Gerber Splitting Axe
Gerber axes, like all of our products, are built with an eye to hurdling trouble. The Splitting axe II, like the original Gerber Splitting axe, has an extra-long Fibercomp handle and weighted, stainless steel head for power when splitting logs and chopping roots. Built to withstand the abuse that regularly breaks wooden-handled splitting mauls and axes, this was made with loggers, arborists, landscapers and homeowners with wood-burning stoves in mind.
CONFIDENCE IN EACH SWING
The taper of the Splitting axe II is flared similar to a splitting wedge (a tool used to break a log by being driven into the wood with a hammer). Eliminating the need for a wedge saves the owner an extra step, providing for greater efficiency when splitting logs, which spells out savings in time, effort, and strain on the body. It has the capacity to split medium and large-sized logs with a single strike, and its shock absorbing handle helps in prevention of overstrike injury.
PERFECT BALANCE FOR EFFICIENCY
Coated with a low-friction surface, the blade of this axe slices through wood without sticking, while its well-engineered head splits wood cleanly. In addition, the blade retains an extra-sharp edge with its hardened forged steel construction. Balanced perfectly for exertion-to-weight ratio, the Splitting axe II swings with a solid, easy feel. In tandem with the well-engineered head of the axe, this creates such efficiency that the work can be done far faster than expected.

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.
