Product Description

"No one doubts keys’ usefulness--they start cars, get you in and out of places and keep your stuff, well, yours. But to really elevate their role, the Gerber Daily Carry Hook Knife adds lifesaving potential, in the form of a reliable, easy-to-access blade that’s always in arm’s reach. A True Utility Blade: The idea behind this 2-inch stainless steel hook blade is simple: create an ultra-stealthy knife that lives on a keychain and can be used to quickly cut yourself out of a piece of clothing, seatbelt or other safety strap, should you ever get stuck in a tight spot. You’ll also find lots of ways to use the knife for many of life’s little non-emergencies. At home, put it to use opening a box or an envelope. Out in the field it’s great for small tasks like cutting fishing line, trimming a tarp or opening a package of freeze-dried food. A Safe Grip: Wrap your finger around the ring, press your thumb against the thumb grip and you’ve got a solid hold that won’t budge when you put a bit of power behind a cut. When you’re done, the blade snaps back into its sturdy, safe sheath."

Nice little tool, picked up two for my key chains.
Stan Glomb
There are no indications on the small box it came in or on the product itself as to where it was manufactured.
Sam J
This hook knife is very good for cutting string, blister cards, seatbelts, etc.

The GDC Hook Knife is what it is, and nothing more. Gerber says that we'll be amazed at all the uses we find for this product, but I'm curious what those may be, as even opening a package with the GDC Hook Knife is a frustrating experience (details below).

I just received mine, and-- without spending much time with it-- I can already tell what the tragic flaw of the product is to hinder it from any possibility of it being a multi-use tool/knife. Basically, the nub that sticks out over where the blade is is quite thick (as thick as the rest of the product), and doesn't have sloped edges . That keeps it from slipping easily between layers of cardboard to cut through tape on a package, or anything else for that matter.

(see my uploaded images to better understand this product, and see the thickness of it)

As an example, I just tried to open another Amazon package with it and it was very frustrating. I had to first lift the cardboard a little just to stick the thick hook knife between to cut the tape. It would have been faster using any one of the keys on my keyring as opposed to the GDC Hook Knife.

The fix for this is so simple it's stupid. I honestly cannot believe that this product made it to market without it:

Grind down, or at least smooth the edges of the "nub" to make it easy to slip under/between things.

If some real thought had been put into this product beyond design (which I must comment on-- it's a great looking tool, despite its problems), that nub might even be a sharpened edge. It goes into a hard and secure plastic sheath when you're not using it... So why not have it be a useful multi-tool?

I'll start with my background, then describe the product, and list it's flaws lastly.

I am a rope rigger. I tie people and things up on a regular basis. I use everything many varying types and sizes, so I always, ALWAYS have an emergency cutting tool on me in the unlikely event I ever have to cut someone/something free. In addition to this, I am an avid climber and hiker. A reliable rescue tool is always on me there too. To be honest, I always have one wherever I go.

That being said, I have about 25 different models of hook/rescue knives. I generally don't like it being attached to my knife as I'm picky about my knives. This is honestly my favorite pick for multiple reasons. I like the grip, the ring circumference is not too small to choke my finger nor too big that it's awkward to hold. The sheath grabs well enough that it won't fall off, but not so hard that I worry it wont come off immediately upon my needing it.

Analysis: I test every hook I get on multiple ropes, wires and cables prior to carrying it. This tool has absolutely no problem getting through hemp, jute, bamboo, and most synthetic ropes of 10-11mm and smaller. With a small twist/wiggle, it can get through up to 18mm (I only tested hemp at this size) in a little over a second. This blade also has NO problem going through a seat belt. I also tested this on 8mm Kevlar tubing with great success. Lastly, I tested it on 1/8" galvanized steel cable. This proved difficult, but after about 10 seconds of strenuous effort (with 50lb tension) I was able to cut the cable. The hook was no longer sharp, but nice to know it could be used for that in an emergency.

Pros: Very compact, yet fits hand nicely.

people complained about it being stuck on tape, this isnt made for cutting tape, its a rescue hook. I used it camping to cut paracord and zip ties. went right through. tried it on the box that it came in sailed right through. any tool will fail if you use it for something it isnt intended on doing. take care of them and they will take care of you. clean it if you do use it for tape and youll be fine

I liked this little tool as it cut very well for me and I found it quite easy to use. However, it came out of the sheath several times because the sheath is made out of plastic and loosened up its grip on the tool. Ultimately, the hooked knife came out of the sheath and I lost it. It's a cool idea but the sheath was not thought out well.

I wanted to like it...... I lost it the first day after I attached the loop to my key chain and the cutter dislodged and fell off. Why put a carry ring on it if it won't hold it firmly.

Great price. Good shipping. Fits nice on key ring. Little odd to cut with. Hard to to start. Does not like cardboard very much.

This Item is relatively useless. It is not sharp It is difficult to put it in a position that is useful. It is cute but generally other than that I can take it or leave it.

I think the idea behind this product makes a lot of sense, it would be really convent to have a seat belt cutter right on your keys should you need it in an accident, or to use just for opening boxes or simple cutting tasks to avoid dulling your pocket knife. But that being said because the only thing hooked to your keychain is the sheath, and the retention is awful the chances are you will probably be bending over to pick up the hook several times the first day you have it like I did and then promptly throwing just the hook into your tool box on the off chance it will ever be used again. It seems like gerber over thought the sheath, had they simply used molded kydex it would have had excellent retention and would then have been a very useful tool but instead they tried to use a piece of plastic cut into the sheath itself which went limp in a day like an old man on a viagra sample. Overall I wouldn't waste your money on this item, chances are if you were in an accident the airbag would keep you from reaching your keys and if you needed to use it to cut anything else it would have already fallen off since the retention sucks so bad.
