Best utility knife ever

At Target today I bought a Gerber EAB Pocket Knife.  Instead of a traditional knife blade, it uses standard utility knife blades.  But unlike a typical utility knife, the Gerber EAB is tiny, barely bigger than the blade itself, and extremely lightweight.   This is a knife you could easily carry around in your pocket.  It's made of matte gray stainless steel so it looks really nice too.  Best of all, it's less than $11, which isn't much more than you'd pay for a regular utility knife.

(I found it in with the camping equipment, not in the tool department.)

I found a similar knife at Home Depot. Problem is, my co-workers seem to favor these as well... and off they walk.

I have one of those too. It's much heavier and bulkier than the Gerber. The Husky is better suited for heavy-duty cutting (carpet, drywall, etc), but it's kinda big to carry around in your pocket. The handle of the Gerber is too small and too smooth for heavy-duty work, but it's perfect for cutting cardboard or opening plastic clamshells.
