Gerber’s Gator Machete Pro, although unusually designed, looks to be a decent multi-purpose blade. It features a 10.5″ high carbon steel blade, Gator-grip rubberized handle, and nylon lanyard.
It also features a mold and mildew-resistant nylon sheath, built-in sharpening stone, and an unidentified corrosion resistant “superior steel” that is said to sharpen easily.
Gerber has decided to market the tool using the over-used Zombie-slashing angle, which makes it look like a less serious tool. What do you think? Versatile tool or tacticool accessory?
Now, if really backed into a corner by a zombie, would you prefer one of these machetes, or a Sog Tactical Tomahawk?
