It's that time of year again! 2018 is here and while we are all excited about what new tools and gear are going to be announced at the 2018 SHOT Show, we also need to take a moment and look back on the gear issued in 2017!
As with last year's poll, each member has the opportunity to vote for up to three tools on the list, because let's face it, we all have a hard time just picking one!
With the introduction of the new black Gerber Center-Drive I thought it was about time to do a Group Buy on them. We should have also done one when the Center-Drive was originally issued, but we were a bit tied up with another Group Buy at the time, and when we got around to Gerber, everyone already had one.
It's my birthday and I'll give stuff away if I want to.... give stuff away if I want to..... give stuff away if I want to..... You'd give stuff away too if it happened to you!
Ok, now that I am going to have that song stuck in my head all day.... #facepalm
Here's this year's Birthday Extravaganza Giveaway:
It's a SOG PowerPlay with molded sheath, which I personally prefer over their nylon sheath because it's easy to clip on to virtually anything. The nylon sheath is actually really good too, but in this instance the molded nylon one is pretty sweet!
How are you going to get this excellent tool? Well, this year I am 43 years old, and I scoured the internet looking at numerology sites, scientific sites, occult sites and so on and found absolutely nothing special about the number 43 that I could use as a gimmick for the giveaway, so to commemorate that there's nothing at all special about being 43, I am calling it the Def's 43 Nothing Special Birthday Extravaganza!
Here's what you have to do- just make a post IN THIS THREAD wishing me a happy birthday (since I'm so narcissistic I want everyone to participate!) and you are entered into the draw I will make tomorrow morning (October 21st) for the SOG PowerPlay!
BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!
As a special little twist (you know, since there's nothing special this year! :P) if you post a pic of your EDC in your happy birthday post, I will throw in a little extra surprise if you win. Only those who post their EDC pic will be eligible to win the extra, whatever it is.
BUT WAIT, THERE'S EVEN MORE!
Seriously? Isn't the free tool enough?
Because here is something extra- for the next 24 hours, everything in The Multitool.org Store is 10% off when you use the code BIRTHDAY at checkout! No fooling!
I don't know what else to say, but that all of this seems like a pretty exceptional birthday celebration for a nothing special birthday to me!
This is it, the Grande Finale! Buckle up boys and girls!
The ending may surprise you somewhat, but it was absolutely, 100% as objective as I can personally get, and I stand by it. But, enough rambling about it- let's get down to it and find out once and for all, which multitool is better!
And, if you haven't seen the first three parts to this shootout you may want to check them out before this one:
|Part 1||Part 2||Part 3|
To continue our epic battle between large sliding head plier tools from both Leatherman and Gerber, today we are looking closely at the blades. Since both tools feature plain and serrated blades, we thought we would put them together and see how they stack up. Since blades are among the most used functions on a multitool we thought it was only fitting to dedicate an entire battle to just them.
As we begin, both the Center-Drive and the One Hand Tool (OHT) are tied at six points after Leatherman's early lead in Part 1 and Gerber's almost total domination in Part 2. Both tools are going to try to pull ahead today, as the final challenge is tomorrow, and time is running out!
