Gerber Sport Axe II
The 14" Hatchet, like all Gerber axes, is built with an eye to sturdy troubleshooting assistance. The 14" Hatchet is the middle brother of the Gerber single hand axe series. Featuring an innovative easily-removed sheath that still maintains a slim profile and stores neatly within the handle, the 14" Hatchet serves its owner with the excellence that modern technology and good steel have combined to deliver. The handle features a soft touch over-mold to keep the Sport Axe II securely and comfortably in your hands.
A portable, compact axe, the 14" Hatchet combines light heft and an ultra-sharp blade known for its edge retention. Its size makes it ideal for splitting medium-sized and smaller logs. With a low-friction surface coating, the hardened forged steel blade of this axe slices through wood at a depth that is three times greater than average, allowing for faster chopping and maximum overall performance efficiency. The coated surface also prevents the blade from sticking in the wood, and its high-capacity potential prevents body strain.
Possessing a shock absorbing handle that helps in prevention of overstrike injury, the Sport Axe II offers great grip and superior hand control. Balanced perfectly for exertion-to-weight ratio, this nimble axe swings with a solid, easy feel. Its hardened forged steel blade, in conjunction with the unique grind technique engineered for a sharper edge, will make sharp, clean cuts for far longer than average, making this an intuitive kit axe for camping, yardwork, and beyond.

In 1939 Joseph Gerber hired a local knife maker to build 25 sets of kitchen cutlery to be given as Christmas gifts. The knives were so popular that Joseph Gerber left his advertising agency to start Gerber Legendary BladesÂ®. The unique style and high quality manufacturing of Gerber cutlery soon developed wide spread acclaim. In fact, Gerber Legendary Blades are the only cutlery on display in New YorkÂs famous Museum of Modern Art.
From very early on, Gerber collaborated with top knife designers, setting a standard of quality for everyone else to follow. Renowned designers such as Al Mar, Bob Loveless, Paul Poehlmann, "Blackie" Collins, William Harsey Jr. and Ernest Emerson have all designed knives for Gerber. In 2002 this tradition continued as Gerber released the Silver TridentÂ, designed by Chief James "Patches" Watson (U.S.N. Ret.) and Bill Harsey Jr.
Today, Gerber continues to design and manufacture unique, high quality outdoor recreation products. In 2003 we are proud to introduce the next generation of multi-tools: the RecoilÂ Auto-Plier. By constantly utilizing new technology and innovative design to develop new products, Gerber continues to be an industry leader.
