I don't like busy pockets, and I don't have time to sharpen a knife. I carry a Gerber Razor knife because it fits in my watch pocket and I just change the blade every 7-20 days.

Gerber EAB Pocket Knife [22-41830]

Cannot possibly recommend this enough. Much nicer than the bulkier knives I used to carry, and it isn't showing much age after being in my pocket for a year.

Edit: $12.95.

I bought the gerber utility knife because everything else was too thick.

u/Eloquinn · 4 pointsr/homestead

I used to help my grandfather do this all the time when I was a kid. We castrated them when they were very young - about the size of a large cat. He always had a little, old-fashioned 2-blade folder that he carried everywhere and he'd spend half an hour sharpening it when it was time to do the castrating.

I'd hold the pig by the back legs and he'd slice them, remove the testicles, cut the cord and then swab them with iodine and let them go. There wasn't much blood at all... The scariest part was always the sows angrily squealing and looking for a way to get in and tear us apart...

If I were to do this today I'd probably use a utility knife with a fresh blade in it. No worries about sharpness and you can toss the blade when you're done. Check out the Gerber EAB. It's my every day carry and would probably work great for this.

I don't remember ever having to castrate a large pig. I do remember that he used bands to castrate the cows. Basically it was just a heavy duty rubber band that would cut off blood flow until the testicles just fell off. It sounds gruesome but it never seemed to cause them any distress and we never had issues with infection. I'm not sure if this would work on pigs but you could probably google it.

Take Amazon's money. Jesus fuck I overpaid for this at an Ace Hardware.

u/HeartofAce · 3 pointsr/EDC
u/chewychubacca · 3 pointsr/EDC

Wallet $15 - big skinny

knife $10 - Gerber EAB

keychain $7.50 freekey

suspension clip $5 - tec p7 ripoff

Light - I don't have a good one for this yet. Can someone recommend a small AAA light with a power button (vs twist)? I have a twist one and it kept getting turned on in my pocket.

u/gritsgear · 3 pointsr/EDC

I have the regular EAB,

The design is ultra simplistic and really attractive. I am a trim carpenter so I don't usually wear a tool belt, (I can't have tools accidentally hitting cabinets) so this knife always rides in the little pocket of my jeans without ever being felt. If I need to do excessive cutting then I will bring a larger knife but for the smaller random tasks having a knife on you all the time is necessary and this does that perfectly. Holds the blades tight with a screw and is surprisingly not bad to open one handed. It's nearly perfectly flat and looks like a luggage tag. If the practicality isn't enough for you I challenge you to find a more attractive utility knife.

u/pyrowopr · 2 pointsr/EDC

First off, many of these things are intentionally cheap, because I do tend to break and/or lose things, so... Here goes.
All have Amazon links, because that was what was easiest.


u/kamspy · 2 pointsr/knifeclub

Gerber makes a little folding utility razor holder thingy. It's like $8.

Very rarely when someone asks you for a knife are they actually planning on cutting something. It's usually prying or turning a flat head screw.

It's like at work when someone asks me for a flathead screw driver and they're holding a hammer, I just give them my little screwdriver sized pry bar.

u/McWatt · 2 pointsr/knives

Maybe a Leatherman Micra or a Swiss Army Knife. Or maybe this thing from Gerber.

u/Teamster · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I use one of these. Super lightweight, small, and uses replaceable blades. It's hardly the best looking knife out there, and I'm considering getting an Opinel, but the EAB is a simple, decent looking, highly effective utility knife. Certain perks to using a utility knife over a "normal" knife: easy to clean, cheap to replace blades, small profile.

u/xmaxdamage · 2 pointsr/italy usa le lame dei raschietti e lo porto sempre nella tasca dei jeans, non occupa praticamente spazio. prima giravo con un serramanico ma mi sono reso conto che finivo per non usarlo mai perché spesso serve per fare cose che potrebbero rovinare la lama (non ho sbatti di mettermi a fare l'arrotino).

il victorinox è comodo per molte cose ma è più ingombrante e in caso di aggressione è una delle cose meno utili di cui disporre.

u/Dman222123222 · 2 pointsr/EDC

You might be interested in something like the Gerber EAB or Gerber EAB Lite for that utility blade. Both are pretty nice. Ironically, the EAB is lighter than the EAB Lite.

u/cesarsucio · 2 pointsr/EDC

Gerber EAB is the way to go.

u/MadmanWithAHat · 2 pointsr/EDC

Is this the one you want?

