Harbor Freight recalls 1.1 million pocket knives


Harbor Freight Tools is recalling about 1.1 million pocket knives due to a laceration hazard.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission reports the recall is for Gordon brand folding knives sold by Harbor Freight Tools. The silver colored, 3-inch knife’s locking mechanism can fail to engage on extension of the blade, posing a laceration hazard.

Consumers are advised to stop using the knife immediately and to return it to a Harbor Freight Tools store for a full refund in the form of a $5 store gift card plus tax.

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