Wheres there a recall because of malfunction/reliablity issues?
Was it just discontinued?
Anybody have one?

any light shed on this would be appreciated.

From what I've read on Bladeforums it was deemed a POS before anyone even held one in their hand. AFAIk that opinion was never challenged.

I suspect that the Kick Axe was a personal injury/liability attorney's wet dream come true, and that's why it was canceled.

I probably shouldn't buy an axe or hatchet on looks alone, but I'd be tempted... :supergrin:

Yeah, I would bet it was a liability. If your going to be swingin an axe it might as well be a fixed handle. Although I think the concept is nice and handy I'd rather have a fixed handle. With that said I really like the quality of Gerber Knives (http://gerberknivesoutlet.com) made in the United States. Of there was a problem with this product then it could have damaged the reputation. Safety always comes first.

It would have to be really sturdy in order for it to be more convenient than a fixed handle axe.
