    Item # 861738

    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Loading Ratings & Reviews...

    Gerber GDC Zip Blade is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Useful tool, but... I like the size and compactness, and the short little blade is thick and sharp - a tough little fingernail-sized piece of steel. I like that it locks open and is easy to close. Making it a zipper pull is a good idea as well. The only complaint I have is that it is dern near impossible to open - I have to shove a fingernail in between the blade and the retention spring/retention nib to provide some clearance in order to get it open - it is a clumsy, inconvenient, two-handed operation. I have tried opening it using my thumbnail in the blade slot, but I broke my nail trying to do it. The retention spring tension is way too aggressive.
