Tool: Gerber EAB Lite Pocket Knife

Two things I really love about this thing: first, it’s really compact. It really easily fits into the coin pocket of your genes. It’s just something you can easily toss into your pants pocket. I guess that makes it qualify as one of those everyday carry sort of items.

The other thing I really like about this over other utility blade carriers is that, because the blade is held in with a lock screw, the entire thing just feels like a single solid piece. I mean obviously it’s not a solid piece, but there’s no wiggling or wobbling around. Normally the blade in utility blade carriers is just kind of held in place by a spring tension and if you move it around, it’ll still rattle. There’s no rattling in this so when you’re cutting. The blade’s not going to wander at all.
