There’s something to be said of a beautiful pocket knife. Perhaps one with a rippling Damascus steel blade or a wedge of turquoise inlaid into its handle. Then again, maybe that sort of knife speaks for itself, and it’s the ones that make no show of themselves that need an extra word. Take the utility knife, for example – it’s built for the least glamorous jobs, like scraping away dirt or rust and opening box after box (after box).
Utility knives are workhorses, and most aren’t flashy in any way. Gerber, however, did an excellent job of making its folding EAB sleek, minimal and entirely practical with a pocket clip and a construction that makes swapping out old blades a snap (no sharpening necessary). Even better, you can pick one up for just $7 at Amazon right now, thanks to a 53 percent discount.
