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.
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..
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!

I owned this axe and used it daily for about a year for limbing and breaking up kindling for fires. At first glance it seems like a great idea to have a back-up saw in the handle. Read morePublished on July 5, 2014 by Ryan Laughman
