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. Enclosed in a super durable canvas carrying case with reinforced stitching, the kit is compact and packable. To beat the uprising we must work together. We must arm ourselves and organize.
*This kit is also available for purchase through:
- 7 Apocalypse Survival Tools
- Gator Machete
- Camp Axe II
- Gator Machete Pro
- LMF II Infantry
- DMF Folder
- Durable canvas
- Handle for easy transportation
- Stud buttons to keep the case rolled up
- Reinforced case stitching
Got one for Xmas and LOVE IT worth the money high quality stuff!
don't believe in apocalypse but it is use full for clearing / knife=caring in pocket / and the bag just makes it easy to put in a safe
In order to consider this a true survival kit, there should be an included sharpener to maintain your blades in the event of an apocalyptic situation.
Even when the initial run of these sold out, I still picked up two for less than thing from an e-tailer (and have since sent in the bad parangs that were recalled and got replacements). Those original issues are going for over $500 on eBay. This 2nd edition one Gerber is now selling is unlikely to ever be even worth its purchase price from here. Look around for a better deal. And Google "Gerber Bear parang recall" for info on how to tell if you have the bad parang (replacement is free) or the fixed one.
Quality: Top notch! These are not comic book store display toys, these are real, heavy-duty tools. I've already used the parang (before I sent it back!) to trim an hugely overgrown, very solid and woody, prickly pear cactus (I'm talking an 8' tall monster wider than an SUV). The parang cut through it with very little effort. My only complaints are: 1) Too much orange. 2) The roll-up bag is a bit too small (it's very difficult to roll this back up enough that it can be snapped again, so get something to tie it with).
as seen in the walking dead
i dont belive in the apocalypse but this seems like a great kit to have for survival in the mountains. i would like to buy it when i have the money to spend.
I actually got the kit im not just going to post a useless review about how its stupid and wont survive. Upon opening I loved the kit itself. Nice and durable, looks good but there is abit to much space where the infantry goes in but the Velcro holds everything in nice. After checking it over I also found I didnt know how to close it back up but I think im closing it right now. The items seem great and would be awesome for most survival tasks but I found the least useful to be the gator machete pro. Instead of thinking there is going to be an apocalypse and just sitting it in my closet I actually took time to use each item and found them very sharp and useful. I will use the items for clearing trails and other tasks and if zombies come I guess I will be ready to fight them
Everybody who says its more expensive to buy everything seperatly is stupid, if you buy everything seperatly it comes up to $391 and you dont even get the cool role up bag it comes with.
You must have this kit to survive in a unnexpected zombie attack. From past experience my ex car turned into a cat zombie and I desperately needed this kit. There should be a gun in this kit for long ranged attack
I like the kit, but the price is a bit to high. I could buy similar items for less.
Will it blend?
Gerber should sell the 'Durable Canvas' as a separate item. I already have several items in the set. I'd have more incentive to complete the set.
Lenore, you don't learn. You do, or you don't.
I myself have experienced several zombie invasions, and this is indubitably one of the most necessitous toolkits to have in one of said invasions. It was my own egregious error in the first invasion I experienced to not have on of these. As a result, I lost both of my arms in a raid. I now have learned to utilise my feet for optimal typing and I would like to inform you all that this is necessary for your survival.
I Agree that the bag should be available by itself, that would be awsome. It's a really sweet kit.
Does it come with instructions? How do I learn how to survive? I am serious!
Will it ship before December 21?
I just got mine! Now if I could only get it autographed by the cast who made it famous!!!
It's the bag I want. I have some of the other things (Too much $ at one time). I wish the bag was available by itself.
You got the hand to hand combat covered, but I would feel better adding a 12 ga. pump & night vision goggles. Zombies don't show up on infra-red!
Do they have it at wallmart?
love it , wish i had one
If it was used in the walking dead, it's good enough for me
All great except for one little problem, I personally would have replaced the epic with the diesel multitool
Not worth it. A decent machete, survival knife, and hatchet will do the work of this over priced kit.
This is titled the apocalypse survival kit because I believe It was made for The Walking Dead. I didn't buy this but I have used/ owned all of the tools. They work great. It would likely be cheaper to buy everything separately but it will likely be bought for the most part by TWD fans.
Christmas Wish. Nuff' said
Thats def not an all in 1 snd vety pricey no multti tool and gerber has so mu c h nice stuff also add spade and multi tool and mabey be worth it
Any one else find it funny these come with lifetime warranty....shouldn't it be guaranteed to split zombie skulls? Just saying, however, love the product.
This is ridiculous. This will prepare you to kill zombies, that is it. What about the rest? Food, water, climbing, lighting, signaling. I resent this product.
To be an "all in one survival kit" why is there not a multi-tool in order? For the price you would think it would be included. The case has plenty of room above the logo to add extra comprtments also.
Me want, but not that bad. Maybe I'll regret it.
Lose the regular Gayor Machete and add a shovel. That would be worth $349.
This thing is bloody awesome! Be careful when you take your thingy out.
I must come clean and let everyone know I got my kit for free. My friend's kid found it in an abandoned car on the highway. It has served well for its intended purpose. Had to rescue my girlfriend with the machete... cuts through zombie skulls pretty easily. I would recommend to my friends if most of them weren't dead.
Its a nice and all in one item for the so called "end of the world"
My opinion...just wait for the Zombie Apocalypse to happen...then loot the abandoned Gerber™ Factory for listed items. FREE!
Contrary to the previous post, the separate pricing would be $391 and you do get the added bonus of having the All-In-One Carry Case as well as having each individual case for each individual tool or knife as if you bought each item separately making it easy to carry just one or a couple of these items at a single time.
i agree with Dave, i love Gerber products,but this should b atleast $100 cheaper and id buy it...sry Gerber :(
It is pretty awsome but the price is a little high and it really needs a shovel thrown in too.
I compared prices and considering that you get it all in one, with a durable canvas roll-up case, it's a great deal. If you were to order all of these items separately it would be $336 and you would have to pack them around in their respecting sheaths/cases. Awesome!
really cool but no medical things
I'd like to see an add-on/upgrade to this kit that include a spade, fire starter kit and maybe the downrange tomahawk.
This looks like the same kit they used in The Walking Dead, the kit Carl found on the dead body in the car in season 2. From what it looks these would all come in handy during the zombie apocalypse
It has good suplies but I think it is to much money to bargin for
I just recently picked this up from Amazon.com with the assistance of 3rd party shipping (seeing as though I live in Australia) and I can confidently say this is a great assortment of tools. I can't wait to try them out a few at a time when I go hiking with my friends. I'm also a big fan of The Walking Dead which makes this even more awesome for me!
You can tell by the way the products look and feel. They are very high quality. These can be used for a assortment of things like camping, hunting, and surviving in your back yard from your crazy wife.....
Being born and raised in the backwoods and mountains of Georgia I feel confident in my knowledge of survival and the outdoors. I own various knives and tools from Glock, Smith & Wesson, as well as Gerber. Speaking from experience I can say with confidence that Gerbers products are second to none
Looks cool and all and like it has some nice items, but like Dave said for this economy $349.00 is a bit steep. I was guessing $200.00 till a saw the price/
Back in the day Gerber used to make incredible blades. Then about 15 years ago something changed and they started using cheap steal and manufacturing processes. The one good thing? Price came down. I bought a BMF about the same amount of years ago. Dropped it on some rocks about 8 feet down and the blade snapped at its thickest part. Took me 4 months of arguing with them to even look at it. They used to be great, now they are just average.
Wasn't this kit featured in "The Walking Dead"?
I was looking for a few knives so I bought this kit with the idea I would part it out and maybe gift a few knives. All the knives in this kit are extremely dull. Is this normal?
Worth every penny. No regrets about buying this kit. Buy one and you won't need to buy any knives again.
This is a very high quality kit of knives and other edged weapons in a secure and well constructed carrying case. Whatever happens now, I am ready!
don't put a lighter in it... a lighter runs out of fluid. put a fire steel with an extra replacement. also get rid of the gator machete that thing a POS and the epic fixed blade. and a multitool would also be a great addition, other than that it's really cool but just a bit too expensive.
Not really good for survival, great if you want to arm a few people quickly
I would suggest removing a machete or two, add a crowbar, and maybe a tomahawk
replace the hatchet with something like the Max axe multi purpose tool, throw in a coarse/fine file and a good stone for sharpening
Another good addition would be one of those knives that can double as a spear, with a strong tapered blade that can easily penetrate and be removed from skulls
This looks like an awesome kit. Would love to win it. I live in Florida with gators, snakes and all sorts of other dangerous things.
very good set but very overpriced
If everyone but me is dead how do you offer a warranty?
Gerber makes some excellent products. However, i don't see myself buying this product at this price. I'll wait and see if the price drops. I'd pay 200.00 for it but not 349.00 a bit expensive to me in this economy.
I love it the only thing I would change is a sharpening tool made to sharpen all of them and a how to guide
Not bragging but I have done just about everything wilderness including secluded white water rafting on the Colorado, Green, and Ocoee Rivers and others. I have always carried high carbon bladed knives. I really like the grips and lanyard loops on the Gerber Knives and tools because if you are around water, sooner or later your gonna drop it. I really like the Gerber knives now that I have learned to sharpen the stainless blades.
Stumbleupon took me to this website and showed me this apocalypse kit not i just finished seeing the walking dead season two episode one and this exact kit is in it, which i find pretty cool im most likely going to buy it now. Lets see how it goes
I'm one of the few reviewers that have actually PURCHASED the kit.
The quality is great. Not perfect, but will take some serious damage. I think the largest selling aspect of this bundle is the novelty factor, that aside I feel the bundle is worth the price for a knife/axe/machete for nearly any scenario. Plus backed with a lifetime guarantee, you can't go wrong. If you feel it's to extravagant/expensive, don't buy it, and don't feel the need to unleash your bias views as reviews. All the naysayers aside, I would recommend it.
Gerber products in general have gone downhill FAST and FAR in the last years.
Before the 2000's hit, Gerber made good blades and they were my #1 maker, and having a BMF........made damn good blades.
These days, I wouldn't use a gerber to cut my way out of a wet paper bag.
You can SEE the lack of quality, even past the packaging that gerber probably paid more for than the actual knife......
Either make something I don't have to return, or I won't buy your knives.
ESEE makes a fine fixed blade, if you are wanting some actual good steel, with good heat treat that won't break on you.
This needs to be standard issue for military in Afghanistan. I would have loved having this overseas.
It's a really cool idea but not only too expensive but some of the choices they put in there are not good ones. They should replace the camp axe with a tomahawk its lighter and you can still chop wood if you have to with it,as well as the tactical advantage with it. i use mine in the bush all the time it works great and is only $35. Keep the LMF II and get rid of one of the machetes.the parang it would be good but they break easy and it's basically just another machete so get rid of the parang. Add a good multi-tool! The list should be something like this.
1: gator machete
3: LMF 2
5: a Scottish dirk or something similar
6: a tactical folding shovel
That's just my opinion ;)
I bought this kit andkilled 3 zomies last week!!! This set is AWESOME!!!
I think its awesome because it has all the knives you need to survive in a apocalypse. Great job and I will be getting one soon
I would get this, I saw it before and even noticed it in The Walking Dead. Pretty Awesome, for the people who complain about what it doesn't have, is anything good enough for you? Gerber makes amazing knives.
I think it's a pretty cool idea and it also saves you money from buying the tools/weapons separately. From looking at the individual prices compared to this set. The individual prices add up to $389 or so (Added quickly in my mind) and this is $349, you save $40 off the cover price. I do agree a shovel and a lighter would be very useful to add to this or to make a deluxe version.
