Prepare for the "zombie apocalypse" or other disasters or emergencies with the Apocalypse Survival Kit from Gerber. This kit contains seven survival tools--a Gator machete, a Camp II axe, a Gator Pro machete, a Parang machete, an LMF II Infantry knife, a DMF Folder knife, and an Epic knife--along with a durable canvas carrying case for secure transport.
The Camp II axe has a forged steel head and an elongated handle (view larger).
The DMF Folder is a compact knife with a folding tanto blade (view larger).
This kit comes in a durable canvas carrying case (view larger).
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.
What's in the Box
One Gator machete, one Camp II axe, one Gator Pro machete, one Parang machete, one LMF II Infantry knife, one DMF Folder knife, one Epic knife, and one carrying case.
|The Apocalypse Survival Kit also contains three machetes: the Gator, the Gator Pro, and the Parang (click each to enlarge).|

Seriously...it looks cool...but for a kit, where's the folding camp shovel? Why do I need two machetes? Why do I need two folding knives and yet don't get a multi-tool?
If you are collecting this because of AMC's 'The Walking Dead'...then congrats...excellent show, and might end up being worth the investment...(they really should show the whole kit again, if that is the case, though). If you are actually considering buying this because of 'preparedness'...take a pass, then on Amazon look up 'GERBER' and hand-pick the Gerber machete, a Diesel or Gerber 600 multi-tool, a folding knife and a folding camp shovel...then get a couple of yards of canvas material and a stick of blue chalk...lay it out on your living room floor, where you want everything to go...giving 1-2 inches between each tool, then mark it with the chalk, now roll up the canvas ONLY, and take it with you to the nearest 'fabric store' or seamstress and pay them $15-$20 bucks to sew you a REAL carrying bag that fits your actual tools and needs...(or if you are like me...beg the wife, who can sew, that you will take her to Olive Garden if she will sew it up for you)...
You get more tools, for a smaller price, with a custom fit bag...without 'The Walking Dead' premium...
Gator axe II, Fiscars makes good, reliable, inexpensive, axes. This is a recolored and branded Fiscars x7 (I think x7). There are few axes in it's price range better.
The DMF: a good, but not great, folder. This is the Chinese version of the American, s30v, DMF auto. This knife is, assumably, 7Cr13Mov, but this was the hay day of Gerber's mystery steel. Regardless, the lock up is good, blade is sharp and takes a resharpening good enough.
Cons: the gator pro machete. Seriously... It's actually useless. The main edge should have gone to the tip and around, not 80% down. I'm assuming it was either a cost thing or to keep it legal in all 50 states to avoid "weapons" classification vs. a edged tool or knife.
The hook is useless. It seems only to be made to cash in on the zombie apocalypse craze.
The gator machete II: cheap, but slightly effective. I've never tried the saw back, I just don't trust it. Might work fine, you decide yourselves. The blade grind is too low. The grind should have gone further up the blade, creating a better profile for slicing through overbrush, it's actual purpose.
The bear grylls parang: see what I said about the machete, minus the saw, same complaints.
The epic: a knife with a identity crisis. It wants to be a robust fixed blade, but it's blade design and handle screams neck knife. It's just too heavy, even if you made a kydex sheath for it. It feels good in hand and the reverse tanto sheepsfoot is a utility dream... but it isn't for me. The sheath sits to high, it doesn't bite in for a boot carry. Just a confused knife.
All in all, I'd avoid this. Buy a LMF II on it's own and get the leg straps. You'll be happier and won't clutter up your knife collection with stuff you won't use.
