A great price on this rather nice Gerber Ripstop multitool and folding pocket knife set.

Manufacturer's Description: The Gerber Ripstop has 13 tools including pliers, knife, saw and the famous Fiskars scissors. Gerber fans will recognise the stainless steel handles which are based on Gerber's classic Ripstop knife. This gift set combines both products in an attractive black faux leather presentation box.

Box contents:
- Gift box
- Gerber Ripstop multi tool
- Gerber Ripstop knife
- Nylon sheath

The multi-tool is similar to the Gerber Method that I posted some time back. It's not as grand as a top of the range Gerber or Leatherman, but it is a nice tool for the price, with the added bonus of the folding pocket knife. The pliers are spring loaded, which is something you'll appreciate once you compare it to non-spring loaded pliers.

N.B. The same tool without the folding pocket knife is £39.10 on Amazon!

I've gotten to the stage where i have a small collection of Gerbers and Leathermans (hey, other people collect shoes and jeans!) - they each have their advantages and disadvantages. My favourite is still the Leatherman Charge TTi, but given that that is more than £100 in most places a Gerber like this one is great value at £24.99!

Totally, but someone on a similar thread was saying build quality on the gerbers isn't quite as good....

I think that's more a matter of opinion than established fact - Gerber vs. Leatherman is one of those quasi-religious debates, such as Apple vs. PC, BMW vs. Mercedes, etc.

If anyone doesn't like the quality they can always return it to Amazon. I got one of these delivered this morning though, and it's really pretty good for the money.

Nicely reasoned, think I'll buy one to see :thumbsup:

Read the reviews on Amazon - there are three of them, all pretty fair in my view. Bear in mind that this is a mid-range Gerber rather than a top-of-the-range, and is made in China rather than the US, but the screwdriver points are hollow-ground rather than just stamped, they're a nice size, and the blades, though not massively long, take a nice edge. And I like the spring loaded pliers - something I miss on the more expensive Gerber and Leatherman models.

Not many if you leave it in a drawer, but if you have a occasional need for a screwdriver, pliers, etc. in the course of your work then this lets you carry around a lot of functionality in a small space. Bear in mind that the blades lock though, so you need a 'good reason' to carry one in public (e.g. working as a computer tech. or whatever), otherwise some copper with an eye on government targets and box-ticking (rather than an interest in justice and common sense) might try to nick you for it.

They seemed to have a bundle earlier - but it's still available for sale at the listed price, so if you're interested in one you could always order now, then you'll get it at this price even if they increase the price later (like they did with my last Gerber deal). And of course, if you change your mind before they deliver it then you can always cancel your order. HTH.
#12
good deal, out of stock and i may be being stupid but it seems i'm unable to buy now and wait for stock, it just says sign up to be notified when it's back in stock

I bought the Leatherman Skeletool posted on here a while back, and use it all the time in work. It's a fantastic bit of kit. However beware that anything with a locking blade is illegal in UK, and as such, this causes problems. Even for me!
#14
tbh my gerber is infinitly better than my leatherman (in fact the blade has started to rust on my Lman!)

Even with "valid cause" to carry one? ie Computer technician?

Really? I bought a Gerber a few years back and it only ever comes out of the drawer for walking trips/camping or garden use. Useful to know.

Shame this sold out, was looking for something like this for my son for his upcoming Scout trip.

My understanding is that the letter of the law states that folding knives with blades up to 3" in length are permitted to be carried, but that a ruling by a judge to the effect that a knife with a lock is not then a folding knife effectively classed locking blades as something that, like other knives, you need a reasonable excuse to be carrying in public, e.g. a chef on his way to or from work.

In my case I usually carry a multitool when I'm working (in computer/networking tech.), but not if I'm just nipping out to the shops (I also have a Leatherman Micra that doesn't lock on my keyring - very useful in the absence of a bigger multitool).

The real problem of course is making the distinction between the hooded yob with a locking knife and the middle-aged techie with a multitool - in the past the Police could be almost trusted to be sensible in applying the law, whereas nowadays, many Police officers put notching up an arrest (for the purposes of career and govt. stats) over common-sense and serving the public - another wonderful way in which ZaNuLabour has 'improved' our country.

Flick knives et al are seriously verboten in the UK - you're allowed to possess one in your home (not on the streets), but I recall reading that it's illegal to sell, purchase, import, transfer them, etc. etc. - so unless its acquisition predates those possibilities the chances of possessing one legally, even at home, are not on the high side!
#21
As previous posters have said, < 3" is fine, as long as you're not waving it about in public. However, if you are carrying one, and are stopped by Mr Plod, be prepared to have a valid excuse, or it's ta ta to the knife, or worse, chatty chatty in the interview room.
If it's more than 3" or locks in a way that you cant close it without pressing a button etc, then it's smelly do-do of the highest order.
My Skeletool is invaluable everyday, and has helped me countless times in work, I just wish it didn't lock!
#22
The locking mechanism is what makes using these multi-tools safe, I've used a Swiss Army knife in the past without one and the blade has closed in use and cut me on a couple of occasions.

Its now back on at amazon as pre order for same price.