It's useless to have 7 weapons to kill zombie, a baseball bat, a spear or a machete is enough. And this isn't a survival kit, it's just heavy steel that will slow you down. These are the most important things you MUST have in your bag :
-Water (1 gallon per person per day)
-Food (stock up on non-perishable items that you eat regularly)
-Medications (this includes prescription and non-prescription meds)
-Tools and Supplies (utility knife, duct tape, battery powered radio, etc.)
-Sanitation and Hygiene (household bleach, soap, towels, etc.)
-Clothing and Bedding (a change of clothes for each family member and blankets)
-Important documents (copies of your driver’s license, passport, and birth certificate to name a few)
-First Aid supplies
PS: sorry for my bad english, i'm french and young )
In any survival scenario, with or without zombies, nobody that plans to live would take 3 machetes and an axe. Those fulfill the same role in your outfitting, and one of them is heavy enough to carry. In a scenario with zombies (if it was possible) you might not take any of them, because they have the nasty habit of getting blood splatters from whatever you're hitting on your person. Infection anyone?
For all-round survival, most people would go with a fixed blade knife, a multitool or swiss army style knife, and then perhaps a machete or axe. Plus a lighter or firesteel and lots of other stuff obviously. For zombies one would add a gun to that kit, or/and perhaps a trench style club/mace.
For some light chopping and a nice bout of woodworking, buy this kit, because that's where these tools really shine.
Should add a multitool to the set. I also agree with adding a shovel (perhaps replacing one of the machetes or two of the fixed blade knives).
Nice but too expensive. I love how it is organized but you can make your own, buying similar if not some of the same weapons, bladeds, etc for cheaper and create your own.
i think its smart to be armed for when the world is taken over by zombies in about two years but i would say it could have included a lighter... i mean its not that hard right?
this isnt much of a survival kit its just steel, no fire starters, ways to carry water, purify water, and no signling devices
I like all the tools and they're of great quality, but I find the lifetime warranty ironic. If they break in the middle of a zombie apocalypse, you can be happy knowing that they had that nice warranty and that you can get another one?
First, jeckel, the point of this kit is not to light fires or help see. It's to sruvive, kill, create shelter, scavage food, things like that. A COMPLETE sruvival kit, IE; bug out bag, should have several different kits. Fire kits, water puri kit, knife kit, gun cleaning kit, etc.
Next, I want to say this kit is incredible. It has covered every base of technical out door survival.
Its half and half really. I pit together my own kit for a small price of $100 in a backpack, and it has a huge first aid kit, fire starters, a plant manual etc. you could make your own with household items is all I'm saying
This is a pretty good kit but survival tools arent going to have much of an affect without something to help light fires and a flashlight
It is so good to have one of BA kit's.
i love this but i use it 4 survival
Perfect! Just like the show! I will save money for this!
This kit is hilarious. IMO, I would have dropped the 2 smaller knives from the kit and added the Gator Brush Thinner, swapped the Camp Axe for the Gator Combo Axe II, and dropped the Gator Machete for a Gorge Folding Shovel or the E-Tool w/Pic. That would have been a sick collection to have all at once, which is why i'm just building my own Apocalypse Kit. A blend of Gerber & Fiskars.
This is a goud kit but tri too make another 1 like this:2 parangs, 1 cable Dawg, 2 E-tools! 1 extra large axe, 5 BG survival tool packs,5 podigy tanto and 2 BG sharpeners.
yea totaly all of the knifes featured in the Walking dead not sure when the new season starts though
i love the kit just little expensive i like it
Yea i saw it too haha, great kit recommend it for anyone who wants to be ready for anything
Hey man your not alone i remember seeing it in the walking dead. Carl saw it in a truck and pulls it out then rick gives everyone a piece of the kit.
I recognized the bag right away in Walking Dead Season 2, Gerber assorted a great collection here. I can tell it'd be very useful in the wilderness for survival and establishment of a semi-permanent camp. Looking forward to getting it eventually.
I ordered on the first time it was on sale, and I am very impressed with the quality of this kit. No matter what happens you will be prepared for it.
am i the only one who recognises these from the walking dead season 2 ? still some excelently crafted equipment!
Even though I do not believe in the Zombie/Myan apocalypse, Gerber has really put together some great tools! This would be great for an extended camping trip or for emergencies. Also its a good addition to any Bug Out Bag!
oh my gosh! this is the set to get for any survival situation, (that includes the rise of the living dead). i wish it was a little cheaper though. anyway, i so want it!!! =]
Saw it on Walking Dead. Worked amazing on show. Had to have it, got it. Works great!!! Just wish there was some zombies to try it on
this would be fine to keep you from getting killed in a zombie appocolipse maybe if they where real. but you could take a little bit of the lesser needed tools out and put in compartments and fire starters, fishing things and stuff to actually substain yourself and this would be epic. instead of a killing kit it should actually be a good survival kit.
Nice, I wish this was available without the knives.
A poor survival kit. Extremely limited tools, lack of necessary practical elements for survival. Do not buy
I consider Gerber to be 2nd to None.
I could not wait so I purchased the items by them selves.
How ever no Roll.
I have over 30 GERBER Items and I intend to buy more GERBER Gear..
man! This. Is. Amazing.! Please I want it! NOWWW! :D this could last me forever bro!. lol. imma go kill some dummies with this thing to practice bro! who would ever think that i person like me (girl) who would want ittt! man!
I tallied it up. All of these individually from the official Gerber website is $401. Just FYI.
All I want for fathers day is this. :(
I totally need this
Looks awesome! PLEASE ship to Australia
This kit is very cool, and probably useful to have around anyways. I just think its hilarious to read all the reviews from people who seem to legitimately be interested in this kit because they think zombies are really coming. Very entertaining. I love the enthusiasm. Keep 'em coming guys.
for a regular survival kit, okay; but really? for this kind of equipment to be a goto for zombie survival unless your also going to invest in full body armor you won't stand a chance with this kit its all close combat tools and most of these kinds of tools have a very limited # of uses
these weapons are cool but the problem is tho only wepons you would use is the axe ,machete, and axe shaped machte.what geber needs to ad is a crowbar, shovel, sword, trench knife, hammer, and a gun
too expensive and mostly impractical. i would buy the ax and maybe the machete. better quality folders are availible at better prices too. get off of the hype of tv people
So siked, just ordered mine, looks like an excellent, reliable and useful kit.
I WISH I COULD AFFORD THIS FOR MY HUSBAND'S BIRTHDAY MONDAY!!!! So Awesome!
It is a nice kit. It would be great for camping or in a emergency/survival kit. But it is rather impractical to carry that around. And the price is a wee bit too hefty for my taste. I can pick up a good used pistol for that price.
Have you heard of the miami zombie attack after that there have been like 3.
please i want it
I NEED THIS MAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! C'MON AND RELEASE SOME MORE!!!!!!!!
PUT IT ON PERMANENT STOCK PLEASE~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
really? the only useful thing in this kit would be the machette and ax, anything else youd be to close, seriously people use common sense
U need to make this kit available .Freaking awesome, Zombies or not
you would never carry on your person a kit like this... great for a camp, but totally impractical for personal self defense from a zombie horde...
you can buy all these products individually for half the price...
A guy in miami just ate another man's face, zombies man, zombies...
Are you holding these back until the Apocalypse is right around the corner? Then you'll jack up the price tenfold? That's not cool, shipping will probably not be available then, so you'll have no way to get the product to consumers anyway. Money won't even matter. Go ahead and put them for sale now, so you can get the profits and buy guns, hummer's, foodstuff, etc. Just sayin....
Just have this yesterday afternoon. I been waited for few month to get it, but now. WooooOhh!!!! Love you Gerber!!!!!
I WANT IT NOW !!!! THEY'RE COMMING…
Seriously, this kit is boss. If you can get it in stock permanently, I'll buy one as soon as you put it up for sale. But I'm not going to try gambling for 5 a Day and hope I get lucky. When the zombies come, taking risks gets you eaten. That's why I need the kit, to eliminate the stupid risks and keep me, and my non-zombified loved ones safe.
i dont really see the point in that many weapons because you wont really need that many
In season 2 of the walking dead isn't this what Carl found in the pick up BTW this is totally worth the price you never know when the apocalypse could happen I already have my kit but its not this one Gerber is to expensive for me
Yes this kit was seen in The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 1.
But why can't I buy it? I want it now. My credit card is waiting.
Want to order one for myself and a PJ who could use this. is it ever going to become available?
I am waiting too!!!!!
Come on!! alot of people have been waiting a long time for this!! please bring it back
I already own all of these , bought seperately, i have to carry them in a sports bag ??they are my favorites for all hunting and camping needs. !! I need this kit real bad !!!
40k Facebook Likes? Someone in IT needs to take this to someone in Marketing at Gerber and they need to get that over to someone in Manufacturing so that Sales can get it to MEEE.
i am still waiting
Father's Day is just around the corner... (just sayin')
We need this now! Bring it back. You have a lot of disappointed people waiting!
PLEASE HAVE THIS PRODUCT IN STOCK BY DECEMBER 2012!!!!!!!!!!!
please put in in stock
want it, need it, can't buy it?
Nice but too pricey. I will create my own version picking similar weapons.
Purchased this through your Facebook promo. Looking forward to adding it to my bug-out bag.
outstanding value, i would love to own this set
Gerber, you're sitting on a gold mine. The demand is there. People are willing to part with the money.
Let's get cracking. Get this product out ASAP.
In the pic, the tools should be laid out, on the kit bag. Even though the tools can be looked up individually, it makes for a more appealing and sellable view.
Hurry Up and make some more of these...I want one so bad
I would buy this right now... if it was available. CEO needs to see the money making possibility here. I guess I will have to buy the zombie knives from Ka-Bar instead.
.....need this set
Please bring it back!
I would buy it now for myself and all my friends!
You guys need to get this back on the market you could make a lot of money with all the people who want this.
Bring this back. I would buy this so hard.
By bringing this set back, GERBER would be ensuring the survival of mankind! Please bring it back!
Get your ass into gear gerber. The apocalypse waits for no man.
ive survived the horror in africa, ive battled my way through lifeless cities, ravaging monsters and slashed my way out of tough situations (given the right type of face, arm and legs protectors) but the weapons i used could not come back to the states with me given i couldnt get them through customs and even if i could have they had lingering flesh and blood therefor a contaminant and possibly a biohazard to the united states. the weapons seen here are more than suitable for the job only things missing is a crowbar hammer and small shovel but those are easier to come by so no worries. Though i do suggest to the Gerber Team to market theses items again in a bundle like shown because they will prove useful soon enough. Believe me.
OMG! Perfect! Bring it back!!!
please make these available again, i want to buy them for myself and all my brothers.
Shut up and take my money
Out of Stock?
Are you going to make moore?
If So let us know?
I would buy this tomorrow if it was for sale
Just don't get it why can't Gerber bring this back. They would instantly sell like 1000 of these :(
When are you getting more apocalypse kits in? I've been checking for weeks, its always out of stock........what's up?
Why would you stop making this? I was going to buy it, and still will, if it comes back
gimme gimme gimme!
Great idea! Why do i have the thought that Black Water is buying this? Anyway, I WANT IT!!!!!!!!!!
Gerber needs to bring back this product if they are looking to make money. Just look at the demand on this review page.
Gerber needs to bring back this product if they are looking to make money. Just look at the demand on this review page.
