Positive Reviews:


I see some of these reviews are older. I purchased one of these about a month ago from a store and am happy with it. No clip issues. I only bought one so cant say that they fixed the issue for all of them but either I am lucky or they did fix the issue. Just thought I would throw that out there in case you are considering one of these. I use it for cutting boxes and occasional screw driver and filing my nails when I brake them. I love that its on my keychain so I dont have to run around looking for it. I have removed it and added it back to my keychain probably 40x already and not issues as of yet. I can say, its still tough to close. It hurts my hand so I put it down on something and then push on the closures.

Good keychain knife

Great tool for carrying around every day on your keychain. DON'T USE THE CLIP ON THE KNIFE! The tool fell off of my keychain the first day I had it. I found it and threaded my keyring around the post at the base of the knife (by the clip). Guaranteed not to lose it now, and the bottle opener still works even with the keyring. Also, the tool is difficult to unlock. I found that it was easier when I held my keys and carabiner (that my keys are on), which in a way extended the handle of the knife.

Overall, a good tool to keep with you once you are able to work around the flaws!

Lots of Features for the Money

I wanted something small I could either put in my pocket or carry on my keychain. This is so small it fits into my pocket and I don't realize it's there. It has come in handy many times. I had read the review about the carabineer clip however I have not had any problems with mine at all. I've clipped it to my pack, keychain, etc. It has so many uses. If you are looking for something small and very functional I would recommend this tool! I've been very happy with it.

Great little knife

I haven't had any problems with this little knife. It's perfect for daily light duty tasks. As other reviews claimed it's poor quality, I took a chance and purchased it anyway. I'm very happy with it. I only carry it in my pocket and have not had any problems after using it daily for over 2 weeks.

Negative Reviews:

Good idea, poor execution

I bought this knife because I thought that it seemed like a really good idea. It packages a small knife blade, screwdrivers, and a bottle opener into a small, light, and easy to use package (particularly so because it is easy to remove the knife from your key chain). The knife attaches to your key chain using a carabiner/gate style clip, which makes it easy to remove so you can more easily use the knife/tools. HOWEVER, the little bent wire that serves as the clip/gate rather easily comes off and is difficult to get back on if it comes all the way off. As far as the tools include are concerned, I think having the screwdriver blades is a GREAT idea for this small of a knife. But, due to the rather open structure of this knife, the blade can come open if the tip gets hooked on something. Also, if you tend to fidgit with your keys (as I sometimes do), it is easy for the tip of the knife to nick your fingertip since you can access the knife blade from the underside if you are not careful. The locking mechanism has also proven to be a bit troublesome as it is not particulary easy to use.

Spring gate sprung off.

I put this on my keychain as soon as I got it.
Less than an hour later, I dropped my keys and the knife came off the keychain. Turns out that the spring gate popped out of its holes. I used my Leatherman multi-tool - How ironic is that? - to compress the spring gate just enough to get it back in the holes. It worked fine for about two days. Then I, as I unlocked my front door, I noticed the knife was gone. The spring had sprung again.I like Gerber products and have always had good luck with them, but, never got to use this one. Too bad.

I needed a small knife for work to open and break down boxes and I cannot carry a large knife at work. I read the poor reviews and bought it anyways thinking that it would work for my purposes having on my keys and having light use. I was wrong. Knife looks cool but the carabiner broke after a week or so. It is hard to open being so small. SO for a quick cut is was quicker to rip it with keys then to fiddle with this thing.

broke within a day

Thought this was super cool looking and nice to have a small handy knife. However turns out the carabiner clip broke within a day. It is also so small that when I don't have it clipped to anything (since clip is broken) it proves difficult to find and not worth the search. The blade is SHORT which turns out not to cut much :( I know it didn't cost a lot but I am still disappointed! Also locking mechanism is difficult to undo.

Looks cool but don't be fooled

At first glance and during the first few days you will think this is a great product, a handy little multi-tool, but once the spring gate that keeps it on your key chain fails off, you will curse the day you bought it. I almost lost the tool when this happened and have never been able to fix it since. Once this tool loses it's portability and handiness because you can't attach it to anything, it is worthless.

Buy something different

When I saw it, the Curve looked like a cool little tool to have on my keychain. However, the "handy" carabiner clip isn't durable enough to keep it on the keychain. I've almost lost it twice because the clip, simply, fell off.

You will lose this

I spent more time looking for this knife than actually using it. The last time the spring popped off (while taking my keys out of my pocket), I gave a cursory look around on the ground and said "screw it."

Cool tool, but you will lose it

You will lose this knife. The clip will come off. I removed mine and used an S-Biner to hold it my backpack. It fell off in the car. Cool looking, but not very functional.

Don't waste your money!!

Poor keyring attachment point. The tools are not user friendly like other micro-tools. I used to like Gerber but I fear they have gone cheap and some of their products show this!!!

I use the clip to hold my keys and almost lost my keys several times due to the clip falling off

Wish the Clip Was Better

I have found this knife to be handy and of fairly decent quality with the one notable exception that is stated in many of the other reviews....the clip is not particularly sturdy. Mine has unfastened from my keychain on several occasions. I really like this little knife (fits great in my pocket and on my keychain), but had resigned myself to the fact that I would eventually lose it. Then I found a solution. I don't use the clip anymore but rather use a tiny ball chain to attach the knife to my keychain. Not exactly what was intended, but it's far better than losing the knife.

Useful, bad key ring attachement design

My wife actually got this a year ago and overall has been very happy with it. No problems with the lock and very useful for everyday purposes, mostly the knife and screwdriver, and actually small enough to *keep* on a key chain.

However, the spring clip recently came out and was lost like others have mentioned. Unlike most of the reviews, though, it didn't happen until she'd had it about a year. Honestly, the easiest solution is to thread it into a split ring so that it doesn't rely on the clip to stay attached. Problem circumvented.

Compact keychain knife

This knife is lightweight, compact, and fits on a keychain well. For occasional use it does just fine, especialy for the price. The unlock button is difficult to operate but seems to do a good job of keeping the knife open. I am not sure I would buy it again but it works ok for now.
grouse20 at REI on 10/10/2009

For the price, a good choice

I wanted a small pocket knife for my keychain. I saw this at an REI store, bought it. I seems to stay on my keychain with no problem. The blades are a bit hard to close. So, the quality is a bit lacking. But again, it's cheap, so my expectations are kind of low.
