The Gerber EAB – A Perfect Tool for Your EDC — 5 Comments

  1. I have the original version of this knife and use mine as a money clip. I like it for air travel because I can carry it into an airport, ditch the blade before security, use it as a money clip while on the flight and replace the blade when I get my checked bag. I have done this many times post-9/11, just put it in my BDU organizer and toss it in the tub with all my other stuff, but have to admit I have not done so with the recent “enhanced” security measures.

  2. Very cool…my dad has the Husky and he paid over $10 for it. I just bought 4 of these for $39.70 to the door.

    Thanks Jack…great stocking stuffers.

  3. I carry a knife very similar to that:

    As you mentioned, it is very useful to have a disposable edge for fine work so that you can save your normal pocket knife for things that need the full blade. I’ve found having an EDC utility knife has resulted in having an EDC pocket knife that actually stays sharp.

  4. I used to have one very much like this and a customer swiped it from my counter when I wasn’t looking. It was there, and then it wasn’t. I looked it up on the security cam and she just reached over and hoisted it when my back was turned.
