Description

Get an axe and saw in one easy-to-carry item with the Gerber Combo Axe II.

The Gerber Combo Axe II with Saw features an axe with a hollow handle into which a saw fits. Gerber made the axe handle out of nearly indestructible glass-filled nylon, so it's lightweight and durable. This handle is long for improved striking force and has a textured rubber coating to keep your hands glued to it for safe chopping. The durable wood saw slides into the hollow section of the handle, and magnets hold it in place. The Combo Axe II is an easy-to-pack, two-in-one addition to your camping or trail maintenance gear.

Love this axe!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Love this axe! I've never chopped or hacked at anything before and this axe felt so comfortable I trimmed up a dead tree like a pro (felt like it anyhow). The saw was handy to have nearby for those difficult angles.

I really like the saw.

I have to say the saw is the real gem in the combo. I would rather saw a limb or small log in half than chop through it with an axe. I almost find the axe turns out to be an overly bulky holder for the saw.

Does this axe (or any of the other Gerber axe's) come with a blade protector and/or sharpening tool?

Best Answer Responded on

Lisa, It does come with a heavy duty nylon axe head protecter. I put mine in my sea kayak and I have zero worry about it doing any damage . as for sharpening... It comes plenty sharp from the factory. I have sharpening stones I use on my knifes, but I would mainly use a small file on this if I needed to sharpen it while I was out and about. Any multi tool will have a decent enough file to suffice.

Happy customer

Great set. I love Gerber's products and this continues the streak of great manufacturing and design. This set is hungry and demolished some wood for me in short order. I recommend it to anyone who needs something strong and light.

Great Axe combo

So far so good. Came out of the package sharp and now comes with a rubber cap at the end of the handle that keeps the saw in the handle a little better. I probably would still take it out when I'm getting into it but that rubber cap for sure helps a ton.

Nice combo

The axe does rattle a bit inside the handle but I've yet to have it come out when it wasn't supposed to. I use this thing for all sorts of random activities and it is currently my tree root assassin. I don't doubt that this could get you through the zombie apocalypse while simultaneously maintaining your tinder stash for late night fires.

Great Combo Unit! Any one know of a saw like that w a Blade across from the serrated side?? 3 in 1.

Responded on

i have never seen one. i think that with as deep as the teeth are, if you tried to sharpen the other side you would just snap it in half on 1st use. plus, i am not sure that i would have any use for a semi-flexible knife blade.

Much Better than Gerber Gator Combo with Knife

Gerber also makes a shorter version with a fine edge knife. Knife is great, but axe simply doesn't have enough weight on it to not wear your arms out. This is a great alternative, but make sure to aim when your swinging, the edge does not take kindly to rocks or gravel. The soft metal will dull fast from its initial sharpness. I've sharpened mine 3-4 times since I bought it in november. Great for a few nights in the woods!!

Like The Concept...

Functional, saw does great work. Lightweight but heavy where it needs to be. But I am very disappointed with the fit and finish... mine was very poorly made.

Not Your Grandma's Hatchet

This little axe is pretty amazing! It's very sharp and solidly constructed yet it's still very light. The axe is very good at chopping and is also good at splitting smaller chunks of wood. I don't see this axe wearing out for a very long time. The saw was pretty sharp too, but I don't use it much. If you plan on using the axe, I do recommend taking the saw out of the handle to avoid having it fly out and injuring someone. I have no complaints with this axe and definitely recommend picking one up.

Gerber Rocks!!

I bought this for my husband for Christmas, but ended up giving it to him 3 weeks early so he could use it on our Christmas Tree.
He loves it; easy to handle and not too heavy.
He cant wait to use it this summer!!!!

Can the Back end be used as a hammer. For example hammering in stacks?

Responded on

Yes I believe it can, although I don't know that I would use it for much more than hammering in stakes.

Does the saw bounce around inside the handle when you are chopping wood with the axe? I read that magnets hold the saw in place, but I'm curious how secure the saw is when the axe is actually being used.

Responded on

Gerber recommends that you take the saw out of the handle while you use the axe, that makes sure it doesn't fly out on accident and if the handle fails in any way the saw isn't in there to make the matter worse.

Bring on the earthquake

I purchased this set to include in my emergency pack. You know, in case I encounter a natural disaster and have to flee quickly. I figured this combo would be adequate to fend off fallen trees, competitive badgers, and incompetent FEMA employees. The hardware looks up to all three tasks.
