In this season’s Walking Dead, an AMC show that depicts an apocalyptic world over run by zombies, the survivors happen upon an arsenal of tools neatly encased in one of those chef like canvas wraps, that for all intent and purposes are a bag. It turns out that it was one giant marketing ploy to sell Gerber tools, but no matter, because you can now actually buy the set and feel like you’re ready to save the world from hordes of flesh eating “walkers.”
Included in the package are 7 tools: Gator Machete, Camp Axe II, Gator Machete Pro, Parang, LMF II Infantry, DMF Folder and Epic. And just in case you’re wondering, those latter tools are in fact a variety of knives – we thought you’d like to know since the names are rather obscure. The “wrap” is made from a durable canvas, includes a handle and stud buttons to keep things tightly rolled up. Looks pretty legit to us, even if it was product placement at its best (or do we mean worst).
The Walking Dead Gerber Apocalypse Kit will ship December 5th, but you can preorder it now for $349. Not a bad deal when you consider the price of each tool.
