The ONLY thing i do not like about this knife is the size, if you are a bigger person it would be perfect, but my hands (no joke) are the size of a dollar bill so i was hoping for something a bit smaller but its not gerbers fault only my genes fault. The material is a bit rough to handle but the feel of the knife its self is nice. Feels extremely durable and theres no assembly required which i like. You also dont have to have Thor strength to open and close the knife. PSA this knife is very very very sharp straight from the box!!!

I carry this everywhere, everyday. It fits my hands well, is very sturdy and the blade is extremely sharp and easy to change when required. The blade fits tightly in the frame of the unit and doesn't slide out unexpectedly, it's locked in place until you need it. It requires a little effort to push the blade out which I like as a safety feature. It has a pry feature, bottle cap remover, safety cutter for a seat belt or string/cord. It's worth the money if you need a lightweight but sturdy EDC tool that's flat and fits in your pocket.

I've got an outdoor edge slidewinder knife on my other set of keys, and wanted something different for my main set of keys. After a bit of searching and watching reviews, I got the prybrid. I knew I wanted at least a replaceable blade knife, and the utility of a pry bar seemed nice to have as well. Fit and finish is really good on this tool, and it feels solid. The retractable blade is an exacto #11, a standard hobby knife blade that we buy by the 100 pack for crafts. Deploying the knife is a simple slide operation, and replacing the blade requires you to slide just a bit further past the first stop. I added a carabiner so the tool was easily removable from my keyring. One nice advantage over the slidewinder is that I haven't been stabbed in the leg by any sharp corners. The slidewinder's screwdriver tips would always poke me through my pants and I ended up sanding them down to avoid the pain (thus removing that practical touch). The prybrid doesn't have that shortcoming and I have full functionality of the tool. Overall, I'd highly recommend this tool. The slidewinder is great, but kind of a one trick pony with the knife blade. This adds functionality and usefulness that the slidewinder lacked.

Relationship status: it’s complicated. The killer feature of this tool for me is the exacto knife style blade that allows precise cutting. It’s easy to over look the usefulness of this when it seems like every other edc tool out there has some kind of blade. But few blades match the agility and ease of fine manipulation that this thing provides. And it’s an excellent box cutter too, which lets face it for most people is what you will use your knife for frequently. Zero time spent sharpening it, just easily replace the blade and you are good to go. So that “super steel” folding blade in your pocket that is next to impossible impossible to sharpen can be saved for the tougher tasks that truly need it rather than dulling it up on boxes. The prybar feature is a necessary tool to have. If you don’t carry a good pry tool already you may one day find yourself in a pinch where you are tempted to use a knife or other delicate tool to pry something. And that’s a costly mistake that wrecks tools and blades. This is quite a nice pry bar because it’s long enough to get a fair amount of leverage, with a good grip and it has a notch to help with nails. This is why I bought the prybrid x, but I do already have another pry tool in my edc (the everwratchet). So for me this is just an upgrade to a more competent pry tool for the times you need to pry something tougher than the lid of a paint can. If you don’t already have an edc tool for prying then just go ahead and get this right now. It checks that box well. So it’s love right? Well not really. This thing has some shortcomings that aren’t deal breakers but… things could be better. First, there’s no clip for this thing. So are you supposed to just have this thing floating around in your pocket? Putting it in that 5th pocket of jeans seems like the solution but the prybrid is too long. It will end up poking at you when you bend and you have that cord that’s going to stick out. The next disappointment is the button to advance the blade is kind of janky. It’s hard to depress and it doesn’t slide until you get it just right. It’s not the slick smooth experience it should be, and at the risk of losing my man card I will confide to you it kind of hurts my thumb sometimes. The final gripe is just that it’s not more. In a day and age when there are so many tools with genius level engineering this thing is just a cutter and a prybar in a tool that’s not flashy or compact. It just seems like there should be more to it especially in a tool this big. What’s that Gerber? Oh you have two screw drivers built in? At this point the reality sets in…it’s probably never going to be true love. It might not be the right tool, but it’s good enough for right now. And who knows, maybe in time it will be love. Updated to add one additional star. Despite my misgivings about aspects of this tool it has surprisingly enough become my most used edc tool lately. The lack of a good carry option continues to be frustrating, and I’ve almost lost it when it fell out of my gym shorts pocket in the back seat of a car. Also I find the cord gets in the way of the pry bar when using it, and honestly I don’t think the cord is really useful for much.

Shipping and handling, not a problem. The tool fits in your palm and seems to be made of quality material, I have not extensively tested it. The blade comes out easy and is retracted without a problem. Blade replacement may be a little tricky as you have to fully extend it and pull up a securing tab to slide the blade out. Where you lift the securing tab is at the back of the blade so just be careful. I carry this on the outside of my EDC for easy use.
