Oh OK so it is just a locking blade. I guess I should have relized that due to the Spydie UK pen knife.

I sooooooooooooooooooo want one of those Spydie's.  But they are real expensive. :(

I know  ::)  They should inscribe the blade with "Legal carry for the UK" or something.  Not that that would help I am sure.

Perhaps Spyderco can read my thoughts.  :D

That would be real cool.  Will still be ridiculously expensive over here though.  :(

Simple answer yes, but there are I think 3 options available (don't quote me) but I expect the cheapest price over here will be about £75 - 80.

They have brought out the UKPK in Foliage Green and Safety Orange just recently, but i think there is a new model coming out called the Urban that is still UK legal but slightly smaller. I think thats right anyway.

No problem, i'm quite excited by the Urban, and hopefully it will be a little cheaper than the UKPK seeing as its slightly smaller. It also looks less "aggressive" probably due to the colour of the scales, the orange and green UKPK's do look very nice though.

I hope so.  I have been looking for a OH UK legal EDC folder for a while and apart from the UKPK and the CRKT Edgie I have been unable to find any others.

For some reason it strikes me as a work-in-progress, but that could just be the X-acto blades, I've never like box cutters.

Actually I think the X Acto blades are the point of a knife like this.  Following the rousing success of the SuperKnife a few years ago that combined tactical knife features like OH opening and locking mechanisms with standard razor blades, and Gerber's eventual release, recal and re-release of the EAB, I think this is a logical step for them. 

One of the problems with such a small blade is that it can often be difficult to sharpen and Gerber has solved that problem by making it replaceable.  I think it's a pretty smart idea, especially considering the number of different types of X Acto blades available through the hobby community.

Here's a good example:

http://www.a2zhobbies.com/Xacto/Blades/

With a list like that you could carry what works best for you, or a different blade every day or for different circumstances.

I'll stick with my X-acto pen.


Ah well, time will tell how well this widget sells to folk more open minded than myself.

I'll be picking up two or three of these little guys. They will make great gifts for a couple of teenage nephews of mine.  :)

I have yet to hear anything.  I was supposed to be getting one from a certain Knives Illustrated Field Editor, but it seems he may have forgotten about me...

I'll send Dennis at Gerber-Tools.com another email and see if he's heard anything.

Hello everyone,

Does anybody know when this thing is supposed to come out? and what stores will be selling it?  I've checked the Gerber website, and they have no information.  Thanks.

According to Gerber-Tools.com, they are held up for a while.  It's unknown when they'll start appearing.
