Are you worried that the dead might be walking among us? That they are already out there, tearing your friends from limb to limb?
Now, don’t you worry, Gerber, your trusted tool brand, has come out with an all you need Zombie Apocalypse Survival Kit. It contains everything that one might need to hack one’s way out of the brain dead population. Knife, axe, machete, you name it. The kit got it all.
This Kit from Gerber contains 3 different types of machetes. The Gater, the Gater Pro and the Parang.
All the blades have a superb finish and are made of high-carbon stainless steel. In a post apocalypse world, they are your best friends. Be it cutting out a tree from your way or clearing the thicket of bushes to make your way, these come in handy. On one hand where the Gater has both fine and jagged edges, the Gater Pro is a much more aggressive one which can be used as an axe, a machete and even as a knife. The Parang on the other hand has a typical jungle machete feel with its angled blade and sleek looks.
The survival kit also contains three different types of knifes including the Epic, the LMF II Infantry and the DMF Folder. They serve a variety of purposes, ranging from cutting up the firewood, building a temporary shelter for the night to even protection from animals in the wild. These blades are top notch. Each of these has very specific uses. The Epic for instance, sports a titanium nitrate coated blade and can double up as a bottle opener. The LMF II infantry is a typical military knife with a blade that is 10 inches long. It has lashing holes on its side, which creates a provision for it to be used as a spear tip.
Apart from the machete and knife collection, the Zombie Apocalypse Survival Kit also contains a hand axe, namely the Single Hand Camp II Axe. It is a multi-purpose hand axe forged out of steel, it has a long nylon handle with a superior grip. It is an essential companion for any post apocalypse survivor.
The entire kit is enclosed in a canvas roll up carrying case. It packs the entire kit as one compact unit, and makes it easy for transport. If you are a fan of AMC’s “The walking dead”, you know how cool the kit looks enclosed in this all black canvas case.
This is a complete set of tools that one might need, when on the run, in a post apocalypse world. But there are some who argue as to why the kit needs three specialized machetes and not a folding camp shovel or why there are two foldable knifes and not a multi-tool. The answer is quite simple really; it is not a camping tool-kit. It is a Zombie Apocalypse survival kit, and the day when your worst fears are realized and you find yourself being chased by a hundred brain dead zombies, you will understand the why of your question. And when the Parang saves your life, you will have Gerber blades to thank.Continue reading >
