Gerber Gator® Combo Axe

Gerber LogoDo you own this axe? If you do you should know that Gerber has announced a recall of it because the knife was slipping out of the handle and lacerating people while in use. So far five people have required stitches.

If you currently have one, Gerber says to remove the knife from the axe handle then contact Gerber to receive a free handle cap, which will hold the knife in the axe handle during transport and storage.

Maybe I’m just not in touch with my inner lumberjack but I don’t see the improvement of a slip out knife in the handle over a standard axe. I must be missing something there.

Gerber Legendary Blades can be reached at (877) 314-9130 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT, Monday through Friday. For more info visit

With a promotion at the recent SHOT Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, Gerber was able to raise over twenty-two thousand dollars though the sale of Gerber’s new Bear Grylls Compact Scout knife over the course of the four-day show. Proceeds from the sale went directly to the Boy Scouts of America Cascade Pacific Council, which provides services and youth-development programs to families and community organizations in eighteen counties of northwest Oregon and southwest Washington states.
