“This Myth is Reality” exclaims article number one, as editors extoll the Fixed Blade Pro as “ideal for hunting” and “maneuverable in tight places”. A comprehensive review, the blade was “not tortured, but tested” and passed with flying colors based in its smart design, superior grip and innovative sharpener.

The magazine’s second spotlight featured the Gerber Gator Machete Pro, the next evolution of the legendary Woodsman’s Pal, as a tool that will deliver for clearance work and/or survival tasks. Calling it an “excellent kit for anyone requiring a serious clearing tool, or for anyone needing to operate in a heavily wooded environment for survival” the authors gave the Pro no quarter and came away duly impressed.

All in all, two great reviews and a fantastic showing for Gerber in one of the industry’s top knife and weapon books.  More, of course, to come….
