Just in case you’ve not heard of the Gerber EAB (Exchange-a-Blade) over the several years it’s been out, it’s a must have utility knife that belongs in every house. It’s slim and lightweight with a great lock up. It’s pretty much perfect for anything you’d use a utility knife for, you can get it for about $12, and it’s an easily carried pocketknife.
It has a tip-up pocket clip that doubles as a money clip. At a mere 2 ounces and with a closed length of about 3”, this folding utility knife is small and light-weight enough to comfortably carry in your pocket.
It comes with a K5 contractor grade high carbon utility blade. Once the included blade gets dull, it’s easy to change it with either a standard or contractor grade utility blade. The utility blade locks in the open position with a liner lock.