Awsome set... PLEASE bring back i would love to add this to my inventory and put it to use killing some zombies err i mean camping
Look up the reviews of ALL these things, none of this would be good for a Zombie apocalypse, going camping yeah. zombie apocalypse no. (By the way, NO pocket knife IS EVER good for Zombies, and a 1/4th tang in the gator? one swing and that thing will fly off!)
please bring it back it would be a real pain to buy each tool one by one. and you would be stupid not to listen to all of these reviews because you are passing up a lot of money
I really hope these are available by Christmas, it will be one stop shopping!
u need to bring itback cause i really want it
Please bring it back can't wait to buy!
Gotta get this.
When will this kit be back in stock? I NEED one fast! How will I survive the onslaught of walking dead without it?? Hurry and bring them back!!
CANNOT wait to order!!
would love to purchase an Apocalypse Survival Kit the second they get them back in stock!!
The Walking Dead S02E01 was that the whole set :)
HURRY THIS NEEDS TO BE IN STOCK!! I AM DYING TO GET MY HANDS ON IT!
Whao, very nice kit at a sweet price. One problem however and that is why would anyone (Especially Gerber) sell a kit like this WITHOUT a multitool? That's insanity.
Mine finally shipped today and is to be delivered on the 21st.
this really needs to be in stock, right now. I want to buy this!!
I would've given it 5 stars had it contained a chainsaw and a boom stick.
Such an awesome quality set found it on allcoolshit.com and bought the Camp Axe and DMF folder through them.
391 is the total price if you were to buy them all separately. you also get a nice case for everything so its worth it if thats what you want
I must say that this is a wonderful product. I love the case design and if I could give my own opinion. They should sell the case as a product. I need something like that to put my weapons in.
Why is this out of stock?
I love the look of this kit..... I wish I could get this in the UK!
Amazing. Use them all the time.
oka so i added all the prices of every knife and tool on amazon and got a price of 281.22. the "kit' cost 349.00 plus s and h
so theres a 67.78 diffrence.trust me i would buy this but only sepretly.the only diffrence is you dont get the sheath.if only they sold the sheath seperatly X( and i would give this a 5* but pricee range so its a 3.sorry gerber
the parang and the axe are the only two articles in this kit that are worth anything if your were "really" to be out in the wilderness. the knives are made of inferior steel, and are of questionable design for real world situations. of course, if you talking about hollywood fantasies, then, no worries.
NEVER carry a gun, they will bring the horde so I carry a old wooden sword and be careful with noises that make loud sounds and I agree with carring a Bio-suit and 3 machetes instead of 2 and the person that says it needs first aid and it should carry something like a cloak with a hood and also needs tent for shelter and it needs something throwable and long like a arrow and I know that when the neighborhood goes to the zombies Im gonna run to town steal a school bus carrying one of these and get survivors and hand these out to each survivor
seriously the zombies are probably not going to come but the knive set would be awesome to kill carp in canals and low ponds/lakes the set is awesome!!!
Thank god Gerber finally realized that the best thing to get you through a zombie outbreak is a product endorsed by Bear Grylls. The other survivors will be so envious.
It's a detached irony that your machete will sport Halloween colors on the day that the dead really do rise from their graves. Perhaps this kit would be more complete with some Tootsie Rolls and Smarties to throw to the advancing undead horde.
Anyone who relies on handheld cutlery to repel zombies clearly didn't think to attach a bayonet to their combat shotgun. You only have two hands; why seven blades? Thanks for slowing down the zombies for us real survivors, rookies.
I really enjoy this it isnt loud supplys weapons and would most like;y provide you with the means to get food. Good choice for survival kits.
Also it would be nice if you included a Bio-suit they will keep you from the blood stains and infections.
Yea, person that gave two stars. you obviously arent ready for a zombie attack: 3 machetes better than 2 so when one gets stuck in an undead's cranium..
If you where to buy them all separately it would cost you more so a good bargin
This is a much better deal then buying separately...don't be an idiot.
This is just what every man needs, an amazing set of amazing cutlery for protection
This kit will work perfect for africa. Traveling at time through the hardest african terian it will be reassuring to have this on the back off my toyota cruiser. Just at 300$ it will be a while before i will gwt myself one. All and all great job GERBER!!
@ the idiot who said guns are for the zombie apocalpse. would you rather have something quick and quiet or someting loud that will bring the entiritey of the horde strait to you....knife = less aggro
guns= you dieing instantaniasley.
APOCOLYPSE OF AWESOME!!!!!
priced separately on amazon it comes to 275
so if the canvas sack is worth the 75 bucks for you hit it up.
just got my kit today!! super stoked it's pretty cool check out my review i did on youtube here http://youtu.be/4heJ3a2fZOQ
Pretty cool but not worth 300$, who needs three machetes, it come with two good ones, and a crappy on, and the lmf is such. Good knife, why need the other two? And FYI if u don have GUNS fr the ombie apocalypse, u r screwed, thank you, but no thank you
Just received my kit today. Wow. This thing was put together with some thought. Even if you're not particularly into the whole "Zombie Apocalypse" hype, This makes the perfect kit for camping. It's got everything. Great job Gerber! You made a believer out of me!
amazing quality, will definetely save lives and take names
Winning!!!!! I freakin love this!!! Definately good for many uses; especially for military and police; hunters, you too!!!
i think this was in the walking dead season 2.
The case should have a copy of zombie survival guide, complete Walking Dead graphic novels, and an awesome logo saying GERBER Zombie Tactical Support Kit.
Genius....Just plain genius. The sheer cheek of this marketing ploy is wonderful.
Things are starting to get odd with all those weird stories we've been hearing about on the news. Any way, as a precaution, i just ordered this kit. Hopefully it gets here befor-- BLAGG! AHHHRRGGGGHHHH...........................BLARRGGGGGG! BLARRGGHHH!
you cant beat the zombie, join the zombie.
And it comes with a "Lifetime Warranty" cause when that machete handle breaks off in the skull of a zombie, you can march right over to Gerber and demand your money back...LOL
a pack of awesomeness...
I'm ready for zombies
and got a whole plan waiting
hate to break it to you, but this is not going to happen...... however the fact that you can own all this for the price offerd is a very good deal.
kick butt set. Now if only a vest was to be made to hold the same knives.. Gerber makes the best knives.
You had me at hello.
Lifetime Warranty is no good. IF the equipment fails and you die, or worse, if you become a zombie, the lifetime warranty no longer applies. What kind of a warranty is that? Give us a lifetime / Walking Dead warranty at the very least ;)
Pretty good deal on some amazing blades.
i wish this didn't cost so gosh darn much ! this is def something one would LOVE to own .
If only they had a gun!
Sad but true ways to ID zombies:
Known to attack in packs
Samurai Sword / Katana for longer range
and a smaller version / Wakizashi in case the undead come too close.
In case the capitated head keeps on biting, just finish it off later. Wear sturdy boots though.
For practical use... Wielding these blades along with Kendo training will be better against those wielding knives.
That ax is taller than me! Awesome!!!
I won a few of them a while back. They are really sturdy machetes, but aren't very sharp.
This is a must have. Those who are prepared will SURVIVE...
I already have the BG Parang, the LMF and the Epic... Wouldn't get rid of a single one of 'em. On a different note, the individual cases for the Parang and the Epic were really lame... Better to get them in this fashion.
These are nice tool and great knifes, the problems I see are; these tools are also gonna have to double as zombie killing weapons, you only need one machete, the hatchet, and a short knife. I would consider buying something like this if the tools were easier to access and a crow bar would be prefered to the second machete. Great idea though.
this is nice, add a flamethrower and you are set for zombies, i understand that not being in the kit tho as i dont think u can ship everything u need for that
waste of money. I can buy a machete that is many times stronger and sharper from cold steel for 20 dollars. State of the art.
So your life time warranty...does that stay in affect after the zombie Apocalypse happens? I want to know who I have to contact then!
Great set! Gerber makes awesome blades. Just wonder if the lifetime warranty would still be honored during a zombie apocalypse....
I recently got this kit to add to my Subaru WRX and gun collection. "I've got food for 40 days, gallons of water, first aid and propane and some wine to entertain. I'm always planning for the worst. I've signed my will right after birth. I've got my eulogy rehearsed."
I'm getting this...just because it's cool! :)
This is sad. You can buy this equipment for 150 from your local store. Dont waste your money
I just bought FIVE of these. IM BADASSER!
Too funny.... VERY NICE set though
Received my kit today and am very pleased?
5min on a stone and all the little blades are shaving edge..
the larger blades with the exception of the large machete came fairly sharp with only some stoning req'd...the big machete will certainly take alot more grinding to get it sharp.
Overall pleased with the purchase and happy it indeed ships with the LMF II instead of the machete junior. It comes with one stone with the gator machete pro and pleasently pleased to see another sharpener with the LMF II Sheath.
Can't wait to get mine and build my fort for the zombie apocalypse.
A must have
I just bought four of these. Im a Badass.
I haven't tried this yet, but it's DEFINITELY going on my birthday/Christmas list!
I'm starting a piggy bank for this... Mamma knows what to bring to pappardelle for Christmas now!
I just bought the axe ll and hunting knife from another site. Now I seen this well I guess I'll have an extra LOL. Am getting this next week. Oh BOY. I can just hear my boyfriend ANOTHER ONE .....
Gerber.. first of all you deserve kudos for a brilliant marketing idea. The Walking dead tie-in was inspired. Now as to the gear itself.
I have never used or encountered a bad product from Gerber, and these implements are uniformily well made. I do a lot of camping, and in fact had assembled a sort of similar kit myself, but when I saw the Apocalypse Kit, I was impressed enough to acquire several of the items, and package my own kit. I am especially liking the Gator Pro machete, the extra weight on the head gives more kinetic energy for cleaving brush and limbs (tree). The Parang is a handy size and short enough to weild effectively, and the machete with saw back is a nice dual purpose tool.
Gerber, if you do read these reviews, I have a suggestion. To my kit I added a small pry/crow bar and a short shovel/spade with a sharpened blade. The shovel can be used as a digging tool, chopping implement, self defense weapon ( see Russian Spetsnaz for throwing tips) and scraping/prying utensil. Just my two cents.
This kit is very good for killing zombies and camping. The axe is great for chopping wood, but the parang is not very sharp but still love the kit and i'm still surviving
I have used some of the components before. They are light weight but effective. I am now ready to defend my homestead against any and all aliens dead or alive!
This is the best equipment I have seen.
in a long time . I have gerber products and used them in the corp. They last better and longer than most equipment and the workmenship and quality is perfect. I recommed them to anyone!
Kit is definitely cool. mind you , the larger knives and machetes are not sharp at all -- I am assuming that they could be sharpened if you wanted to. I actually prefer them dull, since I'm mainly using them for props in zombie-themed shoots. Smaller knives are awesome, and fully functional.
it looks really cool im going to save up for it :)
You know what would be nice? Actual product reviews. NOT lame jokes/puns about zombies.
Do a little research and buy a quality product that will provide years of use.
this kit was on the show the walking dead just putting it out there.
i am saving up for this package it looks great i hope it proves to be as cool as the show the walking dead.
Bought this and love it.. Can't wait for the apocalypse to come so I can use it on some Zombies..
If dat happens ur probley are going to survive
Wat ru gonna do get it out and use it like a man
Awesome set.....!! I need this....
You save $42 with the bundle instead of buying them separetly.
I missed the first run of this. I luv the zombie novelty few corp are riding on currently. Didn't see any vampire kits... I love my kit this time round... Thanks Gerber!
