Gerber 6501 E-Z Out Junior Folding Knive 2-3/8 Blade Zytel Handle
The Gerber 6501 E-Z out JUNIOR folding knife has been my favorite among seven or eight pocket knives. The lite weight feature, nylon handle, quality of steel, and it's over-all fit and texture is pleasing.I keep it hooked onto a money clip that's easy to find in my pocket. I use it to open all my mail and various other packages I receive weekly. I have two Juniors one straight blade and the other a combo blade. The straight is the one I use the most. I lost my first straight Junior a few months ago, ordered a second, which I found the clip much stronger and a tighter fit to hang onto clothing. Just not losing these knives is a challenge.
