Whether you're defending yourself in a post-outbreak environment or simply sawing tree limbs or clearing brush, the Apocalypse Survival Kit offers a variety of useful tools, including three machetes: the Gator, the Gator Pro, and the Parang. The Gator has both fine and serrated edges, and the Gator Pro has an aggressive, multi-purpose blade than can be used as an axe, a machete, or a knife. The Parang has an angled blade and is modeled after a traditional jungle machete. The blades are all forged of high-carbon stainless steel.
Epic, DMF Folder, and LMF II Infantry Knives
The Apocalypse Survival Kit contains three knives--the Epic, the DMF Folder, and the LMF II Infantry--that can serve a variety of uses, whether it's cutting firewood, building a shelter, or protecting yourself in a disaster zone. The Epic sports a low profile, a titanium nitrate-coated blade, and an integrated bottle opener, while the DMF Folder has a folding tanto blade and a compact design suited for everyday carry. Engineered by a former military man, the LMF II Infantry knife is 10 inches long and has lashing holes that enable it to be used as a spear tip.
Single-Hand Camp II Axe
Also included in the Apocalypse Survival Kit is the Camp II: an all-purpose hand axe with a forged steel head and an elongated, glass-filled nylon handle. The axe comes with a molded plastic sheath.
Roll-Up Canvas Carrying Case
This survival kit comes enclosed in a durable canvas carrying case with reinforced stitching for easy transport. Stud buttons keep the case rolled up, helping make it compact and packable.
When Joseph R. Gerber described his young knife company, Gerber Legendary Blades, as the "birth of an enterprise that grew into big business," it was true, but it was an understatement for sure. What had started out in 1939 as a small batch of handmade cutlery sets given as holiday gifts had turned into thousands of retail accounts around the country. By 1960, Gerber had quickly become one of the most trusted, appreciated and collected names in knives.
After more than 70 years since its founding, Gerber continues to grow. Still grounded in the same principles that first guided Joseph R. Gerber's "enterprise," Gerber is a company dedicated to making knives and tools that combine high-quality materials and innovative designs that will stand up to a lifetime of use. The sleek, stainless steel sheath knives of the '50s and '60s (the Magnum Hunter) have given birth to today's lightweight, open-frame clip folders (the Remix). Gerber is, however, no longer just a knife company. Multi-tools, axes, handsaws, machetes, headlamps, flashlights, survival kits, digging implements--these are the newest directions that Gerber explores with the same standards of quality and design that inform their revered knife making.
