Designed for safety and simplicity, the trusty utility blade is popular tool for anyone taking on regular cutting tasks, but the latest from Gerber Gear features a few extra tricks up its sleeve. Neatly packaged into the Prybrid Utility is a total of seven extra tools, offering a surprising degree of versatility in a very pocket friendly package.

The Prybrid Utility measures 4.25 in (10.8 cm) long, 1.25 in (3.17 cm) across and weighs 2.9 oz (82 g). As you could probably guess from its name, it is primarily built to function as a hybrid tool offering a pry bar at one end and a standard, retractable box cutter blade at the other.

But the pry bar end of the tool is designed in such a way that its various edges and grooves enable it to take on a variety of tasks. These include functioning as a wire stripper, nail puller, small and large flathead driver and a bottle opener.

One of the particularly cool aspects of the design is cord cutting notch built into the handle itself, which allows for string, small rope or cables to be severed even with the blade safely tucked away.

Gerber Gear is also offering a slightly smaller version called the Prybrid X. Packing all the same functionality as the Prybrid Utility, this slightly cheaper option comes with a length of paracord wrapped around its body for an alternative gripping option, along with another attachment point for a keyring.

I like this. Especially the price. Of course it's more like a small rugged Stanley or Exacto knife with a few extras than a true "multi-tool". So more aimed at the handyman community than outdoor adventurers. Yeah it's nice. I'd stick one in my pocket whilst painting and decorating no problem. Cutter, paint pot pryer and bottle opener ! Neat.

Looks awesome, but with no pocket clip in pretty leery. I'll stick with my GilTek with the added clip. If an aftermarket clip comes out for this I'll look into it for sure
