Gerber XL Axe
Gerber axes, like all of our products, are built with an eye to hurdling trouble. Whether it's for camping, on a work site for hard labor, or puttering in the backyard, the 23.5" Axe, like the original Gerber 23.5" Axe, is light in the handle and tough in the blade, serving its owner with the excellence that modern technology and good steel have combined to deliver.
SWING WITH CONFIDENCE
One of the benefits of the 23.5" Axe is its solid, easy swing. Coupled with a super-sharp blade made of hardened forged steel possessing excellent edge retention, this axe will chop up to three times deeper than average and provide for greater productivity, which spells out savings in time, effort, and strain on the body of its operator. The tactile grip of the nylon handle contributes to relief of body strain, too, as well as improved control during each swing.
KEEPING AN EDGE WITH EASE
Beyond the task of tree felling, the 23.5" Axe, given its light heft and ultra-sharp edge, works equally well to delimb branches and clear brush. Coated with a low-friction surface, the blade of this axe slices through wood without sticking, while its well-engineered head splits wood cleanly. Built to last, the 23.5" Axe has a tough glass-filled nylon handle with a comfortable, grippable soft touch over-mold and a stainless steel blade that is hardened and forged, equating to edge retention that well outpaces traditional axe blades.

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.
