Highly disappointed with this product
I was given this machete for Christmas and the first time I used it was January 7th unfortunately there isn't much left of it after that. My brother in law lost his dog in the woods and asked if I would help find it. So I grabbed to machetes one being the Ontario which I've had about 7 years and the other one the gerber I unwrapped it in the truck. I managed to chop a few branches when I noticed the blade metal peeled half way through the blade where it had been making contact with the wood. Long story short could have impaled some one if the blade had of warn all the way through. The Ontario came through as always I was very disappointed with this product especially in a time of need it let me down. Blade is extremely sharp out of the box. The machete felt well made and I thought for sure it would have been my new go to tool. Metal was to soft. Can't give a review on the saw as I did not get that far. Only other machete I've ever seen the blade chip on was the Olympia but that's another story still have that machete as well. I only hope my Ontario will fit in the sheath never tried yet as this incident only happened last night.

Gerber Sawback
Springy blade can be good for quick extraction from deep cuts! Also can deform and never be trued up again. Fantastic grip but works better with smaller hands. Cuts AND saws like the brush demon it was meant to be ... Dude, use your diamond sharpening stone! I mean who goes to the bush with a blade straight out box anyway?? One month into field and absolutely impressed with overall design.

Dissapoined SA
Took this to Botswana on safari. Not even good to cut 1/2 inch wet thorn branches. Handle very awkward to hold and swing. Blade not rigid enough which makes it springy. Imagine taking a crosscut saw blade and making a long machete out of it. Saw on back does not cut properly. My blade bent. It never even saw hard use. Costs the equivalent of $40 in RSA. I threw it away. Rather buy a $5 bush knife at your local hardware. You cant check the quality in the shop either as it comes sealed in a Plastic in the sheath. Very disappointing that someone like Bear Gryllis could endorse such a product. Will never buy from Gerber again.
