That's Not a Knife!

Despite what a certain dated Australian hero might tell you, these are in fact knives. Pretty useful ones, too, as they're both portable and, you know, sharp. For my money (and yours; this is ultimately a shopping site) those are pretty much the two main things knives have to be ... although maybe not in that order.

Blade isn't much use. Soft, serrated. I carried its predecessor for a while. Great for randomly vandalizing things. Bad for pretty much everything else. If you need something like this, you'd be better off with something else. Not useless, but if you own other tools, not likely going to get much satisfaction from a multi. Particularly, this multi. A bargain at half the price! heavier than carrying a knife, screwdriver and vise-grip, and not nearly as useful.

The Kershaw Vapor III Partially Serrated knife is a great utility knife to have around the house or office. I ordered one a while back one of the other times they were offered on here, and I definitely don't regret it. You won't regret it either, especially at 10 bucks.

It's predecessor? So basically your review has nothing to do with this particular Gerber? And I dont know about you, but for me, multi tools aren't meant to replace actual tools, and if you use a knife a lot (an actual tool), you should be carrying a knife.

The Kershaw here is awesome for the price BTW. China made, but impossible to beat for 10 bucks. Might buy a spare or two.

That CRKT knife is cheaper every time it shows up. I paid $10 for mine a month ago.

When did Gerber venture out of baby food and into multi-tools?

Why can't someone make a small tool like this that includes a can opener? I'd like to have one backpacking, but both Gerber and Leatherman make ones with can openers, but they weigh a ton. I'd like a small Swiss Army with a can opener as well, but the need to have like 10 blades to include a can opener.

The Kershaw VaporIII is a great knife and I gave each of my groomsmen one at my wedding. I cant complain about Kershaw knives and the Vapor stays with my hiking backpack. I paid $20 a piece off Amazon a few months back.

HEad over to an army surplus store and ask if they have any P-38s or P-51s? They are small enough to fit on a key ring.

My Pazoda is great. If I could afford another 29 for three more shipped I would but...Christmas shopping has me tapped out.

Anyone want to trade two plain edge Kershaws for the two serrated I bought?

Scott Pilgrim was a fun movie, but the paragraph write-up is hardly among woot!'s best.

No takers on the trade? I thought y'all were serration crazy. Oh well.

@Figit090 and @hondac95: Only non-serrated CRKT Pazoda knives are left; would you still recommend them?

75% of the Pazoda's I bought are non-serrated as they are easier to sharpen (not that they need to be). I only got 2 serrated in my collection just in case, as I see these more as a tool and sometimes they cut through a little bit faster, specially small branches. Doesn't matter which one you get, you'll be happy.

Bought a couple of the CRKT Pazodas in the last sale. I'm quite happy with them. Sturdy construction, decently sharp right out of the box, the open frame means box tape duty won't gunk up the works, and the pocket clip makes it convenient as a work knife. For $8 I doubt you could do better.

"Stock up?" On knives? I never figured that knives were a disposable product, like TP or baked beans.

They are good for "last minute gifts", and they can be disposable, is all depends on where or how you use them ;)

Also, knives are sort of like swords. And you can never have too many swords.

Got my Pazoda and it won't lock open... Gonna have to do a bit of filing (the lock mechanism won't engage by itself, you can force it in but this is hardly practical).

But actually the metal that holds the knife from folding all the way back snapped on mine after not much use. Kind of annoying but I'm going to attempt to weld it regardless.
