Back from another trip to the camp site, I had occasion to put a couple pieces of gear to use this weekend. One of which i use regularly and the other that I recently acquired that I’ve been looking forward to using.
Gerber Camp Axe
First, I carry my Gerber Camp Axe in my truck all the time, just in case I want to hit the road camping, it doubles as gear for the Get Home Bag, and if I have to Bug Out, I always know where to find it, and if I Bug Out in the truck, I don’t have to worry about forgetting it. Second, I simply love this axe for camping. A few of the specifications:
- It weighs just about 2 1/2 pounds
- The handle is 18″ long and made of a strong polymer material
- The head is carbon steel and come out of the box pretty sharp.
Oh, and it also comes with a great Ballistic Nylon sheath that is very well built. I lost it once, called Gerber to buy a new one, and they sent it to me completely free. I thought that was awesome customer service!
In all, I really like this camp axe. I can certainly see strapping to my backpack to go do some serious hiking, camping, or Bugging Out.
