The Bear Grylls Survival hatchet has all the components of a lightweight backpacking hatchet with an ergonomic handle and blade treatments common throughout the Bear Grylls line.
A compact survival hatchet is worth its weight in lifesaving warmth and shelter. Especially when it weighs in at less than a liter of water, like the 1.4 pound. Bear Grylls Survival Hatchet designed by Gerber. The worse the weather gets, the more you’ll appreciate this sturdy little hatchet’s ability to turn out stacks of firewood or help you improvise a quick shelter.
SMALL BUT POWERFUL BLADE
Don’t let the compact size and slim profile of this hatchet fool you. With most of its heft concentrated in the head, it is definitely a tool that chops above its weight class. The 3.5-inch razor sharp blade is equally adept at limbing saplings as splitting logs. Combining Gerber’s decades of experience crafting tools with Bear Grylls’s adventure knowledge, the hatchet’s sturdy stainless steel, full-tang construction stands up to the hardest tasks.
ZERO SLIP GRIP
The rubberized handle fills your hand to create a lock-tight grip that won’t let go even when wet. And finger notches just below the head let you choke up securely on the axe for more precise control when feathering kindling or stripping bark. There’s also a handy hole at the base of the handle to attach a lanyard for an extra measure of safety.
DOUBLE DUTY HEAD
Opposite the blade, the back of the head features a crosshatched striking surface that can be used for all types of camp duties, from pounding tent stakes and straightening bent backpack stays to tenderizing meat.
