Sunday Funny?: Gerber Zombie Apocalypse Survival Kit

For the low, low price of $349 ($252 on Amazon) you can own not one, not two, but count ’em 3 knives, 3 machetes, and an axe. Gerber has actually bundled these items with a custom fabric roll, and is selling it as the Zombie Apocalypse Survival Kit.

From GerberGear:

What if it happens? What if our worst fears are realized? If the Dead walk, the continuation of the human race will become a daily struggle. Are you prepared to protect and defend your family and friends? Your best chance lies in the Gerber Apocalypse Survival Kit.

Way to jump on the Zombie bandwagon Gerber. That wave crested years ago.  For a company that seems to be putting marketing ahead of QC and innovation, your marketing guys need to try harder. This horse is so dead that Zombie knives have been banned in England.

I laughed when I saw the Bear Grylls parang listed among the included blades. I know that it has been several years since those were recalled because they had a tendency to shatter, but it seems emblematic of the direction that Gerber has been heading for many years now.

    A good read, and I agree with you.
    But I still carry a TOPS Armageddon, just in case 🙂

    According to the comments, which date back to around 2013, this was advertised on The Walking Dead.

    Sadly, it’s typical Gerber to sell a bunch of Chinese-made crap to people like it’s top of the line gear military level gear.

    Zombie survival gear was the bee’s knees…at the 2012 SHOT Show. By the next year, Zombie-themed kit was as dead as, well, the undead. I’m sad, but hardly surprised that this fallen purveyor of once-Legendary Blades has sunk to recycling this trash.
