UNDER COST PRICE - The Gerber Multi-Plier 600 is a fully functional toolbox that fits in the palm of your hand.
Introduced in 1997, the Multi-Plier® 600 Series is already one of the top selling tools in the world. It has features not found on any other multi-function tool, features that ensure when you pick it up, you won't put it back down. All Multi-Plier 600 Series tools have one-handed plier opening. No handle rotation or gyrations are necessary. Just a flick of the wrist slides the plier jaws into the locked and ready position. The Multi-Plier 600 Series has easy to access, all locking components. The locking system is the safest and easiest to use of all multi-function tools. Components lock up against a solid bar of steel, rather than a spring like other tools. To close, simply slide the lock release back and the component can then be rotated back into the handle. The Multi-Plier 600 Series also has independent tool rotation, allowing access to the component you want without the other tools following it out. Other notable features include smooth, non-pinching handles, and stainless steel construction.

Gerber's Multi-Plier® 600 Series is simply the best multi-function tool available today.

Features:

Needle nose pliers.
Wire cutters.
Crimper.
Fine edge knife.
Serrated knife.
Cross point screwdriver.
Small screwdriver.
Medium screwdriver.
Large screwdriver.
Can opener.
Bottle opener.
File.
Imperial and metric ruler.
SAF.T.PLUS locking system.
Black ballistic sheath included.
Length: 126mm (closed).
Weight: 244g.

That's an excellent price - I've had one for about 7/8 years and can vouch for their durability and usefulness. I paid about about $35 tax free for mine (from an American Army base in Germany) so, this really is good value.

I think it's just terrible that these sorts of tools are available to the general public, so that just anyone can walk around and - undo things! With a pair of pliers like that, fasteners of any age could be loosened!

Until the sale of these terrible tools is banned, anybody could end up with a screw loose!

Yes, I am a nut

the MAJOR flaw with this is that the pliers do no fold away. Difficult to explain until you actually use them but it basically can trap your fingers in them when using any of the other tools on it.

Youll find many Leatherman and Gerber tools that have fold away pliers....

Good price but not hot for me :-(

Very interesting post.... I never realised that, but i can see now that you are right.
I wouldn't buy these for this reason.

Nice Price but not for me due to above

Review of a similar model (the one on offer is the non-scout version I think):
reviewbunker.com/80/…ose

and to answer my earlier question in post #10 it doesn't look like it can use other screw bits so I'll be giving this a miss

Not as good as this Leatherman...... sweetie !? :whistling:

I have exaclty same model and can prodly can say THIS TOOL IS A LIVESAVER!
It was bought for £100 and I used it for two years it looks like new.
Excellent deal, heat and rep added.

I have used one of these for the past 5 years. I have used it at work constantly and on one occasion actually used it to rescue an elderly lady who had fallen over in her house. The nose of one side of the pliers broke under EXTREME pressure. I sent them back to Gerber (theres an office in Scotland) and they replaced it free and without question.
At this price it really is a bargain

Funny that.
I am a tradesman and keen DIYer and have had this tool (or similar) for about 5years and NEVER used it once.

Very expensive clutter for me.

Whilst not anti-knife in this context (I carry a leatherman PST-2 daily and find it incredibly useful) there are some things you need to know about these - legally, if the blades on these lock out and require a press etc to enable them to be folded, then they are an offensive weapon in the UK.

To put it into perspective, I am a Youth Offending Team Police Officer, and weekly end up dealing with young people who have fallen foul of this law - most commonly with those brass and wood locking knives from pound shops.

Whilst most items that are classed as offensive weapons are either being carried for protection, or made, adapted or intended to cause injury, there are some items that are offensive weapons per sae. These include flick knives, knuckledusters, and since 2003 (I think) any knife that locks.

I hate to be a killjoy, I've been looking to upgrade my leatherman but am struggling to find a newer one that doesn't lock out., and in today's police/government climate of arrest targets, if you get caught carrying one in public, you will be arrested as it's an easy nick for an officer.:x

I already have a Leatherman Wave and a Micra but for some reason I am really tempted to get one of these at this price. It's so unnecessary for me but still tempting.

Boyz toyz eh?

You got me there; I have the Leatherman Charge TTi, Crunch & Wave. I would put them up against this Gerber any day:-D

A perfect fathersday gift, it was on the list of requests, but originally out of my price range, so delighted, thank you :-D

Ha Ha.


Just checked. Mines a 'True Utility'.

Perhaps THATS why I have never used it.

Does anyone suppose that if it was a Leatherman, that I might be more inclined to use it?



BEARA - Thanks for the useful info. Worth knowing.

Shan't hold it against you that you're a rozzer. Someone's got to do it.:)

Great tool for an excellent price and quidco too! Cheers! Heat and rep added. Anyone had experience with this particular seller as I'm convinced at the tool but not had dealings with this seller?

Difficult to explain until you actually use them but it basically can trap your fingers in them when using any of the other tools on it. :-DOver the last 15 years I've had leathermans (crunch, PST, minitool, flair, wave, P4, P3, supertool, pulse), Gerbers (loads including older slide (like this one) and fold away models) and other lesser known makes of multitool, and would say the leathermans pinch my fingers just as much as the gerbers - whether slide away or fold away, so dont let that put you off. Just needs practice and a few painful lessons later you've learnt. :oops:You sort of flick your wrist downwards and the pliar head slides out just fine after practice and possibly a little lubricant over time, which is better than fold out ones as you just need to use one hand which is often the case if you're stuck in the middle of a job and holding something else in another hand whilst trying to sort the pliars out.

One of the main deal makers over the years is that Leatherman have a UK repair base and took back several multitools and replaced/ upgraded parts free of charge. Sent it to a UK address and a week or so later back with me, nice and shiny. One of the problems with Gerbers was that they had to be sent at your own expense bck to the US. I didnt know there was a UK address to send them to, and couldnt find one on the internet.
What is the address please as the only time I've sent a Gerber back within the UK was when I bought it from a UK seler and they replaced the item not a repair shop fixing it? If this can be confirmed thats excellent and I'd now say the lower end Gerbers are a little better value than the Leathermans (like this 600 model), but the higher end Leathermans beat the Gerbers in my book.

To be honest, its personal taste though so try them out in a camping shop first then hunt for the best deal online after you've found the one you like.

Sheesh! Sorry for the essay comments/ response on this one - hope the info helps.

Completely agree and shame its the case, as I suspect the law is intended to be there to protect, yet ironically the multi tools I've used without a locking blade feature nearly cut my fingers off after a bit of pressure on the blade as they fold in on you without warning - personally I'd sooner the majority have their fingers but feel sorry for stab victims when idiots who carry them for less honourable purposes ruin it for others. ( :whistling: waits for the debate responses on this one)

:thumbsup: WOW! I did not know that. Thanks for useful information. I thought it should be at least 9 cm to be a weapon. Are you sure that even a 1 cm locked locking out knife is a weapon?

P.S. This one is exactly 8 CM

Yes a 1cm locked open style knife would be an offensive weapon per se. Also any folding knife over 7.62cm is also a bladed article
