Gerber EAB Pocket Knife

If the primary use of your tactical knives seems to be cutting open boxes, then perhaps Gerber’s EAB is better suited to your needs. Not that the EAB is limited to such tasks: this Exchange-A-Blade pocket knife uses ubiquitous 1.7-inch double-sided utility blades, easily flipped (and eventually replaced) when the blade grows dull. It also weighs in at a lightweight 2.2 ounces, boasts a pocket clip that can also be used to hold your cash, and a locking mechanism that secures the blade in its open position without worrying that it might close on its own. It also doubles as a solid component of your everyday carry abroad: just ditch the blade before flying, and grab a replacement at your destination.
