The Gordon folding knife, sold exclusively at Harbor Freight, has been recalled after reports of injuries due to a failing locking mechanism.

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. 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.

The defective knife, pictured above, is stainless steel with black metal on the handle and five cutouts on each side of the handle. It's about 3-inches long with 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.

The knives were sold at Harbor Freight Tools stores nationwide from July 2008 through July 2019.
