Gerber’s answer to the Woodman’s Pal

Never at a loss for creativity and originality, Gerber has introduced the Gator Machete. A bush whacking utility that reminds me of another survival tool, but I can’t quit put my finger on it which one. Help me out–it’s on the tip of my tongue…

As seen on The Walking Dead, the Gerber Gator Machete Pro packs an Axe and a Machete into one $35 piece of gear. The Gator Pro featured a lanyard, mold and mildew resistant nylon sheath, “gator grip” (not to be confused with Funk Fu Grip), and a blade length of 10.5″. In addition, the Gator Pro sports High Carbon steel blade construction.

The Gerber Gator Machete Pro is sure to get the job done whether battling brush in the backyard, Jungles of some South American land, Boreal Forests of the North, or the Zombie Horde.

Of course you can always go in whole hog and get the whole Gerber Apocalypse Kit too. Just don’t let your mom catch you playing with it. She’ll totally take it away from you–Zombie Apocalypse or not…

    I have read bad reviews on the quality of Gerber’s steel. Check Amazon’s reviews on some of Gerber’s other Machetes.

    Interesting collection. But it would save you some cash to just buy one of each of the types of tool. One knife, one machete, and the camp axe. I would’ve found the entire package more appealing of there was a foldable shovel in place of one of the other tools, as well as some sort of fire starter or water filtration unit.

    Excellent find though! And good for Gerber for offering an actual quality product, instead of the garbge that most “apocolypse survival kits” are composed of. If the threat of a zombie apocolypse is what it takes to get people to realize that the safety net of technology isn’t impervious, so be it. As long as it means they’re starting to pay attention!!
