Gerber Pack Hatchet Camping Axe Product Review

The Gerber Pack Hatchet has full tang construction, giving you the steadiness in hand and the strength to power through challenging swings. Not all hatchets offer this construction, and it certainly sets it apart from other hatchets out there.

In the survival world, a full tang hatchet is desirable. Meaning that the blade of the hatchet extends down through the handle as one piece of metal, which increases durability and prevents the blade from becoming loose.

Its portability and versatile shape have the appeal to bring campers, hunters, hikers, and survivalists together. For a compact tool, this pack hatchet delivers an impressive amount of function.

With a weight of 1.3 lbs, it is the ideal hatchet to take with you anywhere. However, the feather-ness of this tool might be less appealing to those who prefer a more substantial chop.

The Nylon sheath included can also be mounted on a pack or belt, making it easy to grab when you need to act quickly on your feet. The integrated lanyard hole secures the hatchet while on the move, so you don’t have to worry about losing it during busy times.
