The other day, my friend Bill showed me the Gerber EAB Pocket Knife (item # 5544) . It is a utility knife that uses a replaceable razor blade. I think he bought his for about $10 at one of the mart stores around Christmas. I was impressed by the slim design of the knife, and its utilitarian function. I am always looking for something like this around the shop. We receive a lot of packages every week and if you use your carry knife, you will soon find it dull from the cardboard and tape. The problem is, I can’t stand to carry a full size utility knife because they are so bulky and clunky. We have small utility knives that we keep in our shop aprons, but they don’t have the same size blade as the larger ones, making them a little more fragile. This seems like the perfect medium between the two. Check it out at