I could use some repeated "Thanking" too...great kit!!!
This is awesome, but it should include the bear grylls ultimate survival knife too
That is beyond words! it is awesome just to have but hey I could see it having practical uses to! anyway just awesome, can't wait to get
There is a sharpening stone in this kit - it is included on the Gator Machete Pro
Dear Santa,i realy need this :)
great looking kit, it was also a great idea to have it on the walking dead
I'll be getting this to add to my Zombie Survival Gear. Amazing!
i want it! i want it! i want it!
Will the canvas bag be available for purchase???? I bought all the items last year, without the bag. Come on Gerber!!!!! Help out your fans......
Awsome set, great on the show and for real life. Would love to have this kit to go camping, every man should have this kit in his garage...
if i win that i will be the world luckies people :)
will this ever go on sale in the UK or is it too cool
WOW, Way Cool!!!! Man this is definitely going to be on my Christmas list.
$350.. it was about that time that i noticed that the salesman was about 30 feet tall and from the Paleolithic Era. i was like "dang loch Ness monster leave my family alone."," but i would like to buy this set from you before you leave.."
This kit is a joke. Gerber makes some nice stuff, I have a LMF II on my vest/belt, and a couple of Gators for the cars, but the rest of this stuff isn't that useful. You can find better axes and folders, and the parang isn't that great.
Having a sharpener, fire starter, and a rescue tool would have really help round this kit out.
I got the Gator Machete as a xmas gift & now i need to complete my kit.
This is a must have kit!
Yes! Females love weapons as well ^_^
'cause the guy who gave me the machete was "thanked" repeatedly for getting me that ;)
I don't. Have any of these put could use a set. Single woman living in the woods never know when a Walker/ zombie might come out of the woods.sure would feel a. Whole lot safer with this kit.
Regardless of whether it's really used to fight Zombies, it's still a nice set and would be great for any survival kit for ANYTHING. (what if you get stranded while camping? or your car breaks down in the middle of no where where there are no cell towers and no traffic to help you??)
If you want to get up close and personal with flesh eating zombies, this kit will do the trick. Me, I perfer a 12 gauge and a full size axe. A Colt Python at the ready, incase they moan back at me.
The apocolypse survival tools are awesome. That carl kid has a good eye to spot that.
I want the kit so bad but as a student that is too much money for me to spend at one time. so I hope the Apocalypse is not in the next two or three years.
I would totally love to get these.
AWESOME, HOPE I WIN ONE FROM THE FACEBOOK CONTEST!!! IF NOT, I WILL SURELY BE BUYING A KIT!!! NOT ONLY WILL IT BE GOOD FOR ZOMBIES, BUT FOR HUNTIN AS WELL!!! AND BY THE WAY, CHICKS LOVE THIS SHIT TOO!!! AS I AM ONE!!!!! BRING IT ON ZOMBIES!!!!
I use a smaller version of the axe for fire fighting duties already. Gerber makes some outstanding stuff, I certainly would love this kit for brush fires, MVA's and other misc tasks that I run into.
Nothing to sharpen the goodies! come on Gerber we all know in the post apocalypse that a dull blade will get you dead, and I wont be able to send it to the factory since the postman wont be there.
I wish I could justify getting this "just in case" but alas I have not come up with a good justification yet. But I'll keep trying!
I am someone's wife and I would let my hubby buy this. lol
knives are dope
Every item in this go-bag is essential to survival. If you run out of ammo your only recourse is edged weapons. These tools are both for basic survival and self-defense. This is something I would and will be proud to own.
I'm a woman and I wouldn't stop my man from buying this hell I might take it from him if he does get it every woman for themselves in the apocalypse
I'm someone's wife and I don't "let" my husband do anything. He's a grown man. That said - we both are mad about these tools. I have the gator machete next to my bed. My husband has the Parang with him everywhere he goes. Now I just need the others. :) Awesome awesome kit!
I may be a woman, but I want to be prepared for the zombie apocalypse! These knives are just right for the task!
where's the shotgun?
what are you talking about, these knives are kick ass
I am buying this for my boyfriend for his bday! He want's it sooo bad. I don't see the point, but what's it going to hurt!
looks like a sweet kit,wheres the ammo holders? @sombodys wife,you wont be anybodys wife for long if ya dont git the kit cuz you will be zombie feed!
No woman may let their man spend $350 on a "knives to fight zombies", but if the man already bought and is holding one of these zombie fighting pieces of art, I don't think she'd really question him. Or, he could do like I am going to and hide it from her! Ha ha ha ha!
These tools are all high quality multiple function precision instruments well worth the pricw, forget the zombies they have great general utility... Oh and many wives let there husbands buy $1000 + rifles for zombie shooting matches so $349 doesn't seem so much...
It isn't that expensive as far as tools go and the awesome factor is priceless. :)
I am glad my husband got one. I tried to get him one for xmas,but they were not available.
If you are a WOMAN, this is a must have. Women are capable of kicking ass too, boys.
This is awesome! Will the carrying case ever be available separately? I already own most of the items that come in the kit but would LOVE to the purchase the case to carry it all by itself. Please make available!!!
I dont think any woman will ever let their man spend 349 dollars on knives to fight zombies.... Really guys???
If you are a..MAN this is a must have. This will solve any obstacle that is in your way. To bad gerber doesn't make guns, the world would be such a better place.
When in doubt, cut it out!
best sharp blades ever.........can i get som made of Adamantium?! xD
Rick wouldn't act like a man, so I popped off the lock on the barn and let mayhem take its course......this kit saved my life several times....
kinda cool, but the machete is not full-tang...
lugging around 50lbs of steel is not very stealthy. short rang weapons are not good either. your kit fails sir.
thanks gerber i have 4 of your nives and all are the most amasing knives ever but put a flint in the kits that works next time .
and sharpen the machetes there dull .
This ships on my BIRTHDAY!!! Come on Gerber send me a free one just for that! Haha. Perfect Birthday Present, man!
sweet blades love to own them.
i live in alaska it would be great for where i live.
Zombies goin DIE!
Please sell case separately too, for all of us that bought the tools individually while you were sold out of the kit.
If you're going to call it a survival kit then you should at least include a sharpening tool, seriously.
i would love to have this kit but sadly i cannot afford it. Guess i will add it to my list of things to find when zombies attack!!!
I was sold till i realized that there was a bear grills tool sold in the kit. Come out with a kit made by Les Stroud and we might talk.
Gerber has really outdone themselvesd this time! How cool would it be to have this "just in case"! You never know what might happen, but I dont see any undead surviving this arsenal! Or you could just get it to freak your girlfriend out... I know mine is g
Well this is the kit i want cause those items in that package dont run out of ammo muahahahaha Lets get to hackin
I am in dire need of that kit, it would definitely anty up my collection, not to mention it would make me look like the camping and fishing master!! I'll take one please and thank you!!
1. $350!!!!!!! Which gives you:
- some blades
- some machetes (love my Gator personally)
- a camp axe (good but cheaper separate)
2. No FIRE KIT!!! Whaaa? That deserves a forehead slap for sure!
3. No SHARPENING KIT!!! I'm in disbelief now.
4. No FIRST AID whatsoever..not even a bandaid??
5. Made In China!!! Whaaa? That needs to be discussed with Chuck Norris
Overall a piss poor Survival Kit..period. You wouldn't last long with this. My advice..dump all but the machete and axe and find some way to attach the canvas to your neck ;-)
I tried ordering for months before Christmas. Today I see you are selling them again. My son's birthday is February 27th. You aren't shipping until after March 5th. grrrrrrrr
this is so stupid you zombie nerds
bLEArhrHGGGhh BBraaaaggHhhH BlaaAAGRGGHHHHH!!!
T/L: I hate this kit it makes hunting ppl hard!!!
theres a horde right outside my house!!!! ive been surviving for awhile but there starting to get closer!!!! HEEELLLP.
Where's the fire starter?
@NADEMAN, What do you own that ISN'T made in China? China owns.
I totally want one. Can't be too prepared for the coming zombie invasion!
The only thing that's made in Oregon in this kit, is the LMF II Infantry. At least from my knowledge..
every hummer in the army and marines needs a kit like these.
were stuck outside and theres a zombie horde coming, help!!!!!!!!!!!!
As much as I love this kit and the show TWD, if this stuff is made in China, I want nothing to do with it! Made is the USA ONLY!!!
title says it all
Why are these so expensive? the dang individual tools sold separately are cheaper. Are you saying that the case costs around 100 bucks?
My Apocolypse Tool Kit is Free and All Inclusive:
Faith, Love, Peace, Joy
The Blood of Jesus!
I have to agree with Always Prepared James - FEB 13, 2012, "This would be an absolutely EPIC kit if it were MADE IN OREGON and not in flipping China."....WHAAAAT ?! Madein CHINA????!!!
yall better be 'pared for this here 'pocalypse coming in December. yall this world is gon' end an' we gon' die, but if you have this here kit, you can save y'self and fam'ly. i bet yall after fiddy kills, these too's are gon' be purty dull. well worth the money even in a low incum household.
A tool no zombie hunter can do with out!
This would be an absolutely EPIC kit if it were MADE IN OREGON and not in flipping China.
great kit, got it today killed about ten zombies,good for cutting bread and trees.
The kit is pretty well stocked except for a way to sharpen them after about 50 zombies you'll need to touch up the edge on the machette or it will make you tired real fast
That is one all-purpose collection of gear. There is a tool for every need just short of hunting game, and with this set, a bow and some arrows is not far behind.
It seems spectacular
$350 for a bunch of stuff I wouldn't use. No thanks. Also, I have to have a facebook account the enter the contest? Again, no thanks.
This is the most awesomest tool kit ever it would be as like the thunder and lighting of Zeus but it could...but in reality it is a very good tool kit...very good in building shelter fire build trap making and making other tools...but would be even better if it was inpelemented into a backpack survival kit.
Love the products but sell the roll up kit seperately. I have most of the tools already and some of your better knives I can use instead.
i want this for my birthday!!!!!!
Glad you brought these back
Buying three... I'm not missing this again
I only trust Gerber gear. Whether it be for animals or flesh eating humans. I right now and have for the past 5 years use my Gerber Rex Applegate Covert Folder W E Fairbairn ATS-34.The one weapon you can always count on in the ultimate survival game called life. These tools would not go unused if I won, but none the less, I hope who ever wins uses it with care and caution. Good Luck everyone!
I love that "Epic" is one of the features!
So happy they brought back the set...ordered mine right away
I say Gerber should donate one to the Boy Scout Troupe!
always liked the Gerber products, ever since my first gator.
omg such a sweet kit everything you could need in a servival kit ...all i need now is medi kits and water and bring on the zombies
I want one!
if I won this I would donate it to my son's Boy Scout Troop----- you never know what will show up at camp at night !!!
Why in the world would you stop selling this?!?
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE restock this soon!!! i REALLY want to buy this AMAZING set of tools! What an AMAZING idea! + it's nice to see Gerber expanding their consumer demographic! if you make tools for ANYTHING, why not sell them for ANY OCCASION?! Good Job Gerber!!!
BRING IT BACK!!!!!!!!!!! before december
yes i love i want one....
Bring the Kit back, I will buy it for sure!
Credit Cards waiting.....
This is the kit used in the tv show «The walking Dead» which is a post apocaliptic world full of zombie. Get inform before posting something that make you look like an idiot
It's crap like this why I have totally no confidence anymore in what once used to be a good brand.
dale lost ours in the creek, we could use another
You should check out the reviews on the individual items. It appears the case is the only useful item.
