Gerber 22-41830 EAB Pocket Knife with Exchange-a-Blade

When one side of the blade gets dull, just turn the blade over. When both sides are dull, simply replace the blade. View larger.
Durable Stainless Steel Construction for Long Life
Made from durable stainless steel, the Gerber E.A.B. Pocket Knife will stand up to daily use as a box cutter, pocket knife, or as the back-up knife you keep in your backpack, purse, or car.

Replaceable Blade Keeps Knife Sharp
With its handy exchange-a-blade feature, the Gerber E.A.B. Pocket Knife will always be sharp. Because it uses contractor grade or standard size utility blades, you can cheaply and conveniently change blades as often as you need. You won't have to worry about ruining the blade when you cut through tough surfaces--just replace it and keep working.

When one side of the blade gets dull, you can still use the other side by turning the blade over. When both sides are dull, simply unscrew the stabilizing screw and replace the blade.

Lightweight Knife Stores Comfortably in Pocket
At only 2.2 ounces and 2.4 inches in length when closed, the Gerber E.A.B. Pocket Knife stores easily and comfortably in your pants or shirt front pocket, keeping the knife nearby for frequent tasks. A convenient pocket clip doubles as a money clip and allows the knife to rest on the edge of the pocket, increasing accessibility.

Safety Features for Worry-Free Use
Liner lock construction locks the blade solidly in the open position, so you can apply pressure without worrying about the knife closing on its own. A finger guard over the blade keeps your fingers safe, and the shape and heft of the knife keep it from wobbling or slipping.

The Gerber E.A,B, also makes a great monogrammed gift, with its flat handle and slim profile.

About Gerber: A History of Innovation
Savvy. Moxie. Craftsmanship. Attention to detail. These are just a few of the company traits that have contributed to Gerber's emergence as a world leader in outdoor gear. Joseph Gerber started Portland, Oregon's Gerber Advertising back in 1910, and one Christmas, he hired a local knife-maker to craft 25 sets of kitchen cutlery as client gifts. The knives were so popular Mr. Gerber ultimately left his agency to launch Gerber Legendary Blades in 1939.

It makes sense, really. An idea man gets the idea of a lifetime and turns it into a major outdoor brand--one that commands respect among knife lovers and knife makers alike. And now that same high regard is spreading in new directions, in the form of many outstanding products such as tools, personal L.E.D. lighting, and more.

I carry this knife with me everywhere I go. I originally purchased it as a knife to carry at work, but it's always in my pocket and I use it multiple times a day. Even when the blade gets dull it still works great as a box knife. I've thrown just about everything at it and it's performed nicely. One of the lowest scoring reviews here states that the blades are hard to replace and the screw is easy to lose. As long as you have an ample flat surface you can replace the blade without fear of losing the screw. As for needing a special tool--I disagree. I've used my car keys before to replace the blade. The things I like most about this knife? The blades can always be replaced or resharpened without fear of screwing up the blade. You always have a backup blade because of the two-sided design of the blades. It's small enough to fit in any pocket. It will never rust (the body). I never thought I would carry a razor knife as my main, but it's true, I really enjoy this knife and wouldn't trade it for anything else. Unsafe? Any knife is unsafe in the wrong hands. Razor blade knives are very sharp and require extra care when in use. I've never accidentally cut myself with the knife. The only negative is you can't use it as a makeshift screwdriver because the blades are too flimsy, but that's a minor quibble. This knife is cheap, convenient and will last a lifetime. I highly recommend it.

Really love this little knife and was carrying it everyday for two weeks when one of the pivot washers failed. They are white nylon and the one on the liner lock side became squished out of alignment. ( The liner lock now actually pushes the soft washer out of the way, maybe due to squishing and enlarging of the washer?) This has caused the blade holder to become off center when the knife is closed and is causing the blade holder to scrape against the liner with a gritty feeling. Gerber Customer Service is sending me a pre-paid mailer for a warranty return (which is not the norm. They want you to pay to ship it to them and they will pay return shipping. I didn't want to pay $5 to ship something that cost me $10).

So I ordered a second EAB off Amazon with free shipping and no tax(!) and just got it today- however the new knife has an improperly ground cam on the closed position, so the blade does not have a solid bias toward closing (as in snapping shut). There is almost 1/4" free play in the closed position, allowing the blade to freely swing away from the handle. I'm afraid that would allow it to open in my pocket, so it is getting returned for warranty along with the first unit. The first unit has a nice positive closure. I just wish there was a tool available to disassemble the pivot so I could replace the nylon washers in the first knife with some phosphor bronze ones. I may just make one, but that would void the warranty. But I'm not too concerned about that as this is a ten dollar knife :) My old Super Knife came with a key-chain tool to adjust the pivot. Gerber should include one as well.

Another thing is the blade. It is VERY sharp, sharper than some of the other brands of utility razor blades and quite thick. I really like it.

I haven't carried a pocket knife in about ten years. I use to carry a Leatherman at all times, but mainly used it for the pocketknife. Well, September 11th happened and I didn't want to lose my knife after forgetting to take it out of my pocket before heading to the airport. Forward to ten years later and a friend shows me this little gem... we spark up the conversation that I just mentioned and he notes that the blade is removable. So now I am not so worried about keeping this thing on me everywhere.. worst case scenario I take the blade out, trash it, keep the knife without a blade and replace it later. Nice!

This thing seems to be made really well. There is absolutely no free play in the blade, it stays where it belongs. It's small and light weight, fits great in the pocket or hanging on the pocket with the attached "money clip". The lock takes some getting use to, but it seems like a smart idea..

For the price you can't beat this knife.

I decided to purchase this knife as a replacement for the harbor freight model that i have carried for the last five or six years. The Gerber EAB is much smaller than any other folding utility knife that i have seen. I also have a craftsman a kobalt and another misc. brand of folding utility knives. The craftsman I carried for awhile after I misplaced my older harbor freight, but it was larger and heavier. I will attach a picture that shows this knife in comparison to an older HF. The gerber is well constructed and has a flawless surface finish. The blade is held in by a single flat head screw (which obviously requires a tool to change). The blade is held in place and has no free play or wobbling. This is a superior design to every other utility knife that I have ever used. I liked the craftsman, kobalt, and my old style HF because they have minimal free play. (they are not the push to release blade change - which i tried out with two other knives but returned because the blade moved too much), The only complaint I might have with this knife is the small size might make it harder to cut into stubborn items.

pros:
* Extremely well constructed
* Flawless finish on the stainless steel
* Absolutely no free play in the blade
* Small size
* Light weight
* The lock is seemingly impossible to accidentally release while cutting.

cons: (note that all of my cons are also pros)
* small size (this is a possible con - I haven't used the knife enough to see it as a down side)
* requires a screwdriver to change the blade (I carry and highly recommend the blunt nose mp600 by gerber. ) * edit - a penny can be also used
* the lock takes a little getting used to
