Nice tight belt/pocket clip too.

Also, the open lock was a little weird to get used to closing the blade, but again, got used to it.

This is a perfect size for carrying in your pocket.

I purchased the Gerber EAB lite about 6 months ago and I purchased the previous model ( Gerber 22-41830 EAB Pocket Knife ) about 3 months ago.

After carefully examining each, I have to side with the pervious model of the EAB.

First, I will start with the clip. On the lite, the clip has been streamlined and scaled down. This results in a weak feeling clip. It is marketed as a money clip, but on the lite I do not feel comfortable having any more than a few bills in the clip area. On the previous version, the clip is about twice the size of the lite's clip and is significantly more sturdy.

Next, is looks. For this category I have to split the decision. The lite model looks more like a compact pocket knife when closed and is rounded when fully opened which better contours to your hand. The original, however, is more disguised and can pass as a money clip with its rectangular shape when closed. When open, the knife is more straight than the lite and does not contour as much, but I feel that it is negligible.

Finally, I have to mention the dimensions. For the lite, I have had a very tough time finding a blade that will fit into its compact design. When comparing the lite and original model, the lite is fractions of an inch shorter than the original. Typically, this would not mean anything, but it is very important to note. If you are not careful, when using a store bought utility blade on the lite, the tip of the blade sticks out of the design ever so slightly when closed. This may be due to poor searching at the hardware stores around town, but when the tip of a razor blade is sticking out of the knife it can be dangerous.

Clip broke on the first day after no use of knife, just from being clipped to pocket while knife was on inside. I don't think this is a manufacturing flaw, but a design flaw. The clip is thin and narrow while the folded knife is relatively wide. The wide knife causes stress on the fold in the clip under very casual use when the knife is carried as described.

Overall a good knife, a clever concept, and great value. I recommend saving clip for use as a money clip only or maybe while using for external carry if you don't expect to brush against anything. Yours will likely break if carried in a pocket while clipped.

I'm debating living without the clip, doing an RMA, or just asking for a replacement clip or 3 from the manufacturer.

UPDATE: Gerber sent me 2 replacement clips when I informed them about my issue. It was easy to install.

I use this knife every day at work, cutting and shaving drywall, opening boxes, cutting rope ect. It holds the blade really securely and its easy enough to change the blade, even though its not a quick release setup. Folded it is barely bigger than the blade it holds but when you use it it feels great in your hand, with good control and grip. The one little problem i have with it is that if the blade you replace the standard Gerber one with is a tiny bit bigger (like the Stanleys I use) the tip will stick out just a hair past the end of the knife when its folded. its not enough to really cut you but sometimes it will catch on something and open in my pocket or clipped onto me. Just use gerber blades or try other ones to see if they fit, and it shouldn't be an issue. other than that I love it, and it is a great alternative to the Superknife because it is much more compact without compromising much utility.

This is a great EDC "knife". I bought this knife for routine tasks I didn't want to expose my "good" knife to.

For a knife this small, it feels quite good and sturdy in the hand, much better than your father's utility knife. It is much thinner than your standard utility knife (though no less sturdy). This is a big plus and allows you to carry it in your pocket. The Gerber construction is first rate with first rate materials (stainless steel). You can hear the mechanism solidly lock on opening. There is absolutely no play (either side to side or up and down) once the blade is extended.

A liner lock keeps the blade in place until you are ready to fold it back down again. There is a nice finger guard that covers about 1/3 of the utility blade preventing any accidents.

The clip in the back is actually welded onto the knife (not a separate piece that is screwed on). I suppose this means it might snap off some day, but I doubt it. The clip is nice,tight, and extends all the way to the edge of the knife. Even if it does snap off, the weld is on the inside portion of the body, hidden from view.

The knife takes standard sized utility blades. By carrying a small pack of blades, your knife never goes dull! You can use both sides of the blade before discarding it. Changing the blade will require a slotted screwdriver, but this means the blade is truly securely fastened (pins will loosen over time). I will probably use Lennox blades, but Irwin is fine as well.

You can't beat this knife and the price makes it even better! I'm happy I made this purchase.
