Ever since Gerber introduced it's first multitool design in 1991 they never seem to have a limit to their creativity. Gerber's trademark sliding plier head is what defines their multitools. That landmark design showed that Gerber was full of ingenuity and they hadn't stopped since.
Knives and multitools have been our EDC staple for a quite a while. Up until the last decade we used what we had; often in ways they were not intended for. People saw a need to carry a pocket or keychain pry bar and things haven't been the same since.
I am a member of various forums, knife sites and Facebook groups. I am part of the community not only because I am a knife knut but I like to see what's trending. I've seen many different blades take center stage, many of them budget blades. One blade that I see over and over again is the Gerber Pocket Square.
I've been a blade junkie ever since my first pocket knife about 20 years ago. I didn't get into knives before that because I was a city boy and my dad never carried one. Since my first one I've been hooked, didn't know how I got along before I had one. Using your rudimentary claws and teeth are far less effective than a sharp blade. I'm always on the hunt to the perfect edc blade. I want something light, easy to deploy and holds an edge well.
Continuing on with Keychain Week, we have the Gerber Vise! You may think we featured it a while ago, but in fact, that was the sister tool, the Splice- the main difference being the Splice has scissors and the Vise has pliers.
The Gerber Dime never fails to start a discussion, but one thing no one can deny is that it has the best bottle opener of any keychain multitool!
Few pocket knives manage to be inexpensive, readily available and good quality, but the Gerber Paraframe series like this partially serrated tanto scores on all three.
We fell in love with Gerber's Armbar platform when it was first announced at SHOT 2019, and a few years later our opinion hasn't changed!
Gerber's new Dual Force is one of the most popular multitool models released this year and it's easy to see why!
Okay, I get it, I talk a lot about cool tools, but this one takes the prize because it is actually called the Cool Tool!
What kind of people would write collect and review multitools? Quite simple really- we are designers and do-ers, outdoors types and indoor types, mechanics, doctors, problem solvers and problem makers. As such, we have, as a world spanning community, put every type, size and version of multitool, multifunction knife, pocket knife and all related products to every test we could manage in as many places and environments as there are.
