Plan on blazing trails or just cleaning up the yard anytime soon? Then consider packing the Gerber Gator Machete ($19). Measuring 25.7 inches long and weighing a light 18oz, it’s slightly bigger than that Swiss Army on your key chain. Overall the business parts amount to a 15 inch fine edge blade on one side, and a 18 inch high performance saw blade on the other. Thanks to a rubber ergonomic grip, it’s designed to stay put in your hand and store safely in its nylon sheath when not in use. If you didn’t notice the price tag, it’s also ridiculously cheap — which means you probably wouldn’t want to rely on it in the rain forest, but occasional use is fine. Fun groomsman gift anyone? Well maybe not for Patrick Bateman.
