Slim, portable, and holding up to five credit cards in the clip, this tool also contains a discreet 1.75 inch fine edge blade. Easily stored in your pocket and simple to deploy, this tool is seamlessly integrated into any daily task.
Thanks to technology via phone apps that have replaced an array of credit and loyalty cards, fewer items wind up in wallets. This translates to money clips growing in popularity. Enter the Gerber GDC Money Clip. Not only does it hold up to five essential cards, but it contains a 1.75 inch fine edge stainless steel blade for discreet access and ultra-practical incorporation into the daily routine. It perfectly integrates high tech function with a need for basic, sturdy steel.
FORM AND FUNCTION
This sleek GDC Money Clip, capably housing its nimble blade within a 3.6- inch body, stows easily in a pocket. True to the always ready GDC lifestyle and built for the practical gentleman, the Money Clip is a Gerber innovation for modern day superheroes. Warning: this is a budget buster. The clever blend of quality, looks, and functionality warrants picking up the tab every time just to show it off.
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 money clip sheath.
Seeing some of the bad reviews, I personally think it's more user error, the instructions are pretty clear on its capacity. The knife is pretty sharp from the time I got it. It cuts pretty decently through cardboard and thick bubble wrap packages. I tried it on the package it came in, and it was very smooth.
I was curious about TSA and x ray machines in general but never wanted to risk it. So if I know there's security like that, I'll leave the knife portion in the car or in checked luggage, but keep the clip with me.
As far as I know about stuffing it to death. I do it all the time. I always have 5 cards with me so with just those it's easy to deploy the knife. However being a Bartender I have a ton of cash, so luckily it holds it (20 bills It doesn't go all the way up to the clip but close enough for me), but impossible to deploy the knife with it. So simple solution, I move everything in the clip half way down, then deploy the knife.
The clip is super sturdy. And recommend it. Has a great cool factor to it. As far as design goes, I like the ring to take out, but not to put my finger through while cutting. It has a groove for a finger underneath the blade for that reason.
Only reason I'm giving it one star is just to be able to leave a review.
1st. The blade isn't sharp and there's no real good way to even hold the blade.
2nd. There's no way you can release the blade if you put cards in the clip. Maybe its only made to hold cash.
3rd. Good thing I got it from Amazon and returning it won't be hard.
This is a real bad design and it makes me wonder if there was any QC/QA done before releasing it to the public.
Near pointless to use this, as the blade release button won't depress when there are cards in the clip. On my top 5 list of worst purchases.
Worked great for a few years. Then, I ran into the TSA. They tried to confiscate the entire clip. I removed the blade, handed it to them and thanked them for making me safer. Would like to purchase a replacement blade.
This is the first Gerber piece I've purchased, and I'll definitely buy from them again.
Small. Feels high-quality. Knife is easy to deploy (i.e., if you place it correctly in your pocket and practice, you could hand it to a thief while removing the knife relatively covertly if you so choose.) Easily fits 5 cards and more bills. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that you just put your bills under your cards under the clip so it's easy to put them all in. It's tight enough that it would rip bills if you just try to jam them in, but that gives it the strength to keep everything secure, too. Also, I have no problem pulling the knife out when it's full. If you do, you're putting too much into it, and will probably bend the metal quickly and make the clip useless soon anyway.
The composite edge of the clip had a few sharp points sticking out of the side. Easy to fix, though: Snap the knife out and cut them off.
The metal on mine is more of a golden-copper-green color than the neon shown in the pics here. I dig it though; much more my style. Also, to the people who want to carry this through TSA: If you don't want to have it taken, don't take it with you. Nothing against Gerber, but you can get this for about 1/3 the price on Amazon--and it's a tremendous deal.
This is more a question than an opinion:
Do you think this could go through customs immigration? Recently while travelling with a buddy, his Swiss Army, multi-purpose tool got confiscated while going through immigration at the airport. Was wondering if this will suffer the same fate?
I bought this for EDC.... I keep a few bills and 2 cards in it and it works.
Of course if you put more than that in it, knife won't deploy but it also said that in the description so I knew that when buying.
Great EDC clip and blade.
The opinions towards this product seem synonymous across the board in regards all money clip owners. However, once an improvement is made I will purchase another.
The wallet is still great and wish it wasn't out of stock as id like to purchase one.
I also faced the same problem, with the card holder. And while finding a solution to it, i tried hockey tape to it, though it took some time to get it fixed right and make it lean, but it solved the problem a big time. I had put the hockey tape under the clip, and also covered the inside of the clip, and it works fine, and also attached a compass to it, so, now it looks pretty cool.
This thing is solidly built, but cards scratch very easily. Also like others said, if it's too full the knife won't deploy.
It's lightweight, small, and the blade is rugged. Just wish the underside of the clip didn't scratch every piece of plastic it encounters.
So I have been using a Spyderco for awhile and recently lost it. Ordered this clip based looks and reviews. As for looks, great. Sharp, not too thick, the knife releases, but here is the issue ONLY if there are very few cards or not much cash. The clasp presses in to release and if the clip is "packed" its a no-go. Seven balls and four cards, its "ok". I added two slim business cards and the knife would not release. So over all if you are just looking to carry a few $20's and two cards your like it, beyond that, I'd look elsewhere.The knife is useless..
