comment
" ...  The closed ends are wobbly and the tool overall feels a bit cheap.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The metal is much thinner, and the overall quality is pretty poor. ... It is noticeably lighter than the original, but not because the materials are lighter weight and more durable. ... It is lighter because it is cheaply made. ... The belt clip is weak and bent the first day I carried the tool in my pocket. ... It is very flimsy.  ...  "

" ...  I love that it comes with a pocket clip as I've had issues with the typical Gerber sheath.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Spring loaded is a must and the needle nose opens so wide. ... I love how it has a pocket clip so no bulky sheath is needed.  ...  "

comment
" ...  It's a nice tool and even though it holds up well (the pliers still squeeze very hard without having problems) it does feel a little flimsy and the pocket clip bends very easily.  ...  "

comment

comment
" ...  It feels cheap in the hand.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The closed ends are wobbly and the tool overall feels a bit cheap. ... This Gerber is not something I'd feel comfortable with relying upon.  ...  "
comment
" ...  It looks and feels like a knock off version of the brand. ... It feels like if you put pressure gripping something on the pliers the handles will bend or brake.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The half with the cross tip screwdriver is almost impossible to open with your bare hands, been using a flat head screwdriver just to get it opened, have tried high grade oil to no avail.  ...  "

" ...  the pliers don't line up, the release to close the blades is all out of center and requires lots of work to get it to move.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I got the tool and it came with broken scissors and a dull blade.  ...  "
comment
" ...  For cutting the string on round hay bales the retraction release for the knife blade is very difficult and almost impossible to operate with gloves on.  ...  "
comment
" ...  VERY DANGEROUS WITH THE KNIFE.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The factory edges on the knife and scissors are terribly dull.  ...  "
comment
" ...  I bought this to replace a lost Leatherman Rev because I liked the idea of the spring loaded pliers. ... The pliers work OK but the overall workmanship was pretty sloppy. ... The only thing without an edge was the knife blade. ... Sadly, I'm old enough to remember when the Gerber was a reliable knife company, but they seem to have devolved into a crappy gadget company.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Though this tool is not trash, I don't know if it will make the final cut.  ...  "
comment
" ...  Open the packaging and find its already dirty with sand or grit in the main joint of the needle nose, the needle nose has dents and the teeth on the tool are worn from use.  ...  "
