusely, but more grip would more than likely make it difficult to get in and out of the axe handle.

As far as the axe goes, it holds an edge well and feels solid. The handle is at the perfect length to get maximum leverage with the weight of the head. Some others dislike that the back side of the axe head is not exposed while covered with the sheath, but I tend to enjoy the fact that its fully covered. The sheath is heavy duty, and feels like it would take a LOT to damage it. The Velcro holds it onto the axe head perfectly with minimal movement, so as long as its covered it feels safe and comfortable.

I throw this axe with my Camelbak for mountain biking singletrack after strong storms.. just because it stinks backtracking 10+ miles due to debris. This way I can clear the way, and keep on moving. Well worth the money, and holds up to the Gerber name..

My biggest concern was how well is it weighted both with and without the saw in the handle, and without the saw in the handle is it strong enough to even chop without breaking? But my concerns were thrown out the door when I got my hands on it, it doesn't feel awkwardly weighted with or without the axe in the handle and the plastic handle is certainly strong enough to hold up without the saw in the handle. The saw is a good saw and so is the axe, but I'd recommend sharpening it a bit before going out to the wild and realizing you wish you had sharpened it a little, it'll get by no question, but a little sharper means a little less work. I bring this with me every backpacking trip I'm going to be building a fire whether I need it or not, it's great to have.

At 15" long, this is just the right size for a camp axe!

The axe is well weighted and needed just a bit of sharpening before chopping up some kindling. I have not had any call to use the knife (saw) in the handle yet, so I can't speak to that. By the way, my ax package says "Made in Taiwan" not China.

Put the axe handle through the fat part of the sheath and bring it up, folding the velcro flap over the top of the axe to secure it. everything lines up fine that way; and if on your belt, the flap can be undone and the axe pulled up out of it with the sheath staying behind securely! Thank you Sergio!
