Gransfors Bruks has earned a reputation as one of the finest makers of axes bar none.  Personally, I think the Gransfors Bruks Small Forest Axe is about as perfect as an axe can come.  However, with all those accolades comes a hefty price that many consumers find hard to justify.  Thankfully, there is a low priced alternative, Gerber 9-Inch Hatchet, and while it may lack the pedigree of the Gransfors Bruks Hand Hatchet, it certainly is a most capable chopper worthy of your attention.

Gerber 9-Inch Hatchet is a portable, compact backpacking axe that travels well in the kit of hikers and outdoor aficionados.  The hatchet combines light heft and an ultra-sharp blade known for its edge retention. Its size makes it ideal for chopping kindling, along with splitting small logs. Gerber’s 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 axe blade from sticking in the wood, and its high-capacity potential prevents body strain.

Good hatchet

Solid construction, nice in the hand, but wished they had it in a brighter color so it would not get lost when setting it down in the woods. Nothing a little spray paint cannot fix, but the rest of their lineup have the bright green on the handle similar to the guard that comes with it.

Camping equipment.

Great camping hatchet. Comes with a protective cover for the edge. Small enough to store easily but large enough to do the job.
