Gator Combo Axe II – Best Camp Hatchets
Need a camping hatchet? There are many to choose from but one of the best camping axe hatchet to consider is the Gator Combo II axe made by Gerber. I find that the well-made axe fits very comfortably in your hand for an easy swing motion while chopping wood. Gerber wood cutting axe and knife combo is very versatile – great for backpacking, scouts, camping and overall general gardening use.
The Gator II axe’s lightweight design is very compact and feels solid while striking. Made with a longer handle than the original Gator, the advantage is a greater striking force with the stainless steel head. Gator II provides incredible striking force, making it ideal for a range of camping, hunting, and other outdoor or around-the-house tasks.
Solid Grip Hatchet Handle
The hatchet handle is made of glass-filled nylon and covered in Gerber’s Gator texture. It offers a better and more comfortable grip in wet and muddy conditions. The camp hatchet handle also houses a coarse blade handsaw, held in place magnetically, for sawing branches and brush. It’s a best axe rugged and lightweight camping essential. Chop firewood quickly and efficiently, or saw limbs to improve shooting lanes with this best camping hatchet.
