Gerber GDC Zip Blade Review 2014/01/07
How many times do we need access to a sharp edge during our day
around town or in the office? The Gerber GDC Zip Blade is a tiny knife
which can be attached to a zipper on a jacket or rucksack and is right
there when you need it.
It’s great for opening boxes, packaging and similar tasks. It’s just a
little tiny blade so don’t expect to build a shelter with it!
The Gerber GDC Zip Blade has a small but tough blade which is held open
by a solid liner lock, so it’s good for making strong cuts. Nothing too
fancy with the cutting edge it’s a full flat ground bevel. The whole
construction is metal and feels very strong in the hand with your index
finger able to rest on the spine easily.
I found an issue with the quick release
buckle feeling a bit flimsy, which lets the rest of the knife down as it
may be easy to fall off. The lanyard can be replaced with something
stronger, it’s something to keep in mind however. The Gerber GDC Zip
Blade would make a great key chain knife.
