Gerber Legendary Blades is recalling its cohort folding knife after learning that the locking mechanism may fail to hold the blade in place, posing a laceration risk to users, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reported on May 26.
The recalled products have model numbers located beneath the UPC barcode on the packaging. Product codes ending in letters “F” and “E” are affected by the recall, which can be seen on the blade underneath the thumb press. About 150,000 defective cohort folding knives were sold at Cabela’s, Home Depot, Bass Pro Shops, and other outlets nationwide between January 2013 and March 2015. To date, six reports of laceration have been linked to the issue, two of which required stitches.