I want to buy. Why no buy?
I love the concept
I guess they stopped selling these because if chuck norris got wind of this modern marvel...the world would end much sooner than December 21, 2012.
To Make money you sell stuff people want... like this.. restock.
BRING THIS BACK! Or at least how do I get the case?
Bring it back, before....
Shut up and take my money!
Bring it back!

I marked one star in hopes of getting more attention.
and the fact I can't give it a real review because I can't buy it :(
Don't taze me brah
I likey! Please take my money.
Why do companies develop unique products that gather lots of interest to only discontinue selling them? Unless I am understood the core fundamentals of a business is to make a profit. Does Gerber like profits?!
Please bring this back! They will sell like hotcakes and I will take 2...
I found out when it was too late, YOU guys need to bring it back PLEASE!!!!
I will buy this today if you bring it back into stock. Please.
Bring it back or cancel the post
I've been saving up to get this. Please bring it back.
I really think this needs to come out BEFORE the next season starts. The Roll is the best thing out there, and my children are needing me to protect them!
Please, please, please bring this kit back!
What kind of company doesn't cater to the customer demands? LAME! No sense of business smarts what so ever.
please bring back!!!!!
bring it back pleeease. i will buy one.
RESTOCK IF YOU LIKE PROFITS
Would love to have one of these Kits.
Please bring it back.
I know this is just another to a very long list of people begging to bring it back, but doesn't that say something? Bring it back!! When I saw this on the Zurvived podcast (zurvived.it) I knew I wanted it...and now it's gone? btw to all zombie fans, the url is zurvived.it and I have seen every episode, the official podcast of the Zombie Research Society (which I am also a lifetime member of) and it is legit, and is totally worth you seeing.
I'll buy one, too.
Bring it back. It came and went before I even noticed.
At the very least, make the tool roll available.
I will buy one!!
I was disappointed when my wife told me my Christmas present was no longer available. Please bring the Apocalypse Kit back. All these Z-Day weapons belong in a kit...and I want my Christmas present!!!
I need one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
bring this back! instead of understock it should be overstocked!
whats taking so long...
I just found out about this today and would like to purchase 10 of them as gifts.
Discontinued????? But the Apocalypse is nigh!!!!!!
I recently infected my neighbor and noticed he was attempting to order this product online but could not. I am alive because of you, Gerber. Thank you. PS now I have a fellow zombie friend to play shuffle board with.
I believe this is a great product to have but i found that you could buy all these weapons on Amazon for around $254 but without the carrying case.
Please bring back the Apocalypsel kit!
OMG - I so want one, this is the coolest collection, and marketing gimmick, ever. :)
WTF - Sold out already? Well fudge, I just found out about it and its already gone. :(
i keep checking online for D-Day kits this is the best hands down. bring it , & updated it.
I NEED one!!
Please bring it back...
please re-release this I will be saving my money for this great collectors item
Bring it back, i will two or three- shoulda marketed it more though
I just gave you guys the win for the best marketing campaign... guess you also get a "fail" for worst follow through.
Bring it back and I will buy at least 2 sets!

This needs to come back!! This is awesome!!
Look at all the requests to bring it back, think of the profit! You could mark it up 20% and no one would care! We want this. Clearly.
Bring it Back!
Don't worry, they just want to ramp up demand. When the new season of Walking Dead starts I guarantee they revive it. In the meantime, there are better knives out there.
BRING THIS BACK NOW!!!1!ONE!
WTF seriously? I saw this in the show and spent days searching around in Gerbers sites trying to find it and NEVER could. Today I get linked in from some lame gadget round up article, and wham! NO LONGER AVAILABLE. Not cool. Gerber could've had my $350 now I'm just gonna go buy 10 Leatherman tools for spite.....

Dear Gerber, it's a No Brainer, I have lots of knives, and some Gerbers, I would like to increase my collection of Gerber by seven, but only if I can get it all togeather with the carrying case. No Brainer, I win, Gerger wins.
Just viewed on the Fox News Web page, can't believe this item is no longer available. Need to bring this back soon.

greatest thing since sliced bread, but the still sell sliced bread.
BRING IT BACK!!!!!
I wish I could give a great review but was really let down when I received an email confirmation from Gerber that they were not making this item anymore and each item had to be purchased separately. What about the case Gerber!!!
For the love of all middle aged men; BRING THIS BACK!
What was the price of this kit? If its anything like the single prices then I see why its no longer available.
Bring it back! Some of us didn't know it existed until it was already gone!

well i see a ton of people say bring it back and it doesnt look like it is so i doubt my opinion makes a difference but just in case i say bring it back but make it kit II and have it back pack style with extra pockets for other stuff, if it is for apocalypse better have some ammo pouches or just extra compartments for alot of things be like survival pack. side note the rubber grip knife is my favorite knife i"ve ever owned. thank you military for buying it for us
We need the kit! We MUST survive! Bring It Back!
Tell'em Jon Gun sent'cha.

Please bring it back, and take my money !!!
Bring it back...and take my money !!!
When are you going to release a 2nd edition? I am sure I saw a few zombies wandering around at work the other day and I need to get prepared!
I run a modest, free range zombie farm (100% organic) in the southwestern mid atlantic and this kit would be ideal for processing the harvest. I demand this be made available to the public again. perhaps in the form of some kind of stimulus package or subsidy. Seriously, this is not a request.
I miss ya so damn much... I miss your looks... I miss your availability..
This needs to be back!
Please sell me one of these kits before it's too late? forget about all of these other people, I am willing to pay double the retail price for it...
Please sell me one of these kits before it's too late? forget about all of these other people, I am willing to pay double the retail price for it...

Please bring this back, I just discovered it! I want one!
Please do another production run! At the very least, please offer the carrying case as a separate item for sale. I'll buy the set one by one if need be.
Just heard about these now, and I hope that they release a second edition for a longer production run!
We all need this kit. I need this kit.
Bring this back there has to be a high demand for these to prepare ourselves for the apocalypse
SOLD!! BRING TTHIS KIT BACK!! BUT MAKE IT LIKE A BACK PACK, HANDS FREE FOR OTHER WEAPONS!!
I know we can "collect" all of the blades in this kit but it would be nice to have it brought back, even if for limited time, so that we can get the carrying case also!
Ring it back so i can buy one!
I want one. Bring it pack pls !
Bring it back. Now.

I WANT!! please bring back. if you don't, and zombies eat my flesh, the blood will be on your hands.
Bring it back! Bring it back!
I was never aware this kit was made until now and I want one.
Wife came here to buy the set for me for xmas, with limited quantities obviously sold out, she bought me all the tools. Looking to buy the carrying case.
Can you at least let us know if you will be mass producing the case? I know this has been asked already but an update would be nice.
Please bring these back
Come on gerber, start making these again. Give the people what they want
I DONT WANT MY LIFE TOP END, MY HAMSTER COLLECTION IS GROWING AND I CANT LEAVE THEM> PLEASE & THANK U
I was coming here to spend that Christmas cash...and it's discontinued!?!?!?
Please bring it back!!!
When customers scream for product, you generally make it available. You don't have to be Steve Jobs to figure that one out...
You guys are sitting on a gold mine and don't realize it!
Great kit why can't we get it, struggling to buy all7 on there own in uk...we want them here to
Useless unless it is in stock!
Why is this on the website but out of stock? Just to create demand? SELL IT ALREADY!
I WANT ONE NAOOOO
At least Gerber should sell the case alone in case we buy the tools aparts.
is coming we need proection
Please bring this back.
Have you ever heard of a company that didn't want to move merch?
i love this idea great gift! I would by 5
Just opened my xmas present late. My wife got it for me. She hates zombies too. Awesome set.
Please for human sake. dont make me kill the zombies all cliche style & shoot them in the head i wanna at least have some fun during the apocalypse.
Bring it back!! just do it!
Bring it back, it will only increase your profits.
i really want u guys to bring back the apocalypse kit as soon as possible im very interested in it
Please it's 2012 we need this item now!!!
Please bring back this great set. This one of the best collaboration sets that I have seen in a long time.
I WANT ONE! BRING IT BACK!
WHY, O WHY DID YOU TAKE THIS OFF THE MARKET?!?! IT IS GREAT! I WANT ONE! BRING IT BACK!!!!
If it comes back people will obviously buy this fine product. What if there is an Apocalypes, people will be unprepared.
I want 2. Please bring it back
please,bring this item back.
Please make more. They will sell.
This is the Apocalypse Kit telling my makers to bring me back and make me available to the public once again.
Bring it back, and protect humanity, Gerber. Or perhaps your capitalist motivation negates any altruism you may have experienced. Five stars on reproduction.
Plz bring it back
Please bring this back!!
If I would have known this set excited EVERY ONE of my siblings, parentals and close friends would have one!!!!
I want to order it.
for all of our sakes! sell us the tools we need to survive!
This is a good set....please bring it back....if I get turned into a zombie.....I'm going for the guy that discontinued this set!!!!
Gerber sales would skyrocket if this Apocalypse Kit was made available. Instead of selling "onesies" and "twosies", those like us interested would buy the WHOLE set.
Think about it Marketing, your bottom line would increase and who doesn't like more sales and money?! It's yours to win or loose. No need to make it "Exclusive" Exclusivity does NOT make more money for GERBER, ONLY for those who have purchased it already and scamming it to sell at a stupidly higher price for themselves. Make more sales and make it available once again. Keep MADE IN AMERICA strong and your factory floor teaming with US workers. WIN-WIN.
When your gun goes "click, click" and no bang, gotta have the blades.
When can we buy this again. I check all the time! Please make it available!!! Awesome Idea!!
I bought the kit as a present when they reissued after the initial sale... bummer it came with NO EXTRA ANYTHING... no dvds or stickers...nada
I would love this item brought back in stock! I will not however by each piece separately !!!! But would buy the set.
come on... please get this back. i really need this so i can survive with an ultimate kit. and besides... we all know that zombies WILL rise for the dead some day.
You guys just sick of making money? Bring this thing back already
Please bring this back I need this set. Just like everyone else.
get this back in stock please
It would keep selling, if you just bring it back.
Are you going to ever have this back on the market???
BRING IT BACK PLEASE GERBER
It's a complete scam the people that bought this kit selling it on ebay for over $700 when you can buy all of the individual pieces for under $400. People are really paying the extra $300+ for the carrying case? That's ridiculous. Gerber should put a stop to it and either bring back the kit or sell the carrying case.
Get these back in stock would like to order some
Please bring it back. Please Please Please. I need it now. It's like an apocalypse here already.
Nawwww........this is the ultimate survival kit. I really, really, really want one.
PLEASE bring it back. I WILL BUY ONE or MORE......!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please bring this back! It would be the perfect gift! I'm so devastated I missed getting it! :(
I want one but can't have one now that they are all sold.
Please make this kit again.
I'd buy one straight away. If only there were more of these...
Got one for Xmas. It is wonderful! Can't wait to kick some undead butt! The DVD was a nice addition.
NICE set! However I would be replacing some these items with my own personal choice of blades.
Nonetheless as soon as these come back in stock, I'll be picking one of these up!!
Although I do agree with John (US Army SGT), it would be nice if you sold the case separately.
Bring this kit back!!!
Perhaps Gerber could at least consider re-issuing the roll able case for those with these or other suitable weapons. Get with the plan guys for humanities sake...and make a couple of bucks in the process!