Have you guys thought of updating this design? The scratching clip and not releasing when there's too much in the clip...? These seem to be very important features that should function......
Let me know......
I love bear grylls I watch all his shows and now am a survivalist but a belt clip with a knife insed sounds like a good deal but im not sure please help me.
Combine this with belt tool into a bifold wallet. Don't over engineer it like you tend to do, Gerber. Bring some of the elements that make the Shard such a great tool into the belt tool. Use friction locks similar to your Ghost Strike series. I already carry the GDC hook knife in my coin pocket in my jeans so no need to try and add that.
This product is actually pretty cool and I do love it, but it has one major design flaw. Where the clip meets the back, it heavily scratches anything it comes it contact with. So all cash and cards or license will become very scratched and damaged after a few time inserting and removing a few times. If they redesigned it to provide some sort of simple material where the friction is so nothing is scratched, it would be work the near $40. Right now I wished I would have paid $10 with this flaw.
This has been my money clip/pocket knife for the past year. Other than being a little hard on the butt cheek, it works fairly well. I have found many uses for the knife and it saves me another item to carry. With too much stuff shoved in the clip the knife wont pull out, until you move the stuff an inch down. So it works great overall.
It would be helpful if your video showed how the credit cards fit and how the money clip part works. Sounds like an awesome product but I really would like to see a demonstration of all its functions before buying
I recently moved to eastern Europe and was looking for a way to carry my money. I wanted some sort of clip that would be comfortable in a front pocket(keeping in mind pickpockets). Having already bought several Gerber knives, I decided to try out the Gerber pocket clip. I am almost NEVER a day without it. It's very functional and great EDC tool to have.
I typically have my Gerber Venture in my other pocket so I don't really use the knife much. It is a little odd(in ergonomics and blade shape) but still a great addition and definitely a bonus.
It's pretty rugged and can take a good beating(as long as you don't bend the clip out). And shows few signs of wear.
The only two issues I found is that the knife can't be removed from the clip if it is full of money. Because it stops the retention button from being pressed in. I don't typically have a problem if it's only a few Lei though. The other is that the paint on the button and underside of the knife wears a little because of the rubbing when the knife is removed.
Overall, great item, totally recommend it. Way to go Gerber!
The screw heads on the clip side scrape the hell out of your cards. So now I have a bunch of scraped up credit cards and IDs.
if the clip breaks, does warranty covers it?..i could see that the clip is mostly made up of steel with less aluminum content..
I absolutely love the GDC money clip. It's by far one of my favorite tools Gerber has ever made. I purchased one for myself and my brother as soon as they came out and we absolutely love them. All the people who complain about it not opening/closing need to understand it's just a money clip. Money clips were designed to only carry the bare essentials. If you want to carry every card you own - then buy a wallet! The only issue I have with this product is I don't carry a lot of cash on me most days. Just my License and my debit card. When its only cards in there, they both get scratched. I had to order a new debit card because mine was so beat up. It's still an awesome product, but if you're going to carry it, make sure you've got cash to prevent your cards/ID's form getting torn up.
Some horrible design flaws went into this money clip. I was incredibly excited to receive mine and when I did, I was even more excited to start using it on an every day basis. I own around ten knives and decided that this would be a great added time to my collection that would have great use. BUT. Before putting any bills in the clip i noticed the first flaw, the safety release, when released scratched against the side of the blade, and then in turn the end of the blade itself. This would over time greatly damage the edge and all around use of the knife. Secondly as mentioned by someone else, I put my money into the clip, and went to take the knife out, and the release is compressed back by the bills creating now what was an every day carry knife that was small useful and discreet, to be just a money clip, completely rendering the knife useless. I had so much hope for this item but am now so very displeased with it. Maybe next time before releasing a new product you could give it a test run with a few of your guys first.
Bogus! Can't get the knife out with money in the clip! The money prevents the release button from being depressed
I would love this more than anything if the ring wasn't green! Why not a neutral color like silver or gray?!
If you put 5 cards in it, its basically impossible to get the blade out as its pressing on the back of the cards.
The blade lock on this was poorly designed. I put more than the 4 cards in it, and if i pull all my stuff out whatever is on the back gets horribly scratched/marred.
Great advertisement on it tho.
I would be more inclined to purchase this if it were a belt buckle. I have enough multi tools from Gerber that are EDC at work, but a nice fixed blade hidden in my belt would seal the deal.
Great idea, knife did not fit secure into the money clip, but in contact with Gerber now to correct this issue. It will be a great discrete carry when it gets all together....
Awesome Knife. You would think it comes in handy when you're getting mugged, you just pull out the money clip and you have yourself a decent self defense mechanism.
It's pretty much perfect, I love it. If you have four cards in it I find the knife can't come out if the cards are pushed all the way back. Just limit yourself to 3 cards.
The clip on mine cracked after just a week it's a shame because I love it and I love the knife part but I'm disappointed because the clip broke
This is the coolest product, and I want to sell them to my Public Safety and Law Enforcement customers. Can I become a dealer, or can I get special pricing, what are my options? I look forward to hearing back from you soon. Have a great day.
I bought this money clip 3 months ago.
I can't use it on daily basis because the knife if very hard to pull and even harder to put back.
There is no room for money (cash) it is very hard to carry more that $100 plus a credit card.
It is very annoying to have to take your money and cards out of the clip in order to pull the knife.
