The Gerber Freescape Hatchet 17.5” is a stunning outdoor axe. Compact enough to take with you on a hike, large enough to cleave reasonably-sized pieces of wood. However, when you need to spend some time in your garden the Freescape Hatchet will also be the perfect companion.
In terms of construction Gerber decided to go with a modern and unconventional design. Instead of a wooden handle in a steel axe head the handle made from FiberComp closes around the head. As such the head can never separate from the handle. FiberComp is a fibre-glass reinforced type of plastic. Incredibly strong and very light in terms of weight. At the same time the handle absorbs a lot of the vibrations that are released when you are chopping.
