Gerber Apocalypse Deterrence Combo
#1
Buddy of mine showed me this at Dunhams. Actually pretty nice. But the best part is on the back. You got to read the back of this package.

Example: Tanto Tip - For when you have to puncture thru Zombies skulls to reach the brain.

Rubber Grip - So your hands don't slip when covered with blood and gore.

It goes on and on. It was a howl to read.

And for you HARD CORE Zombie Hunters they offer this mother of a package.

Lots of killing tools in this bad boy.

Hahaha that is pretty cool, though I don't appreciate the knock off woodsmans pal.

The Woodsman... That's what it looks like. I couldn't think of it.

They say that if someone else copies your product, it must be pretty good. Gerber makes good stuff, so I imagine this one might be pretty good.

Dunhams wanted $85. Found it for around $65 elsewhere. They actually looked pretty nice when I was checking them out.

I'm telling you, you have to read the back of the package. It was really fun.

I would also point out that these are made in Boyertown, Pa. Good ole SEPA.

I know Gerber is an American company (Owned by Fiskars I believe, which is not), but does anyone know if their products are MADE in America?
Not a word on their website which is odd, as most of these types of business proudly state that they are "made in USA". (if they are)

Some stuff is, most is not.

That's what bugs me about their knock off. It'll steal sales from a high quality, American made implement.

Absolutely agree. It's not even "similar", it's damned near identical.

Not sure how patents and such work in that industry, but I'd be ticked if I were the original maker.

Glad this came up. I have always been interested in a Woodsman's Pal, but thought they were much more expensive. I may have to start saving my pennies for one.


Something else I'd like is a Vietnam Tomahawk.
I recall an article years ago about the originals that were made in Ebensburg, PA not far from where I grew up. I bought a cheap, Chinese knockoff at Dunhams a while back, but the handle wouldn't stay attached if you "used" it. I found many uses for it around the house and camp though before it became unusable. Quality, modern copies can be had, so I'll have to add that to the list.

This thread does NOT deliver.

I was expecting infant life insurance and rice cereal flakes.

They should have thrown a file in that kit.
