Gerber Knife Sets
Gerber is recalling about 2, 900 Uppercut Fixed Blade Knife and Sheath Sets. The Uppercut sheath does not hold the knife securely, allowing the knife to come out of the sheath unexpectedly, posing a laceration hazard.
All of the Uppercut Knife and Sheath sets affected by this recall include a black nylon sheath with an engraved Gerber sword and shield logo printed on the front and 'GERBER' engraved on the snap clip on the back. The sheaths are approximately 2.25-inches long and 1.25-inches wide at the top, tapering down to 0.5-inch at the base.
The knife sold with the sheath is a T-handled knife with an overall length of 4-inches and a 2-inch double-edged blade that snaps into the molded sheath. The knife has a laser marked white sword and shield logo on the front and a white alphanumeric code on the back tang of the knife. The Uppercut sets that were sold in a box have model number 30-000650 printed on the box. Sets sold in blister pack packaging have model number 31-001727 printed on the packaging.
The recalled Gerber knives were sold at sporting goods stores nationwide and online from March 2013 through June 2013 for about $60 per knife and sheath set.
Consumers should immediately cover and store the Uppercut knife in a safe area out of the reach of children. Contact Gerber Legendary Blades for instructions on returning the sheath for a free replacement sheath.
