"can cut limbs up to 2.5 inches in diameter"...........but anything larger is much too intimidating.
"kinda wierd" ..........If you build it they will buy.
I have a normal Gerber axe, love it, and have never found it to be problematic to find a crack to stuff it in. I agree with WCD, too many failure points to even be considered. And at 50 bucks, not even a good deal.
Who I am precedes what I do, not the other way around.
Thats a lot of hinges for something you're going to bash into a piece of wood. I'd question the safety and how long it would hold up (or stay safe assuming it is to start with). I have a Gerber Gator Combo, I doubt its any heavier than this one and certainly fits easily into the smallest of packs. Heck, it would fit in my thwart bag.
Seems like a tool for a gadget collector, not someone that's going to use it.
Wow, that thing folds right to the underside of the handle! If you forgot to latch something or it gives way, that blade is going right into your fingers! Seriously, who product tests these things? I'm sure there are a bunch of safety latches, but it's hard to safety test what 10 years of use will do to an item like that.
I'm keeping my straight Gerber hatchet. It's nice knowing that I've got it ready to go at a moments notice.
