Gerber knows being prepared isnít 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 jobís as simple as cutting twine or slicing open a box, but try those things without a blade enough times and youíll appreciate the compact efficiency of the GDC Zip Blade. Part of Gerberís 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 thereís no wobble when youíre powering through a cut. A built-in fob lets you attach it to the zipper of your jacket or bag, so itís close at hand when you need it.
