Master Cutlery recalls knife because of faulty sheath

Email to a Friend

July 10, 2014—Master Cutlery recalled its MTech USA Karambit Neck Knife and Sheath, because the sheath doesn’t hold the knife securely, which allows the knife to fall unexpectedly out of the sheath. This poses a risk of laceration to the consumer.

The half-moon-shape knife is 7 inches long and was sold in a camouflage-print pattern. “MTech USA” is laser printed on the blade. Model number MT664UCSO is printed on the back of the knife. The knife fits into an unmarked molded black sheath that’s 4.5 inches long. The sheath has a snap clip on the back and comes with a beaded lanyard chain. Replacement sheaths have “MTech USA” laser printed on the back.

The knife was sold at Big 5 Sporting Goods stores from March 2014 through May 2014. No injuries were reported. Consumers should stop using the recalled knife and sheath, store the knife and sheath in a safe area and contact Master Cutlery for instructions on how to obtain a free replacement sheath.