To chyba tak nie działa. Towary z ograniczoną dystrybucją po prostu nie będą możliwe do zamówienia pod Twój adres. Na przykładzie Amazonu: rzeczy takie jak amerykańskie czasopisma, książki na rynek amerykański i inne przedmioty po prostu nie będą dostępne dla wybranego adresu docelowego, gdyż ich dystrybucja na terenie danego kraju nie jest prowadzona. I tyle.

Gerber Pocket Knife - Exchange A Blade

With Titanium edge blades

I already have this, so I wont ask for any gifting.

It's small/thin, has a strong clip. You can replace the blades very cheaply, or get expensive ones like I posted (Irwin 50 pack for 12.69 Prime is a cheaper higher quantity option)

u/murderbymodem · 2 pointsr/NJGuns

Personally, I avoid carrying a "knife". I always have a Gerber EAB with me. Since it uses replaceable utility blades, it'd be very hard for them to say it isn't appropriate for work. As a bonus you can actually use it to cut cardboard and tape without dulling and getting an expensive knife all nasty.

u/Ey3rose · 1 pointr/EDC

I Work as a Purchaser/reciever and open boxes and envelopes all day and I LOVE my Gerber It takes disposable blades that the office buys so its always sharp. It looks good, compact, and its cheep so if someone nicks it I wont be too upset.

Gerber EAB Pocket Knife— My freinds keep making fun of me because I keep asking them if they've seen my new knife. "Yes. I've seen it three times. It's great. Shut up."

I just think it's so purdy.

u/myusernameisunique02 · 1 pointr/Tools

Haha I was actually looking at one of those 90 degree angle attachments, but figured I don't really need it yet. Will wait until it goes on clearance.

That makes sense about the bit holders though. Same thing, will wait to find some on sale since I don't need them urgently.

I came across this set of titanium bits on sale, but it only goes to 1/4. /u/blbd mentioned that this is probably the most cost effective option since it doesn't have the pricier bits, but it means if I ever need more bits, I would need a new case; this is why I was going to wait until this one goes on sale, but might be a silly endeavour.

Is this the knife you use currently? Only downside I've seen is someone people say it gets uncomfortable to hold - looks good otherwise.

u/The_Bratheist · 1 pointr/AskReddit

This little guy. Much more solid than the "quick-change" variety of blades, yet I can still change the blade in under a minute.

Half of the blade stays guarded, so when it gets dull, you flip it around and you have a new razor sharp edge to last until you get a chance to replace the blade. Snapped off the tip prying something? Flip it around, brand new blade. I love this little thing.

u/Ashtonmore · 1 pointr/knives

Right, I am not going to argue with a free knife. One of two knives I have now too since all my other ones have gotten lost or stolen. The other being a Gerber box knife that I have had for over five years. Old quote in the camera world, the best camera is the camera you have on you. Same could be said about knives I guess.

u/Scrivnerian · 1 pointr/EDC

Been meaning to pick up one of these Gerber cutters. I work in an office, seems like a good EDC carry for dress slack pockets, can anyone offer thoughts?

u/xtremepado · 1 pointr/knives

The cheapest knife worth carrying that I can think of is the Gerber EAB.

It takes standard utility blades, so it is easy to have a razor sharp blade at all times. It is extremely light and thin, and you will hardly notice it in your pocket. Plus the clip doubles as a very useful money clip.

I believe they sell them at Walmart. I have many expensive knives and this is one that I use very often.

u/hovva91 · 1 pointr/knives

I found this one which looks promising!

Gerber EAB Pocket Knife [22-41830]

u/maxpowerAU · 1 pointr/knives

Start with a box cutter, like a Milwaukee Fastback or a Gerber EAB.

Give it a few months of being able to open packages and trim paper into folding dolls for your niece. Don't mention safety or self protection or anything like that at all. Then let your folks see you cutting up your lunch apple with your box cutter.. food prep is where a box cutter is kinda gross and you can pitch for an Opinel or something.

u/DiegoRC9 · 1 pointr/EDC

I actually just replaced mine with a Gerber E.A.B utility knife. They're affordable, small, fit anywhere, and obviously have replaceable blades. I absolutely love it.

u/suihcta · 1 pointr/EDC

In rough order, starting from the upper left corner:

u/WarSport223 · 1 pointr/VEDC


I feel some sort of a utility-blade knife is great for fine / small / delicate work, and pair it with a nice medium - large, solid fixed blade knife is a good idea.

