DENIED: Wish-Lust: Gerber Kick Axe

One of my readers brought to my attention a folding axe, purported to be a Gerber product on another blog, and it seemed right up my alley so I went on over and looked it up. Fun blog, I seem some cool parallels in our coverage and interests (well done you Undead Gear guys!)

I wanted to get my hands on this cool piece of kit, but checking Gerber's website I hadn't been able to find it, and the link included in that article defaults to the Gerber Gear homepage. SO I contacted their sales reps:

I asked if they had any publicity or product information on the Kick Axe, telling them I would be delighted to hear more about this product, it looks ideal for me, my blog and my readers.

Here's the reply....


Thank you for contacting Gerber Blades and your interest in the Kick Axe.  The Kick Axe was announced for release in 2009 and due to a number of concerns was not released.  Production of this product has been cancelled indefinitely.

We appreciate your interest in our products and invite you to view our website at to see our current product offerings.
We apologize for any inconvenience.

So, a sad outcome, but it goes to show, always good to get good up-to-date intel, and for the best, go to the source!

    1. Count me in! I was hoping one of my maker friends would step up to the plate!

  2. Hi, I know this is an old post but I to have been searching for a Gerber Kick axe and have been in contact with Gerber and as a result of this they have said there might be a newer version of the Kick axe being released now that they know there is a high interest for it.

    1. sounds good! let me know if they get back to you with firm details!
