Gerber is a bit proud of this.. For $180 you are in Gransfor Bruk territory.
For that much money I'll get a hand forged, differential hardened traditional tomahawk.
400 series stainless steels are about the most brittle knife steel there is, which is fine for most knives because they're not intended to be struck against hard stuff like this tool is likely to be struck against if used for its intended purposes. For many years, Gerber didn't even list the (unbelievably cheap) steels they used, so this is an improvement over that, but whoever's picking the steel for this tool should be fired. The design seems useful enough, but the steel makes it so I wouldn't take this tool if someone tried to give it to me. My junk drawer is already full.

It's not the most brittle, it's the softest steel they use, meaning it's more flexible, meaning it's actually *less* likely to break when struck against hard stuff. The downside to softer steel is they lose their edge faster, but they're pretty easy to sharpen. Harder steel is more stiff, and much more likely to break, but they hold their edge far longer. Point being, the 420HC steel is the most suitable steel that Gerber offers for this particular tool, and it's certainly not brittle.

OK, I stand corrected, it's soft, not brittle. There are valid reasons to run away from this hawk like your hair's on fire, but you're right I did misspeak so I won't go into 'em now, except to say, $180 bucks? Really?
Starting to lose faith here.... Prime 2 day shipping for an average of $180-185 over the past 6 months
Best price here isn't even close to a deal, much less worth the wait.
(edit: am I losing my mind? Or did they change the lowest drop price and still have it end up being higher than the Amazon price with shipping?)

And with that out of the way.....I can't understand what makes this a $200 tool to begin with??
I was hoping for a great deal, too bad amazon has it for way less. Not to mention you don’t have to wait over a month to get it. You can have it within a week, two days if you have prime. Massdrop drops the ball to Amazon ...again.
Man o man I want one but can't justify the cost. Also Amazon has it for less https://www.amazon.com/Gerber-30-000715-Downrange-Tomahawk/dp/B00BBJQYEA/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8
Scape from Tarkov melee.
Damn this thing is sexy af! And I do love Gerber after having received a no questions asked warranty replacement of a multi-tool. But that's also steep af. I'd go about a hundred for this.

Agree, steel etc. does not warrant this price...
