New York, NY — A laceration hazard has prompted the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPS) and Gerber Legendary Blades to voluntarily recall Gerber® Uppercut™ Fixed Blade Knife and Sheath sets. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on August 6, 2013.

The Gerber® Uppercut™ Knife and Sheath sets were recalled after discovering that the Uppercut sheath doesn’t hold the knife securely, which allows the knife to separate from the sheath and poses a laceration risk.

“All Uppercut Knife and Sheath sets include a black nylon sheath with an engraved Gerber sword and shield logo printed on the front and ‘GERBER’ engraved on the snap clip on the back. The sheaths are approximately 2.25-inches long and 1.25-inches wide at the top, tapering down to 0.5-inch at the base. The knife sold with the sheath is a T-handled knife with an overall length of 4-inches and a 2-inch double-edged blade that snaps into the molded sheath. The knife has a laser marked white sword and shield logo on the front and a white alphanumeric code on the back tang of the knife. The Uppercut sets that were sold in a box have model number 30-000650 printed on the box. Sets sold in blister pack packaging have model number 31-001727 printed on the packaging,” the CPSC reported.

Consumers are advised to contact Gerber Legendary Blades for instructions to exchange your sheath for a free replacement.
