Hitting the backcountry without a trust-worthy axe is not something we’d recommend. Knowing that pack space comes at a premium, Gerber built a portable chopping tool for the great outdoors in the Back Paxe II.
This performance axe is tiny, measuring in at just 9 inches in length, and weighing just 16.9 ounces. But don’t let its small size fool you, it’s ready to work at moment’s notice. Sporting a glass filled nylon handle, this thing is comfortable to hack away for prolonged periods of time. Whether you need to be chopping small logs for your campfire, or fish heads for dinner, the nearly indestructible forged steel head was built to tackle the task at hand. It also comes with a plastic guard to protect the head during transport. Grab yours today for $45. [Purchase]