I want one of these cases bad!!! Please consider selling just the carrying case. I already have several items from the kit, the bag would be a great addition to keep everything organized, and inspire me to complete the collection individually!
Need one........when are they going to be back in stock??????
Really Gerber should feel obligated to make more of these. They should feel terrible if zombies arise and I am unprepared and therefore my brains are removed from my head. Gerber has the fortunate opportunity to profit while arming people for the pending zombie apocalypse.
okay, we're begging. bring it back, please...
Im on a deployment making great money and I was just about to buy this.. but its out of stock.. sad day.. sadder Christmas.. I agree with what HUMBLE ZOMBIE KILLER just said..
Bring back this kit. I agree with the others, you will sell thousands of these kits.
MAN ! I hope and pray you guys get more.. I plan on buying a few one for me and other for family.... Get it together.
WHAT?!? Out of Stock??? Why in the World would you just put something like this out there for a limited time? You know, Gerber fans would snatch these up like hotcakes. Bring it back!!! Teasing like this will not get you far, Gerber...and it's just plain mean.
you should so bring this kit back i would by 2 as soon as they came out
at least sell the case so people can use it to put together the kit.
Please bring this kit back, you would make a fortune if you didn't limit them. I came here to buy one. You know some people people bought 5 or 6 and are selling them on eBay for twice the price. Please bring them back. Maybe remove the walking dead tie in, just make the same knives in a similar case and call it something else but please bring these back!
This item is low in quality and shouldn't be bought under any circumstances.
I wish I had seen this earlier. Please bring back this kit.
I would have ordered three of these sets for Christmas gifts (plus one for me), and am sorry to see they are all gone.
Come on Gerber, bring 'em back! You could claim to be the official knife/tool sponsor of the zombie resistance. Think of the marketing potantial.
Please...get more!! Wanna buy this great Kit!!
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Bring back the tools we need to survive. This such an awesome kit I can't believe that it is no longer available. For Shame, For Shame....
I'm thinking of purchasing some of the kit but I 'm waiting for Gerber to bring back Apocalypse Kit . I suguest you start selling it again Gerber cuz you would have my business and I've never heard of that TV show?????
I NEED one of these. However, i think that Gerber should also sell just the carrying case, for those individuals who already have numerous pieces of the set...please. And that's my 2 cents...
I was all ready to pick this set up and it is out of stock? Booooo!
Its christmas time, and I guarantee if you guys would've made more of these kits your company would've grown exponentially in a matter of a few short weeks. This is the greatest thing I believe you guys have made and I am asking...no begging you to bring this back. By the time I heard about it they were all sold out and I was unable to do so. Think about the zombies! We all need one of these!
Bought this for my boyfriend and needless to say, he loved it. I am glad I ordered it asap! Sorry for all those who missed out! :)
Love the extra gift. I got the first season and can't wait to watch the extra footage.
it looks great i know me and quite a few other people want to buy this product asap
Bought four of these as gifts for friends (including one for myself), and all arrived today. Sadly, only one of four came with a DVD, so now I have to go get those separately before xmas :( I was very impressed with the canvas case though, it's much nicer than expected.
Looks incredible! Get some more canvas bags and sell the kits!
Not sure why a company like gerber would only run a limited number of this amazing set. If you want your profits to go up, bring this kit back. I guarantee I would buy at least 3 of these. Gerber has always been my go to knife in the field. If I had this load out, I wouldn't buy another blade again.
That set is awesome. Please bring back. I have the Parang and the Gator. Two of the greatest survival machetes ever made. You guys are the best with knives, survival, and the zombie killing machetes. Keep up the great work.
If you dont bring it back you are loosing out on a lot of money. people WILL buy this if you bring it back
This kit sounds bad a$$, gerber can make alot of cash making more of these, any ideas when they're gonna market more? And I know I could get the knives sepperatly but I need atleast the carrying case that's the part that's hard to get
Would love to buy one, can you bring it back.
PLESE PLEASE make more of these!!! THANK YOU
.... You canceled this item... why?
What's the matter Gerber do you hate money?
I like the walking dead, but I don't buy crap I see on T.V. this is a fantastic survival kit for my jeep up in Alaska when I make that 5 hour drive from Anchorage to Clear AFB and I wanna buy it. So, if you guys could go ahead and let me give you my money that'd be great.
You should sell more of these!!! They were a big hit and more people want one :) please thank you!!
Do you realize exactly HOW MUCH MONEY you could make off of these kits if you just made more of them??
plz bring this back its awesome!
There's another kit going on eBay for less than the last one right now! I want it BAD!
You're overpaying because something has "Walking Dead" attached to it. You saw these in a TV SHOW about a MADE UP world. Get outside and choke a hare, then examine if you really think you can kill a sentient creature.
I want want want want want want want!
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE release more of these!!!!!
Just got my set today... so awesome! These undead weapons are top notch in quality! The feel of these items in your hands is just perfect. The Gator Machete Pro is especially nice when decapitating the undead!
There's already a set on ebay going for over $800.00!
The other nice touch was the extra that came with the set! Some people are getting a few extras it seems while others at least got what I did... *Spoiler Alert*
My set came with the special edition of Season 1 of The Walking Dead! Pretty cool!!!
Others are also getting stickers and a zombie survival guide... awesomeness!!!!
I am wanting to purchase a few of these for me and as gifts to some of my close friends... are you guys planning to add more of these? Please say yes!!!
They truly forgot a desert eagle firering gun.
Night vision googles would be great !
I'll buy at least three of these if Gerber sells them again. I can't be the only one on my Zombie Death Squad with this kit. I agree with the flashlight addition, that would make it almost 99% inclusive. What would be 100%? Crossbow.
"A FLASHLIGHT would be nice"
"more branding on the thing"
These are stupid complaints for what is clearly a great product.
Just got mine delivered!! So awesome... I should have ordered 2! 1 to use and 1 to keep all bundled up and new haha.
I do feel kind of dumb though, trying to figure out how to fold this bag up, the right way... and so far I'm losing
But yea 4 star only because it could use more Walking Dead / Limited Edition branding, but oh well.
The thing is awesome but if anything I think that you should make the case a separate product, it would be really helpful.
Needs more firearms. For the zombies.
You have the option to buy each item. I did that, now sell the case!
PLEASE BRING THIS BACK
Dear Gerber, please reinstate this product as it is of upmost importance, for I am surrounded by zombies in LA. If you do not restock this product, I will be forced to kill the zombies with plastic knives, spoons, and forks. Please for the LOVE OF GOD RESTOCK THESE.
I love you,
Can we still get the canvas carrier?
Will the whole set be available again? Can I pre-order a kit?
Love it!! But.... Where's the sharpening stone that Andrea uses?
please bring this back i want one like now!
This just came in, definitely wish there was more branding on the thing. And that area that has the logo printed was a pocket. All in all… I'm excited to get into nature (ie. Hack stuff)
you guys forgot something important in this kit! A FLASHLIGHT would be nice!
OH MY GODDD! I need this!
Please re release the kit, or make the rolls available aswell, how else can I transport my tools of death and destruction after the apocolypse?
Got mine today ....love the look, obviously haven't used it yet:)
Had a very cool extra gift in the box that I don't see listed and not sure I should spoil it.
I do wish it had some type of Walking Dead branding to make it more collectible.
If you make it, I will buy it.
this thing is sick......
Oh please start selling this kit again. When my neighbors become nightmarish flesh eating zoms, I'd like to take them out as humanely as possible ;).
Please make this a continuing item. Priced out these items come to almost 400$ and that's without the convenient carrying case. I would really like to own this set. Not only because I love the show, but as an avid weaponry collector.
Please release this set again. Call it something else if you have to so it can merge with your normal product line. More blades!!!!!
This is a pretty good kit, so why limit the production amounts? I like that it has a carrying case too. Please offer again. (it doesn't have to be the limited "apocalypse" kit...call it something else if you like)
Definitely want one of these kits!!! please make more i am sure they will fly off the shelves as fast as the first run.
or at least make more rolls so I can make the complete set on my own :)
Oh dear,....How many zombie-nuts!!! Good marketing Gerber!
You must not make this a limited release, but include this in your regular line up of products. Do it, before your competition does and in this economy, if this is what it takes to make a purchase - like me - make it available.
MAKE MORE! If I fare poorly beacause of coming too late to a limited edition sale, I will make it my mission to shoot you with my crossbow. Happy Holidays.
Come on Gerber... only 200... you can do better than that! If you make it people will buy!
This set is fantastic! The knives are durable and work fantastically for anal stimulation. In addition to cutting vegetables super hard core, the bag is an acceptable brace for when you accidentally cut the tip of your finger off and have to drive to the hospital with one hand! I'm buying one for everyone I know.
As soon as I saw this kit I had to have it! This a bad ass set tools! Can hardly wait till mine is delivered
This needs to be brought back on the market. I think it's an awesome idea to have. I would buy it in a second
Bring it back, what good are all the toys without the toybox?
Just got mine today, I am very happy with it, even included the first season of the Walking Dead on DVD, nice little surprise. The set folds up into a nice easy to carry set, only thing missing is a shoulder strap. The quality of the tools is what I expected from Gerber, now I am just waiting for a few Zombies to try it out on!
I just got my Kit last night and it also comes with the Season 1 of The Walking Dead which is not listed above. The canvas bag is a little harder than I thought it would be to roll up but it's a very unique and well designed bag. The tools included are all pretty cool and even though I won't be using them for their real purposes, they do make a nice collectors item!
Not a bad start. I keep a BOB in my car, machete in my trunk but it is 2 handed and a kukri blade, this gives me more power and reach (what is needed when killing something). PLEASE make one Gerber! show me a kit with that, the suspension (also in my car), keep the lmf (with seat belt cutter), use the saw II, keep the ax, E tool, good light that's under $100. Then you will have an off road kit that you can sell as a TRUE APOCALYPSE KIT. But make it either strap to MOLE or go in a BOB. Then you might have something practical too, because lets face it..... your not killing zombies..... but you still might have to kill.
Just received the kit and can say WOW, i really like this kit, think the knives are well made. The kit even came with the 1st season of The Walking Dead !!
Now whether we have the Apocalypse all the movies depict leaves much to the imagination..however I do believe that we will see a super virus again that could threaten every living thing on earth.
You've got to bring this one back for the holidays! I know I would love the pack for the tools themselves and the Walking Dead reference as a guilty pleasure.
Just found this and it would be a perfect xmas gift for my husband, is this truly not available anymore? Or is this just out of stock? Please let me asap, would love to order this kit.
I really wanted to give this as a gift. Are they really all gone? Can you get them anywhere else??
I want one, make more pls
Limited Edition? I better see this back in stock as soon as possible. Most here are willing to get this bad boy...
This kit might not include water tablets, or a space blanket. Though I'd feel much more confident with this kit tossed on the passenger seat of my apocalypse escape vehicle.
Zombies, hell, this kit is a virtual weapons factory. Think of all the cool weapons and traps you can create with this kit. Don't know about you but I think I'll buy me a few.
this is an awesome idea!
although i dont see the possible reason to have three different machete type tools, each one looks pretty bad. the only improvement i can thing of is instead of what looks like a guitar case; fit all this in a pack of some sort that can be easily carried
Zombies are symbolic depiction of hungry and greedy people who once were like us, somewhat rational beings, but one day their food and comfort was taken away from them. This caused them to act irrationally and violently. This pack may work for certain problems, but isn't really what I would use. of course this all depends on your location. Cities are going to be very extreme with the most population and least amount of food. Good luck fellow zombie-watchers!
