Gerber Gator Kukri Machete
- More Information
Not everyone needs a machete, but if you do, you need it for a reason. Designed for utility, the Gerber Gator Kukri is based on a traditional tool of Central Asia, with subtle updates for modern use, including an ergonomic handle shape, slip-proof grip, and hefty full tang construction to stand up to repeated heavy use. Its distinctive shape—pointed tip, wide midsection, narrow neck near the handle—comes from centuries of use as a multi-purpose tool that could double as protection.
Heavy duty enough to withstand serious cutting and make short work of everything from tall grass to small tree limbs, the hefty 12-inch blade’s unique curved shape offers three specific sections. Its pointed tip pokes and pierces with accurate ease. The wide midsection chops wood or vegetables powerfully and cleanly. The narrow area above the handle allows for wood carving or whittling of kindling. Made of corrosion resistant 1050 Steel, with full tang construction for durability, the Gator Kukri’s balance of weight and shape create a powerful combo.
The ergonomic Gator Grip handle sits comfortably in your hand, offering a secure, tactile grip for confident cutting, whether conditions are wet or dry. A wrist lanyard offers an extra measure of insurance when you’re hard at work swinging.
The rugged nylon sheath keeps the blade from getting banged up when not in use, and features belt loop and D-ring attachments for carrying on your hip or lashing to a pack.
