I used the Gator to cut down chocking vines and brush on my 25 acres of Pennsylvania property, so it got a honest workout.
Pro’s: Well made, good sheath, the hook proves useful at times, strong thick sharp chisel blade.
Con’s: the slight curvature of the cutting blade was mostly a disadvantage to cutting, although sharp it didn’t cut nearly well as a standard machete, the attached sharpening stone is practically useless.
On a scale of 1 to 10 whereas a standard inexpensive machete is a 10 the Gator is at best a 4.
If I hadn’t alternate it by painting the handle blaze orange so it wouldn’t get lost in the high weeds before using it, I would have shipped it back. The awesome looking Gator may look like it would cut down a Redwood but there are much, much better choices.
I saw this machete on AMC's The Walking Dead early in season 2. It was with a rolled up set of Gerber tools. That set costs $280. I was like "Hell no! I can piece the set together buying each piece separately for way cheaper". This machete was so zombie apocalicious that I ordered it right away. It arrived within 2 days after ordering( gotta love prime)! It feels sturdy, has a good heft, and is plenty sharp. It has a solid feeling rubber grip and a safety cord to keep your hand from slipping onto the blade (if you use it correctly). It is a little on the small side for being a "machete" , for me, as I'm just shy of 6 feet tall and closing in on 380 lbs, but it can handle moderate tasks. It feels great in my hand. For just over 30 bucks you can't go wrong. Just for the zombie slicing and dicing fantasies alone is it worth it. But add to that functionality and wicked aesthetics, and it's a steal.
So why not 5? I am just not happy. With a blade of only 1/8" thickness and an overall weight of 18.5 oz the machete feels to light and in particular while hacking through the trunk I would have wished for more weight. Yes, I should have used an ax, saw or hatched for the trunk but I feel it was a valid test if I want to take only one tool on a trip to the back country. The thing what bothered me the most was the plastic feel and look. I love my Gränsfors Bruk for its looks and craftsmanship as well as for its utility. The Gerber is a purely utilitarian tool that I could lose on a trip and readily replace with something more traditional.
