The 9" Hatchet is a portable axe that travels well in the kit of campers and outdoor aficionados; its compact size makes it ideal for chopping kindling and splitting small logs. The new black PTFE coating along the blade is engineered for a sharper, less sticky edge.
Gerber axes, like all of their products, are built to face down challenges. Taken along on a camping trip or applied for use in the yard, the 9" Hatchet is light in mass and tough in the blade. Featuring an innovative easily-removed sheath that still maintains a slim profile, the 9" Hatchet serves its owner with the excellence that modern technology and good steel have combined to deliver.
With a low-friction surface coating, the hardened forged steel blade of this axe slices through wood at a depth that is three times greater than average, allowing for faster chopping and maximum overall performance efficiency. The coated surface also prevents the blade from sticking in the wood, and its high-capacity potential prevents body strain.
Possessing a shock-absorbing handle that helps in prevention of overstrike injury, the 9" Hatchet offers great grip and superior hand control. Balanced perfectly for exertion-to-weight ratio, this lithe little axe swings with a solid, easy feel. Its hardened forged steel blade, in conjunction with the unique grind technique engineered for a sharper edge, will make sharp, clean cuts for far longer than average, making this an intuitive kit axe for camping and beyond.