This is why i buy gerber because they are simply the best there is. But no matter what your looking for they have it and if they dont they soon will awsome product .
No Crossbow... only 3 stars
dude obviously you need a backpack, u serious? and what fanny packs have you seen that look like that. Get a clue Mastadon't.
BTW get this in stock!
OMG You absolutley cannot limit the production of this kit. MASS PRODUCE and you will not regret it. Must chop off zombie nuggets NOW!
Looks almost like a baby kit something that a baby would use or buy. Why dont they just include some gerber baby food with that baby kit?
From what i see on the walking dead, they are awesome to kill zombies with silent. Gun will be too loud for zombies to hear and possible track you down. you dont want that to happen. just smash their heads into flat like a jello
Missing too much. Everyone needs a backpack survival kit not a fanny pack kit.
P.S. Don't forget the glass break next time.
Love walking dead and loved that I saw this in the show.
I own a guns and ammo and explosives shop, most of my customers would love to get their hands on this, not because its practical or because they really believe zombies are a possibility. Although they come in and talk about it happening all the time.
They would get it just because its fun.
Now, for some situations, these may be nice. But taking a close look shows how useless they really are. Serrations are horribly, they will simply make it harder to retrieve your knife from a dead Zed's head. The Parang Machete may be the best out of the group. For their practical uses, they may be among the best. But as an improvised Melee weapon, I'll stick with my Cold Steel Kurki Machete.
I like it. How about offering chow (MRE's) by the case?
As for Andy, who's going to run out of ammo? The knives are a back-up plan.
This kit is a must for anyone looking to kill some zombies, Vampires, or any other walking dead out there. The case is made of durable canvas and reinforced stiching for those long hikes. Who knows how long you might be on the run until your next rest area. The blades are all made out of forged steel, which can make quick work of most undead.
You two have no imagination. It is marketing hype. Roll with it and have some fun. Tell us which tool you'd use to do what to which zombie.
Nice marketing promo, but gerber didnt really do their homework on zombies. These blades are too short to be effective against zombies, the machete might come in handy, but you have to get in close and get to the BRAINS! A nice little collection but not even up to world war z standards.
This set of weapons/tools may not be the greatest against the living dead, but it's still a great set of tools for a weekend of camping or long-distance hikes.
Now, if only it had a fire-starter, water filtration system, compass, whistle, and a combat lifesaver pack...
I am not sure that the zombie scourge portrayed in the Walking Dead is all that problematic. I mean seriously... how did these slow moving necrotic beings take over the world? The military should have been able to just roll right over them. They have no intelligence and limited mobility. Now if they were the Running Dead like in 28 days... we would be talking about a whole different crop of carrots and these Gerber treats would be even more useless than they already are.
Kind of a catch 22. If you are considering buying this let me assure you that you have nothing to worry about. Because you have to have BRAINS for zombies to attack you.
i don't think that short knifes will do much good.
rather have KATANA or GUN.
but giving a 5 star for just having idea for survival tool kit.
Everyone knows that the only way to kill a zombie is to shoot them in the head.
blades are definitely better than guns guns run outta ammo if you cant use a blade than your outta luck
The thing about knives is it means you have to attack at really close proximity-- so this is good for defense if all else fails, and the zombies are on you, but you have a handy variety of deadly weapons attached at the hip. We do need guns though, and explosives, to prevent zombies from getting too close. Also with the knives there should be a mask or goggles, in case the zombie pathogen spreads through blood or mucus.
Too many people wanting guns. What happens when you run out of ammo, huh?
Throw in a Springfield XDm9 and this thing is golden!
I seriously WANT this! Just to prove to all you bad ass boyz that girlz can kick arse too!
Because Armageddon is any more likely than the zombie apocalypse. ROFL. Seriously gives me the giggles that people think we should take their myths anymore seriously than sci-fi.
seems to be missing a sharpening stone/tool.
Cool blades, but in a real apocalypse I'd also want water purification tablets, matches, first aid kit, MREs, and a space blanket.
This Apocalypse Kit is sweet for those "end of the world" types but it would be nice if there were a few silver tipped stakes thrown in there too, for those of us who have work to do right now.
how I wish I could use in my day to day life, facing those regular zombies in my life.
charging into office, screaming,"ALL OF YOU DIE", sounds like my idea of survival in our corporate zombieland!
You people are ALL Insane.
What? No guns? No pepper spray? I thought when zombies attack you have to aim for head? Then you cut it off with a sharp knife. ;-)
Machete, Machete Pro, and the Parang seem redundant. It all comes to 391 parted out so I guess if you were looking to get all of them anyway then this would be a decent deal.
This would be great if it had was cased in a utility belt for easier access. Guns aside, a long-handled shovel will work wonders for you (blunt weapons are excellent versus the undead) if you can't fork out the $349 for this set of bad boys.
This is an awesome tool kit for survival. Zombies or not, it is a definite possibility that something drastic will happen where you will need some tools like this. You should also stock up on guns, ammo, food and water.
Gerber has always made top knotch knives. It's really not a bad price for a limited edition set of edged tools. It does need a holster to put a handgun in though.
You can buy all the items individualy for much cheeper.
If you just buy all this stuff off amazon you save over $100.... the only thing you dont get is the carrying bag.
Zombie Apocalypse, is not a literal term... its a metaphor for the end of civilization when the sheep cant get to their mocha latte's Starbucks garbage and turn on each other...
i'd like some guns in this, please.
Seriously zombies are scary yet just sci-fi... In all reality it is good to have supplies like these in any apocolyptic emergency... Like when Armogedon happens and those left behind could really use these to survive. Point is regardless of what you are afraid of or what you believe in... It would literally be a lifesaver to have these at your side.
So much cynicism from davie and friends. Sorry your life isn't awesome. Great company and quality with a cool pack. If you don't like it then start your own damn company or make your own.. jesus
A zombie is a dead person who comes back to life.
I was worried because I did not have anything to defend my self with against the hordes, but lucky for me Gerber has come out with this little number. Even more lucky for me is that Gerber's factory is literally across the freeway from where I live It's a 5 min walk or 3 min run. I know where I'm going to barricading my self in. Also If your thinking about robbing my home I don't have any guns, but I do have a 18" gator machete. You'll be wishing I'd shot you.
I would love to put these in our Disaster Packs! www.prepareustoday.com
I like it very for KilLLLING zombies. Veve
If its featured on TWD, it must be good.
Well I have to say, for a joke gift, this would be quite the christmas present but seeing how a zombie apocolypse isn't in this weeks weather forecast, I'm gonna have to say this is a waste of money...
I'll give them some creativity points though
I want this... so bad...My wife would kill me. Ugg...
great start to the arsenal , still missing are the crossbow , arrows , metal tips , and snares, and of course something to deliver constant and rapid bulletfire across the crowdsof the undead ...
These tools are an absolute must-have for the Zombie Apocalypse. However, I recommend against using them on any walkers... The virus is in the blood -- like rabies -- which infects you with the bite. The blood splatter from these tools will, likely, expose you to the virus even without a bite. Not everyone can have a HazMat-3 suit while hacking away at Zombies... Stick with the crossbow for the kill, and saved these for the mop-up operation!
Are you serious, Zombies. To many horror films for these people.
Not enough options. Check out the AT-TAC-307 "zombie slayer" tactical longsword from Valiant Armoury, the Apokatana, Spit, Deuce and D'Capitan from Zombietools.net, the tactical katana and wakizashi from Hanwei Forge, the Trench-Hawk and Rifleman's Hawk from Cold Steel, for starters. More reach, high quality steel, and very, very effective.
These will get you laid.
I wouldn't suggest using such short blades as zombie defense. If it us bloodborn, you don't want to be that close when you cut one open.
I just bought a kit of these for my 10 years old little daughter as she is too young to use firearms.
EVERY blade is serrated.. which for most daily usage in a survival situation is useless. I would like to see at least 2 of the knives have no serrations.
I just want this whole collection and that's the end of it. I'll be able to meet anything that comes my way head on. Heck, the cops won't let me own a gun anymore, so I'll just wack my way through....Ha!!!!!!!
You don't wanna use guns they make too much noise and attract other walkers. Duh.
add a collapsible baton to the mix and maybe u've got a deal
As have already purchased all these items seperatly over a course of time this kit is lacking in other depts. it coud benifit from ike water and fire even a small skills book. But just being knives the selection is perfect
Every car should have one
Thanks for not shipping to Europe...
Been in Zombie slaying all my life. Can truly tell you: All that you need besides this kit, is a couple of clean panties !
I always thought, why bring a knife to a gun fight... Until I got these sharp beauties. Before, when I would go out to bars or talk to kids at playgrounds I would never get any respect.
These fun new playthings have changed my life. Now, whether it is going through the metal detectors at school or just getting stopped for a routine traffic stop, people take notice. I thought it was my genuine Star Wars Luke Skywalker jacket I bought on Amazon -- but it always comes down to the hardware. I cannot tell you how many times a girl has come up to me in a bar and asked if I was going to slay zombies or if there was a set of Gerber knives in my pocket!
Where's the duct tape? How am I supposed to survive anything without duct tape?
Post-Apocalypse? I don't think so. This is the Be Like Dexter Starter Kit.
Well, besides this kit what you really need is a good compound Hunting Bow.
Silent, ammunition could be retrieved and you can make your own ammunition if needed.
Think about it (pro zombie hunter advice)
Include a zippo, a flashlight, a flare gun and smoke grenades. :D
Talk about lucky...clicked back on the site just for the heck of it, low and behold its available again! Nice set to go along with my katana!
Thanks Gerber, was supposed to be a limited edition... There goes the exclusivity. At least put batch 1 or something on the original orders.
but why not include a gerber survival kit? I mean.. you make them... you make fire starters... just seems like 3 knives and no fire starter seems gimmicky. I want to survive the horde...
Please, bring these back in stock before its too late... I can hear them scratching through the walls!
Don't get wrong, this is nice to have, but I would prefer some thing that could take care of problems from a greater distance.
This kit is bar non a family necessity for the holidays! Grandma gets out'a line chop a watermelon in front of her with the gator machete and show that old bat who means business! She sure as hell wont open her mouth about the dry turkey again! Nephew dumps juice on your cream colored carpet you take that Epic and cut the stain right out, that will show that jackass who's the real four year old! Overall I'm ordering this my family needs it and so does yours be prepared for sub-par relatives this season!
I see this as being a handy everyday commuting tool as well as an essential for the end of days or a Friday night out in my local club... (there's some beasties out there!)
Personally I would have liked to see something more sizeable... perhaps swapping out the camp axe with something with a little more reach and heft...
Come back with that and you've got 5 stars!
overall it should also be modded to were if your in a team one guy can carry the tool bag like a back pack then carying it for easyer mobility and treking to keep hands free while climbing or grabbing onto teammebers when sfaeing up needs to be done ie roofs walls log bridegs you get my drift and I WANT THIS FREAKBAGS ITS TIME TO DIE again :D
Even I found the Gerber Apocalypse Kit a real blessing!
You can get ALL these tools for $304 on THIS site, and for as little as $250 elsewhere. So at a Minimum, you are gonna pay $50 for the case. Sorry, it's nice, but ruins the deal.
This will come in handy if I am ever set upon by zombies while enjoying a chocolate chip cookie in the shower.
Needs to come with an umbrella. Think of all the blood splatter these weapons will cause. Oh whats that? You have a small scrape on your hand? Wait what? A drop of blood got in your eye? Congratulations, youre now a zombie.