This is a ridiculously nice knife for the price:

SOG Tactical Knife with Sheath - “Field Knife” Fixed Blade Knives FK1001-CP 4” Fixed Blade Knife with Full Tang Sharp Knife Blade + Survival Knife Grip

Also I’ve found that Schrade knives seem to provide an exceptionally good value. I bought this one for my bag when it was closer to I think $22/23.00....can’t beat that! Honestly I’m prob going to start collecting them. They’re super inexpensive yet pretty good quality / pretty well rated.

As much as I truly love and used to only go for the best, most expensive stuff, I’d rather have several less expensive knives stashed around instead of one super expensive one that I’m afraid to use, lose, break.

Schrade by BTI Tools SCHF36CP Frontier, 5" High Carbon Steel Blade, Full Tang, Clam

I did some research (of course....all my suggestions here are very well researched) and for the price, the 2 knives above are very good values. Don’t get me wrong; I love super high-quality, expensive things - especially knives - but;

  • I have around 20-ish knives and literally the only knife I ever use is my Gerger EAB utility knife and I only use it to open packages. :-|

  • As these are dedicated for car kits, there’s a chance they’ll get lost or stolen so I certainly don’t want a $200+ knife to play that role.

    Gerber EAB Pocket Knife [22-41830]

    These things are ridiculously small and useful. Great for EDC or VEDC. Been carrying one for years & use it all the time. Get the one I linked, NOT the fancy-looking new “upgraded” model - it is a POS. I bought 2-3 and the clip broke off on EACH of them almost immediately. It is also much larger than the original EAB.

    OR you can get something like this because you have spare blades + larger handle / better grip.

    Folding Utility Knife, Heavy Duty, Triple Ground Blades Stay Sharp, Pocket Clip Klein Tools 44131

    Also a crowbar of some sort so that you aren’t tempted to use any of your knives as a crowbar.

So what's the problem? Don't tell me that you don't carry a pocketknife? I always have this one:

u/AnacondaPython · 1 pointr/EDC

I modified my setup a bit, to accodomodate feedback from other people and to see what works best for me

Somebody suggest to use this knife:

Here's my new setup:


Any dynomighty wallet, just pick a design

Car keys (whatever your carkeys are). If you want a USB stick added on to your keys, use a Micro-HDMI for low profile and convenience


Iphone6, Samsung S6, etc etc. Whatever floats your boat

Pick a small battery charger, search for it on amazon:

Get a retractable cable for your charger if you need too (low profile)

JEAN COIN POCKET (on front right pocket)

That gerber fold up knife

RIGHT MOST JEAN STRAP ( was the front right before)


duck tape

Tape planet had the cheapest prices at $1.54 each


Measuring tape. This one has the lowest profile so it doesn't hurt to sit on, 10' is good enough for almost everything


Get sticky notes, I suggest highland brand 3"x3" since it works for nearly everything you might need sticky notes. I suggest getting both, alternate colors by day

Plain yellow:


Also, get a sharpie too. Fine points are good

Alternatively or ultra fine


that's my current setup

u/midnight_nyc · 1 pointr/techtheatre

I use this tiny Gerber money clip knife. I put in a fresh blade every week so my knife is always sharp. I use strait blades but it also accepts other styles of blades. My test for a sharp knife is being able to have a friend hold a sheet of gel in front of them and being able to slice it cleanly (this is more of a film thing than a theatre thing).

u/browsit · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

It is great for storing credit cards. I don't use it for money; I use this:

u/Bangs42 · 1 pointr/EDC
u/random_account_538 · 1 pointr/MLPLounge

I don't have a fancy knife. Just a plain old Gerber EAB.

I like that I don't have to ever worry about sharpening it. Mostly because I'm not very good at sharpening knives.

I do carry [one of these]( "The 3.3" .45acp version") though.

u/bungsana · 1 pointr/EDC

carry gerber EAB. i use it to open mail, boxes at work, and packages. i also use the flat edge as a bottle opener.
