GB31002736N: Vital Folding Exchange-A-Blade Knife
The folding version of the original Vital Fixed Blade Knife, the ingenious Vital Pocket Folder EAB features one of the safest Exchange-A-Blade options on the market. A smart mash-up of a replaceable utility blade with a high-visual orange rubber handle that won’t quit, this knife travels to the field and on the hunt with ease. 

Utilizes the Vital or the Havalon #60 Replacement Blades.

Simple and Fast

The innovative marriage of Gerber’s hunting savvy along with our exchangeable razor blade history has given birth to the Vital Pocket Folder EAB. Containing a punishingly sharp blade that mimics a surgical knife, the ingenious tool cuts through the cape of your game like a hot blade through butter. The inclusion of its several replacement blades means you won’t get caught in the middle of skinning with a dull tool. This is a knife that works fast and smart, and when the blade is burned out, can be replaced easily on the fly. It requires no extra tools for its blade replacement, so it doesn’t slow the action of field dressing, while offering super-safe operation as an exchangeable blade knife. 

Stainless Steel Sturdy

With a bright orange high-visual Vital handle it’s easy to spot this knife if you should drop it while out in the field. The Vital Pocket Folder’s large finger choil and larger width give it a solid, comfortable grip. Functioning beautifully in its simple role using utility blades that can be easily replaced as necessary, the Vital Pocket Folder EAB includes a #60 industry-standard attached razor blade and six #60 replaceable razor blades.

"Scary Sharp"
I use the Vital for everything, Pretty much anything except for turning screws etc. Extra blades available at Bass Pro Shop #60XT If you're looking for a carryable scalpel then look no further.. **WARNING** These blades are extremely sharp & will cut you if you look at them wrong.. Pay great care in replacing blades or you'll be getting stitches..

Pros: None
Cons: None
Broke after 3 weeks of medium to light use.
Im a shuttle semi driver for my company around town. I cut box straps and tape occasionally. Rarely ever cut anything thicker then paper. Sometimes cut shrink wrap around skids. Nothing special or tough. Goes through like butter. (Razor blades are 9/10 quality) however with a small flurish downward to cut some box straps on a load it got caught in the cardboard. Sheared the razor as I would expect. Unfortunately it also snapped the whole locking block off and the pin that held it looks pathetic and weak. I press on it woth my thumb nail and the ridges break.
