Building on the success of the larger one-hand opening models, this compact version is nimble but just as tough. Built to solve for everyday snags, this tool has 12 carefully chosen components packed into an unobtrusive 7 ounce package. Built in the USA, built to last.
There is justice in the world of Gerber multi-tools. Because while the Compact Sport may be the smaller, less formidable version of our Multi-Plier 600 series, this Multi-Plier 400 series compensates by being our most popular tool.
This is no small victory. After all, our ultra compact workhorse brings all the same functionality and rugged performance characteristics of its big brother. Thanks to its stainless steel hardware. And its Fiskars scissors, which have the wherewithal to cut through seat belts. And thanks, as well, to the patented design of its one-handed opening pliers.
The Compact is unmatched for strength, durability and ease of use. Our patented Saf.T.Plus locking system is your assurance that this little guy more than holds its own in the name of user safety. That is to say, your safety.
My first one was a gift back in 2007. Feels real good and has a good grip. I used the heck out of it even for jobs it wasn't meant for.
I broke the blade trying to open a jammed door (oops my fault). broke the scissors (dropped from elevation). Cuts and strips electrical wiring like a charm and even fencing wire.(I still have it and keep it in my tool box). I eventually purchased another in 2014 which I just recently ruined when I cut a live 240 VAC wire by accident and melted the wire cutter portion of it (everything else still works and functions just can't cut wire anymore). This is a great multi tool. I will be getting me another one due to that I need the wire cutting part of it. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't use it. On the job, camping, minor repair and crafting. Thank you for making such a great product..
Effective for the price. The cross blade screwdriver could be a little more pointed, but for light to medium use, it's fine.
This is the best tool I've ever owned. Beats the crap out of Leather man. Love the flick open and that the pliers is a true pliers that opens when I want it to. Knife is good and it's not so bulky like the 600. Wish the scissors was a file.

Piss poor wire cutting as blade metal is too soft.
Its a ok product, gets the job done
I have owned five other bladed Gerber products, and this by far the worst one.
It is too small to feel comfortable when using. The handle is too short to get good leverage when using the pliers
I also found it difficult to keep an edge on the older style blade, compared to the Flik or either 600 series that owned.
Over all, I am not impressed with this product and would not purchase again nor would I recommend it to others.
Great knife use it for everything really has all the tools you need, the blades are still sharp after 2 or 3 years of use
I've had my 400 compact sport for 7 years. No rust issues, blade still holds a edge, and everything still functions properly. Love the tool and the size is perfect. Not too small and not too big. Highly reccomend!
Personally,i love this tool.i lke how it is made;however;i wish the screwdrivers would be a little longer,and the wire cutters would be more sturdier,but overall! i still love this tool.I am a gear gadget collector,and freak.I never leave home without.
