Hammering or chopping with the axe without first removing the knife from the axe handle can create a force upon impact which may cause the knife to come out of the handle and stick upright, and on the next down stroke the knife can pose a laceration hazard to the user.

If you have a knife-in-handle Combo Axe, always remove the knife from the axe handle before using the axe, and call Gerber to receive your free Handle Cap, instructions for installing the Handle Cap, and a warning sticker. Once installed, the Handle Cap will keep the knife securely in the axe handle during transport and storage. Call Gerber toll free at:
