Apocalypse Kit
Merchandising is a strange beast. Manufacturer Gerber Legendary Blades has issued an Apocalypse Kit “as seen in” the TV-series The Walking Dead, based on the comic book series of the same name. I perfectly do understand that this is a limited edition (only two batches of 200 sets) directed at a niche collector’s market. Nevertheless I’m not sure what to think about it. Especially as I always associate Gerber not with tools (which is their absolute main line), but with the Gerber Mark II fighting knife, which not only was identified as the killing-instrument of choice in the infamous and controversial Hit Man: A Technical Manual for Independent Contractors, but hailed also in more down-to-earth and non-controversial combat sports literature.
