SHOT Show 2015: Gerber full tang Golok and Bush Machetes

If you like to use a machete for heavier tasks like chopping, batoning and splitting, check out Gerber Gear's new full-tang Golok and Bush Machetes. The Golok Machete is a whopping 1/4" thick, and the Bush Machete is only slightly thinner at 0.19" thick. Both are constructed from 1050 Carbon Steel and come with heavy nylon sheaths.

My initial impression of the machetes was definitely good. Both machetes felt solid and well built, and were also comfortable in the hand. The Golok in particular might appeal to bushcrafters who like big survival knives.


MSRP for the Golok is $64.99 and $52.99 for the Bush Machete.

On a side note, a senator in the state of New York has proposed a law to ban the sale and possession of machetes. If you're one of our New York readers, call your representatives and tell them to vote against this legislation!

Cheers, Jason
