More than 1 million folding knives recalled for posing ‘laceration hazard’

Harbor Freight Tools is recalling about 1.1 million Gordon Folding Knives due to a laceration hazard.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the locking mechanism can fail to engage on extension of the blade, posing a laceration hazard.

This recall involves Gordon brand folding knives. The knife is stainless steel with black metal on the handle and five cutouts on each side of the handle. The knife measures about 3-inches. The knife also has a silver-colored metal belt clip attached to the back of the handle. “China” is printed on one side and “Stainless Steel” is printed on the other side of the knife blade.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled knives and return them to a Harbor Freight Tools store for a full refund in the form of a $5 store gift card plus sales tax.

Harbor Freight Tools has received seven reports of the knife failing to lock, resulting in six reports of laceration injuries, including four that required medical attention.

The knifes were sold at Harbor Freight Tools stores nationwide, by telephone, and online at harborfreight.com from July 2008 through July 2019 for about $5.00.

Consumers can contact Harbor Freight Tools at 1-800-444-3353 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, email at recall@harborfreight.com or online at harborfreight.com and click on “Recall Safety Information” on the bottom of the homepage for more information.
