Subject: RE: Best Multitool?


NE Nebraska
I know Leatherman is popular, but for over 20 years I have carried the Gerber 600. Like any multi-tool there will be trade offs between weight, compactness, features, and durability. I find this Gerber to be a perfect mix. I love the one handed deployment of the pliers because I will often have a wrench or piece of wire in the other hand. The wire cutter works great and I will often cut barbed wire by cutting the strands separately. Warning- the version with the little replaceable wire cutter pieces is junk. The little pieces broke the first time I used it and I’ve always had long use out of the basic one piece wire cutter plier head. There is a needle nose and blunt nose plier option. Each feature has those limits that you need to just use common sense.
-I use the knives routinely and have occasionally broke the blades. I have sent a few back to Gerber for repair and always keep a Spare.
-The screw drivers get used often (with understood limits). -The file gets used in random situations.
-The little can opener deal is my go to for removing the master link clip on roller chain
-The measure marks on the side are used often
I also carry a 9/16 and 1/2 box end wrench in my pocket. I notice one of my pliers has USA stamped on it and another doesn’t. Made in USA is important to me so I may research that a bit.
