Gerber GDC Zipper Pull Knife Review

Gerber GDC Zipper Pull Blade
Gerber GDC Zipper Pull Blade

The Gerber GDC Zip Blade gives you all the tool you need in a convenient, go anywhere package.  Sometimes, you just need a small blade to make a quick, utility cut.  Maybe you need to cut a string, or cut a piece of cardboard, or maybe you are just out on the job and you need to strip a wire real quick.  What do you do?  If you have the Gerber GDC zipper pull knife, you just detach the squat, utilitarian blade and make your cut.  Then you simply replace the zipper pull on your jacket or carry bag and you are good to go.

Just how good is this little knife?  Be prepared to be pleasantly surprised.  The .67″ blade gives you enough cutting edge to cut nearly everything you run into in an office or even out and about.  The blade opens with a nail nick.  There is a small ball bearing in the framelock that allows the blade to open much more smoothly than you might expect.   It locks up with a frame lock.  The lock engages extremely well and keeps the blade from having any front to back movement.  There is no side to side movement at all.

The blade closes into an open frame body of 3Cr13 stainless steel with the classic Gerber grey finish that gives it a slightly tactical feel.  The blade pivot is an oversized black bolt with a rim of bright lime green.  Extending from the top of the handle body is a small strap that connects to the zipper pull.  The entire thing can be detached from the actual zipper attachment. The construction is good quality and the blade is hefty enough to get some serious cuts taken care of when the need arises.

This ingenious little blade lets you always be prepared.  And it looks stylish as well.  Get your Gerber GDC zipper pull blade here on our website.
