GDC Zip Blade
Gerber knows being prepared isn’t a state of being so much as a philosophy. Which is why having the right tool on hand is about little things that make the difference. Sometimes the job’s as simple as cutting twine or slicing open a box, but try those things without a blade enough times and you’ll appreciate the compact efficiency of the GDC Zip Blade.
Part of Gerber’s Daily Carry collection, this Zip Blade is the bulldog of utility knives. Squat enough to fit in the palm of your hand, it has enough muscle to strip wire, cut cardboard, and slice through toughest of clamshell packaging.
The quick-release clip lets you remove this tool with one hand, leaving your other one free to steady a load or keep things aligned. When open, a frame lock keeps the compact .68-inch fine edge blade secure, so there’s no wobble when you’re powering through a cut. A built-in fob lets you attach it to the zipper of your jacket or bag, so it’s close at hand when you need it.

Purchased this along with the zip light, and at first was wondering if it had a locking mechanism or not, but after a few minutes loosening it up, it has the typical locking system. The blade is surprisingly thick for what I expected, so it will stand up to a lot of wear and tear. The blade came sharp, and I love the steel construction -less plastic parts to bend or break in cold or harsh conditions-. I also love the size and colors, as it makes it very easy to zip/unzip something with a pair of the biggest gloves, but the product isn't too big that it looks awkward. Overall 5/5 rating and I would recommend another great product from Gerber. Happy trails.
Attached it to my EDC keychain. Great for opening plastics. There's no way this should be a problem with knife laws, no matter what state you're in. Its not even an inch long. Gets the small, everyday tasks down.
I keep one of these on my dog tags at all times. I cant say how often I use it. Also tough enough for most things
Can you get all of them together for a package deal?
The blade wouldn't close after the first time I tried it. Too cheap to even bother sending back. Very disappointing especially given the Gerber reputation. I guess the price should have been a tip off.
Just bought 4 of these, Back pack, Coat, key chain and rifle sling. and the blades are more capable than I thought. Handy, and I find I am using them all the time.
MAKE MORE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you were to make this with a non locking blade, this would more than likely be NYC legal and also TSA legal. Just an opinion.
