Built as tough as the Gator Machete, the Junior is offers the same cutting power in shorter, more packable form. The two-sided blade has both a fine edge for hacking brush and vines and a rough cut saw edge for cutting branches, limbs and small trees. It's a high-carbon steel shaft with a Gator grip handle. For back-country travel, when every bit of weight is accounted for, the Gator Jr. is the right machete. Weighs only 14.3 oz. Overall length: 18.75". Blade length: 10.75".
