Harbor Freight has launched a new Gordon 12pc emergency survival kit that they’re selling for $24.99.
The “quality tools, lowest prices” retailer says that “this all-in-one survival kit includes all of the essentials for any emergency.”
In my opinion, the most interesting part is this 7-in-1 survival spork, with built-in bottle opener and knife edge built into the handle. Don’t worry, the sharp edge is covered by a plastic whistle.
Oh – I wouldn’t use this spork, I just found it interesting. Don’t lose that whistle!!
Here’s a list of everything the Harbor Freight Gordon kit comes with:
- Stainless steel folding survival knife with locking blade and strap cutter
- 7-in-1 multi-use spork with built in whistle on cover
- Rugged LED flashlight with adjustable focus
- Wire saw
- Saber card
- Emergency blanket
- Survival bracelet
- Water bottle clip
- Fishing tools include fishing line, lure, and hook
- Fire starter and pocket bellow for starting fires under difficult conditions
- Tactical pen with glass breaker
- Water-resistant storage case included
Harbor Freight advertises that this compares to the VEITORLD B07V6X6MG6, which is $34 at Amazon before 50% coupon. The two kits look to be nearly identical, with the “Veitorld” kit selling for $16.99 at the time of this posting.

Not to mince words, this all looks very cheap to me, with tools that seem functional but could fall apart the first time you try to use them.
However, how much would it cost for someone to put together a higher quality kit?
Enthusiasts might know what to look for, but whatever everyone else?
I can see the value in a kit like this, but I can’t help but doubt its quality.
Personally, I wouldn’t buy the Harbor Freight set or the “compare to” set that’s lower priced on Amazon.
What do you think? Is this a good value or a pile of junk? Can you recommend something better?