It needs to have a Utility belt for quick and easy access to all the toys along with room for my 45 Magnum.
With the Gator Machete in one hand and the Gator Machete Pro in the other I just scream, "ZOMBIES....COME AT ME!!"
Don't try this at home.
After trying many brand-name razors I'd heard you could shave with a Gerber, so I got this for myself at first. Sadly, my stubble took the edge off most of the blades apart from the excellent axe, which has a great balance in the hand and is perfect for trimming the beard.
I gave the rest of the kit to the kids to bring out their creative side. It's great to see them do so much more than arm-to-paw combat with the local wildlife.
If I didn't have the Gerber Apocalypse kit, I would of never been able to feel the exhilaration of saving my family and mutilating zombies with a Gerber Gator Machete in each hand. GOD BLESS AMERICA.
Watch out Shane. I was dead but now I`m back! And I`m coming after you!
the lights went out at 2:23 on the dot while I was at the office. The Apocalypse had begun. Luckily I had my Apocalype gear from Gerber. I instantly drew my axe and sword from the poncho and began swinging at whatever moved. As I was sprinting down the stairway shaft I remembered I grabbed my pocket knife. I took it out and threw it blindly down the shaft in case any of those damn zombies where coming up. Whew!!! Thank god for that. Because I heard a scream after I threw it. Those damn zombies almost got me again. Thank you Gerber.
Shane... we need to have a long, long talk...
Where is the counter? Are there really only going to be 200 released??
Why would you ever want to buy these? I love you, now let me eat your brains.
Could have used this when I was in Willamette
We had to make a run into town, it was just me and Otis. But we wen't in, we needed that damn medicine so Carl could make it. We barely escaped out of the school alive, and they were closing in on us. So I did the only thing I could...I pulled my pistol out and shot his legs out from underneath him and ran back to the truck.
Had I remembered to bring along the Apocalypse Kit from Gerber, we could have easily hacked our way through a hundred or more zombies and both made it back alive.
This is most likely the best thing I've ever seen - I need money now.
Any self-respecting zombie is going to look at a Bear Grylls knife and just start laughing....
All it is knives, machetes and a hatchet....you are gonna need alot more than those if the dead start walking
Great idea. However, I would include some firepower because I don't have any intention of getting that close to the undead in order to use a knife or hatchet.
That's a lot of weight to be carrying around. In a real survival situation all you need is a hatchet or a Bowie knife. And a can opener.
I see hatchet in the set, but where's the Bowie knife and can opener. Lame.
This looks like a great kit, but is overpriced; all 7 tools can be purchased on Amazon for $259.16 as of November 22, 2011. $90 for the canvas carrying case is a bit expensive. And that's not even including the tax and shipping that Gerber will probably charge you ($28.36 for AZ).
Where's the fire starter?
Two ways to think about this... one wait for the fella who buys this and live in regret in 1 year and ebays it or wait for the apocalypse to occur and take one of these off of one of the fallen who never had a chance to use it :)
The best marketing ever. Hornady did an excellent job with a video. Keep it up. I already have the LMFII knife so I guess I will have to buy the rest individually
Carl: "It's an ARSENAL!"
I would order one but i think i would have some explaining to do at customs...
Ok, so where's the Dexter Morgan kit?
I've heard nothing but awesomeness about Gerber~ Wish I had enough money to make this my first Gerber purchase. Truly brilliant marketing and a great package!
What, no sharpening stones?
Needs a multitool, shovel, flint
Googled these on Amazon and all rated five stars.
Granted, pricier than buying individually, but the cool factor wins!
What about a good multi tool?? You can use it to setup zombie booby traps.. ;-)
This kit is so cool
Anyone who is a fan of the Walking Dead or just awesome looking weapons/"tools" will buy this in a heartbeat, especially since all of these purchased separately would be over 400$... Definitely looking forward to playing with these bad boys.
Great marketing idea from a company who's known for super blade products.
I was going to put together a separate setup just like this and now I don't have to. You bet I ordered one. Great work!
It's AWESOME must get ideal for camping
Only 200?! Come-on!
Hands down... one of the best special cameos of the year, backed by one hall of a marketing left hook. You guys are on it!!!!
counting my pennies and nickles right now!
What a huge waste of money. You can get far better equipment I bet half that breaks within a week of hard use. A Bear Grylls knife hahahahahahahaha
It is an extraordinary marketing idea actually. Having a product on a awesome tv show is actually a great idea.
Great tools and great tool-case integration.
Brilliant assembly. Brilliant marketing. You'll sell through the 200 kits in no time. Only thing I'd add is an adjustable strap so that you can carry it slung over your back as you crawl over the remains of those who did not invest in a kit of their own.
On Amazon all of these together cost around $270.
Great Marketing idea...just ordered mine!
Fantastic tools, fantastic marketing, stupid below comment
you can by this stuff individually for alot less
great tools stupid marketing idea
Yes it is a typo. It will ship this year. 2011
It says "Ships Dec 5, 2012" is that a typo?
Or does it ship Dec 5, 2011?
The name pretty much says it all. The Gerber Apocalypse Kit includes everything you need to keep yourself alive should a zombie outbreak occur — and that means machetes, axes, knives, and more knives. Pretty much anything with a blade on it, all packed into a durable canvas case. Be safe. Be prepared.

How many of you reading this have contingency plans prepared for the zombie apocalypse? Be honest. Even before The Walking Dead (one of the few reasons we’ll actually get out of bed on Sunday), Romero gave us plenty of good things to think about. Are they walking zombies or running zombies? Where’s the nearest source of gasoline? Do you go urban for the skyscraper height advantage or will that just ultimately screw you because of the increase in meatsacks? One thing is for sure though, all your fancy guns will eventually run out of ammunition. Bladed weapons are the way to go and this Gerber Apocalypse Kit is exactly what you need. There’s a parang, two machetes, an axe and plenty of folding, sharp, pointy knives to amuse you for hours… or kill zombies.
The zombie apocalypse is coming, and you can't take your katana everywhere. Well, you can, but that's a pain. Much better is Gerber's new Apocalypse Kit, which has all the cutty slashy stuff you'll need to make it through the zombie plague.
Like Edward Scissorhands set loose in a cutlery shop, the Gerber Apocalypse Survival Kit ($349) delivers a bevy of bladed goodness. Consisting of seven tools, including Machete, Camp Axe II, Machete Pro, Parang (our favorite), LMF II Infantry, DMF Folder and Epic, the Apocalypse Survival Kit makes the guy holding his Swiss Army Knife look like Steve Urkel at a deadlift contest. From dicing your survival rations to whacking baddies in apocalyptic hell, the Kit will prepare you for just about anything. It comes wrapped in a tough reinforced nylon case with built-in handle, so if the hordes are teeming you’ll be on the move.
Since bladed and pointy objects have always been cool things to have, outdoor gear purveyors Gerber did the smart thing and put a bunch of sharp knives in a single container. The resulting product is the Apocalypse Kit, a set of dangerous tools (includes a hatchet) for emergency situations.
Men, we are gathered here today to ensure that we are prepared for the next zombie attack. Behold the 7-piece Gerber Apocalypse Kit complete with an axe, a couple machetes, and several small knives that will help in the resistance of the walking dead.
I figured that’s how an apocalypse meeting would begin, but who wants to wait around for that time to come. Instead gear up and be prepared for the unexpected because you never know what’s around the corner. Enclosed in a super durable canvas carrying case with reinforced stitching, the kit is compact and packable. To beat the uprising we must work together. We must arm ourselves and organize.
The Walking Dead has become so popular that it was only a matter of time that we see gear from the TV series that can be bought – and presumably used – in real life.
Gerber Gear has released an Apocalypse Kit, which is actually the gear that is used in the TV show.
While the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention would have you ready for the zombie apocalypse with plenty of food, water and first aid, Gerber Legendary Blades would also like to see you armed.
These weapons have indeed gotten quite a bit of play so far. Who can forget when Rick and Daryl hacked those church zombies to pieces with the machete and hatchet? Or how about just last week, when Glenn used a rather nasty-looking hooked blade to dispatch the Pez-dispenser zombie in the pharmacy?
When society breaks down, it'll be every man for himself alone in the wilds fighting for food and survival. Whether it's Zombieland, a nuclear holocaust, the 2012 presidential elections, or another day when you might need to fillet small mammals to survive, be prepared with Gerber's Apocalypse Kit. This handy canvas carrying roll-style case, featured on The Walking Dead, sheathes seven of Gerber's most bad-ass knives: the Gator Machete, Camp Axe II, Bear Grylls Survival Series Parang, Gator Machete Pro, LMF II Infantry knife, DMF folding knife and the Epic fixed blade knife. Pack your own matches if you want to cook your catch. Soldiers, get pro-deal pricing on Gerber's website.
With Halloween quickly approaching who doesn’t love thinking of goblins, ghouls and zombies? AMC’s The Walking Dead deals with a time when the zombie apocalypse has come to happen. This show has been highly successful for them and I’m sure many of you have watched it. Have you noticed all of the cool gear in the show?
Well here we are—2012. End of the world time. Sucks, doesn’t it? We’re not sure how we’re going out, but we’re putting our money on zombies. Yup, zombies. (It’s an outside bet.) While the world panics and runs around like chickens with their heads cut off, we’ll sit back, sip some whiskey and relax knowing we’re prepared with all this gear.
Gerber has even teamed up with the hit TV show Walking Dead to produce their sold-out Apocalypse Kit. The kit's canvas roll bag contains two styles of Gator Machete, a Camp Axe, Parang (the #1 selling product on Gerber's website), and three styles of knives.
Having the right tools for the job! When surviving in a world where the living dead are potentially at every corner, you must be prepared with a weapon for protection. In season 2 of The Walking Dead, Glenn was able to find a machete and other useful knives in an abandoned car. This machete is made by Gerber and you can actually purchase said machete, along with other hand held weapons. Yes, it’s nice to have a rifle for long range shooting or maybe even a 7.62 mm minigun to mow down a horde of roamers. But you will eventually run out of bullets. So make sure you keep your knives and machetes handy for close encounters. Protect your group with your very own Gerber Apocalypse Kit.
In a brilliant marketing move, Gerber Gear has repurposed a series of its bushwhacking and survival tools as necessities for the improbable (inevitable?) zombie apocalypse. If you have an ancient stone Mayan calendar in your living room, you know what I’m talking about.
Need a gift for that special someone who worries the dead will soon walk the earth? Gerber Legendary Blades, a 72-year-old company that specializes in outdoor, tactical and industrial gear, offers a $349 Zombie Apocalypse Survival Kit, a weaponry sampler that includes an assortment of knives, axes and machetes in a convenient travel pack.
When the beginning of the end is near, and zombies come for your brain, will you be prepared? If you pick up one of these Apocalypse Kits, you’re well on your way. Featured on The Walking Dead, the Gerber Apocalypse Survival Kit is a set of seven of its signature razor-edged tools (weapons, in the case of a zombie on your tail), all wrapped up in a convenient canvas carryall, and ready to be deployed at the first signs of the breakdown of society (or on a camping trip, either way).
What better way to say “I love you, dad” than prepping him for the coming George Romero-esque “end times” hellscape when the dead will rise from their graves. Sure, on the surface, this kit may seem like just a collection of badass sharp objects—including two different machetes, an axe, and a long knife known as a parang. But, in reality, it’s an acknowledgment of all the adolescent fantasies shared between a father and a son, almost like the adult equivalent of that BB gun he once gave you way back when. And it’s awesome. Just don’t tell your mother.
