In a brilliant marketing move, Gerber Gear has repurposed a series of its bushwhacking and survival tools as necesseties for the impropable (inevitable?) zombie apocalypse. If you have an ancient stone Mayan calendar in your living room, you know what I’m talking about.
The original limited edition Apocalypse Kit, promoted in conjunction with the AMC series The Walking Dead, quickly sold out. But now it’s back in production to coincide with the show’s second season. The next limited run of Apocalypse Kits will ship in March for $350. Each kit has has seven blades, ranging from small to massive, all squeezed into a highly portable roll-up carrying case.
The individual blades are also available. We took a few of our favorites from the kit — the jungle machete, the camp axe, and the smaller machete — out to the woods and gave them each a few whacks.
